paris evening cooking class localEnjoy a fun, informative evening cooking lesson with a charming, native Parisianne foodie in the comfort of her Paris apartment.

Before class, you’ll actually get to choose your three-course menu from a variety of options, all based on what will be fresh and in-season at her local food market at the time of your visit. Your five hour experience will begin at 6:00pm, with champagne and snacks while getting aquainted.

Then you’ll begin preparing your appetizer, main course and dessert. After your lesson, you’ll sit down to a casual, relaxing meal with her and her husband to dine on your dishes while enjoying wine.

You’ll finish the meal with a selection of delicious French cheeses. Classes are small and intimate, with no more than four guests. This one is more than a cooking class, it’s an experience, a Paris memory and a wonderful way to spend time with friendly French locals!

COST: 110€ per person [min 3] ; 90€ for children ages 9-18

We enjoyed the cooking class, Anne was delightful! She made us feel extremely welcomed in her home and we felt like old friends rather then paid guests – S. LINOU




Your guide is a local Parisienne and passionate foodie who has been shopping at her favorite food market for the past seven years.  Together, you’ll spend three hours exploring an off-the-beaten-path food market, the Marché d’Aligre.

You’ll begin your morning at a cafe just steps from the market while getting acquainted over fresh, flaky croissants and espresso or creamy cafe au lait. You’ll then discover the lively, colorful market.

Your guide will introduce you to the friendly stall keepers and bring you to wonderful gourmet shops around the market : a pâtisserie, a North African bakery, a wine cave, and shops specializing in chocolates, cheese, spices, olive oil and Alsatian treats, where you will sample the tastiest items.

Along the way, you will learn how to shop like a local, learn all about the seasonal produce and how the French prepare and enjoy them.

Finish your tour by visiting one of the most gastronomic streets in Paris to explore some of the famous restaurants and a gourmet bookstore.

COST: 125€ per person
