Travelers to Paris looking to unleash their inner Julia Child can attempt to master the art of French cooking under the guidance of expert chefs while engaging with locals who are as passionate about the culture as they are about the cuisine.
Visitors can learn to make traditional French macaroons from a local chef, or perfect the art of desserts and pastries while sipping coffee and wine in the apartment of a professional chef. Travelers can pair off with other chefs-in-training and learn how to cook a traditional three-course Parisian meal. Bread bakers can even take on baguettes and croissants at a two-hour workshop that brings the classic confections to life using recipes handed down from generations.
