What a fun, unique, memorable day! Richard is a great host and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the market and the walk to Charlotte's home. When we arrived, she was busy finishing a catering job for Fashion Week, which only made the atmosphere more exciting. It was fun to hear about her catering jobs for fashion houses; I'm sure...

I enjoyed my Eye Prefer Paris Marais tour so much I immediately signed up for their cooking class. Richard was kind enough to fit me in a class that was going on the next day. I met Charlotte at the market along with four other people and toured the market. I had never seen such a market in the US,... More

We scheduled a Tuesday evening cooking class and met our chef, Charlotte, who took us to Rue Cler, a famed market street in Paris. There were 6 in the class, which made the shared experience very interesting and friendly. After shopping, we went to Charlotte's lovely townhouse and all helped with the cooking. We've been to other cooking classes in... More

I recently took my two daughters to Paris and booked a cooking class with Charlotte. My younger daughter loves to cook and the other much prefers takeout! This class was perfect for all of us as we could participate as much or as little as we liked. We began the morning with a wonderful visit to the open air market... More

My daughter and I enjoyed meeting and cooking with Charlotte. The food and wines were delicious. We started with a nice tour of the nearby market where we bought some ingredients for the class and then went back to Charlotte's lovely home to cook. We learned quite a lot about food sourcing and the differences between French and American staples... More

We loved our luncheon that we prepared together. It was very special to... More

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.
