We met Chef Fred in his flat and headed out to the market. After reviewing the freshest ingredients in the market, we settled on scallops. We were the only two in the class, which made it extra special as we were able to ask a million questions! What a wonderful way to spend a day making delicious food. We were able to learn new techniques and discuss many styles of cooking. We made a passion fruit soufflé that was out of this world! We used some tools that I currently did not have and Chef Fred sent us to a wonderful kitchen store to pick up what we needed. I have made the recipes at home and my friends want me to take another class soon!

We still talk about that day as one of our best in Paris. Marthe was a wonderful host and teacher. Aside from learning and having a great time cooking with her, we had a terrific meal and I've used her recipes many times since then in a real person's home in a neighborhood we'd never visited before. Even if you're not that much of a cook, this is a very good experience.

We had so much fun in Marthe's cooking class. We learned to cook a French chicken dish, zucchini salad, delicious chocolate fondant for dessert. Prior to cooking Marthe took us to the farmers market for some fresh produce shopping. We had the best time!!!! I highly recommend this cooking class to anyone visiting Paris. Marthe is located in the Montparnasse district of Paris. Excellent Chef Marthe! !!

I turned out to be the only student. You MUST do the market shopping add-on. It was great. And the recipes were too.

This class was a highlight of my visit to Paris. I've been to this lovely city many times, but learning to cook the cuisine and being invited into a charming home where the teacher is very knowledgable about her craft was unique and so much fun. I'm a serious cook, but Marthe has much to teach and I learned a great deal about cooking in general and French cooking in particular. More classes just like these, please!

I was so excited about this cooking course and it surpassed my expectations. As I was the only attendee booked for the day, I felt very privileged to have enjoyed a one on one French cooking session with Master Chef Dominique. I learnt so much in the four hours and now that I am back home I can't wait to utilise my new skills and impress my friends with Dominque's delicious menu. For me it was the ultimate culinary experience which I will certainly be doing again when I am next in Paris. Thank you Dominique and Viator for the memorable experience.

I was thrilled to have a 4-hour cooking class with Chef Dominique while vacationing in Paris. I happened to be the only one who had signed up for that day, so it was an extra bonus to have the time to pick Dominique's brain about French foods and cooking techniques. He is truly a Master Chef! The class exceeded all my expectations! We made delicious food that I could then go home and replicate for my family and friends. Definitely choose the option to go to the market with the chef, not just prepare and eat. It was a delight to watch Dominique interact with the vendors and talk about how to choose the right fish and vegetable for our meal. Next trip to Paris will find me signing up for another class!!
