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!!

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!
