Three words about Tam: She is amazing! Tam was our guide for the market tour and cooking class and she just exceeded our expectations. When I booked this, I didn't know that she was a season 3 contestant on France's version of MasterChef. In a country were their cousin is taken so seriously, this is actually a big deal because the show is extremely competitive. For example, she was one of 20 contestants chosen out of 24,000 that applied. Tam is an expert, but more importantly, she is patient and was able to communicate well with us with her basic culinary English. My wife and I were the only ones to attend the lesson and we were able to pick our products with Tam. We then went back to her business location, which included a beautiful kitchen prepared our meal. We had a genuine French meal and it was delicious. What we cooked was simple, we assisted with the cooking, and Tam took the lead to make sure that our meal was first class. The entire experience took about 4 hours, but it was well worth the price. The lunch was the best that we had in the 10 days in France. It was simply excellent!

The tour was well organized with excellent choice of foods that were purchased in the market. Thea tubal cooking experience was well done, great instruction and highly interactive. The only downside was the original booking had us meet at one place while the instructor was in a different location. Took a few phone calls to straighten out but would still recommend it
