“My daughter and I loved it!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

My daughter (age 11) and I did the "petite chef" cooking class. It was so much fun. We made chocolate truffles, Eiffel Tower shaped cookies, hot chocolate and Madeleines. It's a very small group, and the kids do everything. And, the treats taste delicious! It's a wonderful way to spend 2 hours in Paris. For this class, you head downstairs into a basement type area that is really intimate and lovely. The instructor (Frances) was wonderful with the kids, clearly enjoys what she does and made the experience wonderful. It's a great way to slow down your day a bit from all the walking and sight seeing that you're doing. And, you have almost 3 dozen treats to take back to family. This was a great experience for us, I definitely recommend it!

Bonjour rkcue!
It was a pleasure to have you and your ‘petite chef’ with us for our children’s cooking class! We hope that it has inspired you both to do lots of baking at home. Don’t forget to send us some photos of all your creations when you make them. À bientôt!

“Experience the essence of French cooking”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My son and I recently took a cooking class with La Cuisine Paris, while visiting. Our class involved shopping for our ingredients at the local market, bakery, fishmonger and fromagerie then taking our goodies back to class and whipping up an exquisite meal! It was exciting to wander through the market and see all the fresh foods and choices and learn from our guide and chef what to look for and how to choose your ingredients. Emily (not sure of her spelling) was a delight as our guide through the markets and chef. She exuded a passion for her culture, food and sharing it with all of us. I only wish we had more time to indulge in more classes!

“Do not miss this! Bellies on Foot tour”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

My sister and I met up in Paris from differnt parts of the world for a short trip to France and Holland and this was absolutely the highlight of our short stay. . An amazing insight into the old food market area and the history of this district.The food was amazing and Karen you did a wonderful job as our tour guide. So glad we chose this rather than the regular tourist atrractions(which had seen on a previous trip)
We cannot say enough good things about La Cuisine Paris. If you only have a few spare hours after seeing the other attractions, take the time to enjoy one of the classes at La Cuisine.
Only sorry we could not get to make our croisssants.(class fully booked) Perhaps next time.
Thank you again for a wonderful afternoon.

Salut Rose v!
It was lovely to have you and your sister with us for our Bellies on Foot tour. That’s great that you enjoyed all the delicacies that we discovered on the tour – I hope you managed to purchase a few treats to take home with you too! I’m just sorry that we couldn’t get you into a croissant class this time around. But I suppose it’s a great excuse to come back to Paris and see us again soon ;). A bientôt!

“Baguette Baking”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

My daughter had already done a couple of classes here and enjoyed them so much that I booked us on the Baguette course.
It's not a cheap activity but it is well worth the cost. The class was well organised, entertaining and set at a level so everyone could take part.
I'm an experienced bread maker but have never managed to produce great baguettes before, but this course has changed that. Eric took the class with flare and style, he made jokes and kept it light hearted but was very serious when it came to instructions. The class is in English and part of the enjoyment was meeting travellers from all over the world.
The course took up a morning and at the end we had fresh bread and vegetable bread that we enjoyed for lunch.
There were lots of tips, techniques and information to learn.

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your baguette class with us and are very pleased to hear that even as an experienced bread maker, you still learnt a few new tips an techniques to help you perfect the art of baguette making. We know that you have already had a go at making your baguettes at home, so keep up the good work! I hope your daughter will have a chance to practice her new found skills from her classes too and we’ll hope to see you both back with us on your next visit to Paris!

“Let La Cuisine Paris add some fun to your stay!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

My sister and I completed a 10-day trip to Paris June 23 - July 3, 2014 centered wholly around a culinary theme. During our planning stages of searching for English-speaking culinary classes we found La Cuisine Paris. They have a wonderful variety of classes to choose from, including many that are hands-on as well as some that are more centered on a tour (like the Patisserie class or the day in Versailles). Even the non-cooking classes provide a terrific history of those aspects of French culinary traditions and make for a fun way to see parts of the city that you may not otherwise discover. The staff/team at La Cuisine Paris is the best - very accommodating, friendly, unassuming, enthusiastic, and FUN! They were very responsive to e-mails that we sent with inquiries, and even made room for one more in a class that was already filled. Besides providing such great class experiences, they will direct you to some of the best culinary supply shops and other "foodie" things not to miss while you are in the city. We did it ALL! Set up a class or two at La Cuisine Paris - you will NOT be disappointed! Signed: Rebecca of Colorado

Bonjour Rebecca S
Thank you for such a fabulous review of all the classes and tours that you took with us! It was a pleasure to have you and Jennifer with us for your culinary adventures and to celebrate such a special occasion – we were so sad to see you go at the end of your holiday! It’s great to know that you enjoyed your time with us and had a good cross section of all the things we offer, from our baking classes, to our Market class, to our Food tours! We all hope that you have both been inspired to get in the kitchen back home and keep up the work churning out fresh baguettes and whipping up fabulous french meals. Stay in touch with us and we would love to see you back here to visit your Paris family! A bientôt!
