Fun and friendly, not worth the money

This was a lovely class but there were 8 people all cooking the same cake. So 1 person weighed the flour while we all watched. And then someone cut up butter…and we all watched. So for more than $100 you get to watch strangers cook while you get to mix a bowl for a few minutes. Cakes were yummy though and the chef was very very sweet and knowledgeable!

Dear Lauren, Thank you for your review! We are sorry that you are not very satisfied with the Dessert Class. Unfortunately the group classes cannot be personalized because you also have other clients participating. Next time please feel free to book a private cooking class and we will be happy to welcome you. Best regards
So fun!

Baking class with Dominique was wonderful - He was organized and chose three "easy" pastries for us to make. One of the most memorable parts of our time in Paris.
Wonderful Parisian Cooking Class!

What a wonderful experience to have a French chef teach you to make 3 French Desserts in his own kitchen! It was just our four friends, and we had the BEST time! (But I am still waiting to receive the recipes via email as promised, lol)

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.
