This was one of our favorite days on our trip. We feel lucky to have had such a great host and group for our class. The food we prepared was fantastic!
Chef Dury was incredible. Very good host, wonderful menu with all instructions in excellent english. Can be a little challenging to find but an entirely worthwhile day! Cant wait to try recreating the meal at home.
My sister and I had an amazing time with Dominic!! He was a wonderful host and spoke great English. He went above and beyond to make our experience perfect!! We were staying by the Eiffel tower and successfully took the train there and back for about 3euro each round trip. The apartment had a great few of the garden and was very cool to experience the Paris way of life. The food and wine were incredible!!! I will definitely be trying the recipes at home! I highly recommend this cooking class!
Chef Fred was a gem and his kitchen was lovely. I would do his class over and over again along with recommending that everyone have this great french cooking experience.
Dominique was fantastic! This is a non-rush setting and a great activity for the family. The quail tasted great!
This was probably the true highlight of our entire trip. Fred's cooking school is located right near Pere Lechaise cemetary which was an added bonus at the end of the day. The school has a maximum of 8 participants and we were a group of 7 which worked out well. We started the day at the local market where we walked through and looked at everything before purchasing anything. Based on the produce, fish, meat and chicken looked, the group made decision with regard to what we would cook. Fred made the day fun, informative, and as much work as you wanted it to be. I would highly recommend this and look forward to a return trip.
Very worthwhile. Fred was very fluent in English and the dishes we prepared were delicious and simple to make at home.
Chef Martha was a fantastic host - she took us on a most informative and enjoyable tour of the local market and then orchestrated all 5 of us taking a lead role in preparing lunch. Great tuition, great food, great company. Who could ask for more?
Chef Dominique is engaging, witty, knowledgeable, great at helping amateur cooks put together a delicious meal and have fun doing it. Highly recommend.
Fred is very helpful and allowed us to have a say in the menu from when we walked around the market. I loved that our produce and meat were all right from the market down the street in Paris. Recipes also were mailed so you can make back at home.
There were 6 of us who met with Chef Fred, and the next 4.5 hours were a delight. First we walked 2 blocks to the morning market, perused what was available and came up with a menu. Back to his home we went, where a long, table greeted us...first used for prep and then for dining. He walked us through techniques for mincing shallots, not fingers, and a multitude of other helpful hints. Each of us got to try out each step of preparing and assembling our chicken. sage and prosciutto rollups, beet and goat cheese towers and accompanying vegetables. After we had all eaten, he walked us through the preparation of a passion fruit souffle, reminding us that the guests wait for the souffle, not the other way around. Truly an enjoyable morning...
This was the highlight of my trip to Paris! Didn't want to do touristy stuff as I've been to Paris many times. The direction to Chef Fred's home was so clear - even if it's your first time in Paris, you'll be able to follow. Highly suggest you take advantage of going to the market with the chef as he took us to a locals farmers market with beautiful produce. He didn't have a menu in mind, rather depended on what the farmers offered that day to put together a delicious menu for us. It was hand's on experience - there were 5 of us and each one of us had a hand on everything from appetizer, entree to dessert. Chef Fred was knowledgeable, funny and more importantly clean and organized. We enjoyed the meal we made with baguettes and delicious wine. Highly, highly recommend this activity!!
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.
Our chef Dominique our chef Dominique what's the most qualified teacher. His instructions made it very easy to make wonderful dishes from salad to desert.
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.
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.
