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.
Fantastic! Cooking with Dominique was a wonderful experience, and we also learned a lot about French cooking.
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!!
Fantastic cooking class!!! I have cooked two of the four things we learned. The chef spoke great English and we were able to meet his family because it was a holiday. We really lucked out because there were only 2 of us that day.
EXACTLY the experience we were looking for! From the moment we arrived Chef Dominique was nothing but friendly and hospitable. After a nice chat over espresso we headed across the street to the farmer's market to gather fresh ingredients for our meal. Chef took the time to walk us through what local life is like and was sure to accommodate our food preferences. While preparing the meal he carefully walked us through each step and made it interactive to ensure we were learning as we went. We also appreciated we made dishes we would actually make in real life on an average week night and not something just for special occasions which we'd be less likely to make again. His beautiful daughter joined us for the finished product and we enjoyed the meal together. Thank you Chef Dominique!
We had an excellent experience with chef Fred who shared lots of tips with us and made sure everyone participated in the preparation of our meal. Highly recommended.
Great time. Fred is a great instructor. Taught out group some simple techniques we had never seen that will make cooking easier and better in the future. Also gave us a lot of great tips and best practices. In the end, we made a 3 course meal that we sat down for and was delicious. I would do it again as he always uses different recipes from his 25 year career in the restaurant industry in Paris.
The company was delightful, exploring the market was fun and interesting, the food was delicious, the recipes doable and innovative, the chef--Fred--charming and informative. All in all, a great experience.
This was a wonderful and tasty experience!! Marthe walked us through the market as she bought what we needed for our meal. She gave us time to stop at different stands and browse/buy things. The cooking portion of the day was back at her apartment. She did an excellent job of walking us through what we needed to do and let us actually do the cooking. Very hands-on! And oh my goodness - the resulting meal was DELICIOUS! She also sent us the recipes via email after the class, so we didn't have to worry about taking notes. This is a must-do!
