Private Cooking Experience with Chef Marie-Françoise in a Parisian Home

This unique cooking class is taught by one of our favorite chefs and will take you on a tour of Parisian cuisine from the market to an exquisite home kitchen. Renowned chef and teacher Marie-Francoise will welcome her students with open arms in her own home, where a variety of French dishes, techniques and recipes will be effortlessly explained. Using simplified cooking methods that bring out the best results and which can easily be replicated well after a vacation is over, students will be treated to a hands-on class and will then be able to sample the fruits of their labor during a leisurely luncheon. For a full tutorial on French cuisine, this class can be combined with a market visit beforehand to pick out the best fresh ingredients that are abundant in the city and that change with every season. Delicious from start to finish, this is a rare opportunity to step into the shoes – and home – of an expert chef to learn the secrets of exceptional French cuisine.
