My granddaughter 7 yo and I took this class and it was a wonderful experience. Chef Dominique was a great teacher and since my granddaughter is a budding chef he let her do everything she knew how to do plus teaching us both new skills. The desserts we made were delicious and we have the recipes to make them again. This was a real treat for us to do together and I highly recommend this class for adults and children or both!

Frederick was great. Highlight of our trip. So much fun. Made 3 incredible desserts and learned a lot. His apartment was adorable and he was so much fun. Easy access as he lives right across the street from The Tube. He sent the recipes quickly and I can and #39;t wait to try them at home. Highly recommend!

Fabulous! Chef Marthe was great. Explained everything well, and followed up with e-mailed recipes. Left her class with lots of goodies. Would most definitely take more of her classes on our next trip to Paris.

Fabulous afternoon of culinary experiences. Dominique was excellent as both a chef and a conversationalist. I learnt a lot and had the chance to learn how to make true French desserts. Merci!

This was one of the highlights of the week. We went to the chef's home and he gave the lesson in his kitchen. Two other people joined us. It was very informative in terms of what ingredients one should choose, how to use them and how to mix them. The end product three desserts was delicious.

This was a huge highlight on our trip to Paris. Dominique Dury was welcoming and the desserts that we made were amazing. The organization of this venture, and the directions and instructions provided by this site for this activity were excellent! I would suggest that this is a 'must' thing to do when visiting Paris.
The recipes were immediately emailed to us and desserts were throughly enjoyed at our lesson and back at our hotel room. Many thanks!

Our family loved the cooking class and our chef was wonderful!! I would recommend as a great thing to do on your trip with your family. So interesting to see a Paris apartment and how Parisians live.

Chef Frederick was truly awesome. The class was held in his professional kitchen in a high rise with a breathtaking view of Paris. The instruction was directed to the three teenage girls while their families looked on and cheered. It was a totally hands on 3 hour class with instructions being very clear and delivered with lots of humor. Three scrumptious desserts were prepared which were savored by all present at the end of the class. The remaining portions were divided and boxed to go. I would recommend this class without any reservations. Ummmm- maybe one. We were promised the recipes to be received by email, but that did not happen! We are stll anxiously awaiting!

This was definitely one of the highlights of our honeymoon trip. We weren't sure what to expect and thought we would be wtih a group, so we were delightfully surprised when we showed up at the chef's apartment and it was just the chef and the two of us. We made three desserts, and just had a wonderful, delicious, relaxing afternoon with Chef Dury! Chef was well prepared, had all of the ingredients ready to go, was great about explaining everything to us, spoke English well, and was very helpful with directions back to our hotel after we left. This was truly a memorable experience which I would highly recommend to anyone!

Chef Dominique Dury was so inviting!
He was well prepared and had everything ready to go. He also did such a great job at explaining everything as we went. Highly recommend.
(Only thing is I and #39;m still waiting on the recipes - can and #39;t wait to try them at home)
Will never forget this experience!

Our family group of 7 enjoyed this baking class. It was instructive and fun, and the results were delicious. It is quite expensive however, at more than 100/person for a 3-hour class. And 7 people is too large a group. Although we paid 850 for our group of 7, only the 3 children in our group did any baking the adults just watched there is not enough for 7 people to do in a small kitchen. In hindsight, we should have just signed up the 3 children 1 adult, but nothing in the course description indicated that a maximum of 3 or 4 is the ideal class size. One other suggestion is to make clearer on the Viator website the existence of and difference between alternative classes. I know now that there is this desserts class and also a macaroon class had I realized that before, we may have signed up for the macaroon class instead.

Chef Dominique welcomed us to his home which is not in the center of Paris as promised easy to reach by Metro but at least a 30 min transfer ride. He is charming, fun, and knows his way around food. We were the only two present. Presentation and opportunity to participate in the recipe-making was basic and pleasant enough but we felt something was missing for the price we paid. Maybe a glass of wine when we ate our meal would have been nice.

Instructor was lovely but provided only 1 1/2 hours of very basic presentation of 3 very simple cakes, done
quickly without providing any new experience or learning new techniques, any hands on experience other than the most basic, and only for one of the two of us present.
Quite disappointing, as we eally expected more, and to have the time we paid for used. We were promised recipes and four days later have not received them.

We did not have Marthe, we had Fredric as our Chef. The class was suppose to be about 3 hours long, well it lasted less than 2 hours. In addition, we did not get a chance to really cook/bake much of anything. He did just about everything, so we did not get a chance to experience the joy of succeeding or failing. I would not recommend this class to anyone!
