This is the third Paris cooking school where I have taken classes over the years. Our teacher, Diane, gave us an excellent class on preparing quiche and an apple tart. It was nice that the classroom kitchen was large enough to accommodate the group, and there was a special room for us to sit and enjoy what we had prepared.

I can't say enough great things about this experience! I took the mille feuille class which was 3 hours. The instruction was amazing and I learned so much. The class size was perfect compared to other baking classes that I have taken elsewhere and the time flew by. The classroom is conveniently located close to a Metro stop and I... More

Our family of four took the baguette class with Chef Guillaume.

Booked the 2-hour "eclair" class with my girlfriend, and was the only man there with seven women in the class ( I admit--I liked the odds). But no worries!

The weather for our Paris trip was looking a bit hit and miss so my husband booked a croissant/pastry workshop at La cuisine Paris. We loved our class with Eric! Fun and very informative. Nice small group and best of all - no previous experience required. Very tasty results!

Our family of 4 (kids 14 and 16) took a class for "Le Croissant and Traditional Breakfast Pastries" in August 2015. Everybody (even sceptics!) LOVED it.

This is my first trip to Paris, and I knew that it had to include a French food cooking class. And because croissants are just absolutely French, it had to be this class.

Who knew making baguettes is such a workout! Slapping and slamming the dough around as instructed by excellent chef/baker Eric worked up a sweat and produced yummy baguettes, rolls, and French foccacia. A fun, informative afternoon.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
