We were a group of moms and daughters and we did a cooking day with Charlotte. We started the morning by shopping in the market with Richard. A fascinating experience. We also picked up some other good finds to bring home with us. A short walk to Charlotte's house with a great spot for pictures of the Eiffel tower. The... 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 were a group of two moms and two 16 yo daughters. Richard was the perfect guide for the cultural experience to walk the market, shop for ingredients and other items to take home like jams, scarves, lavender, etc. Charlotte is a delightful hostess and skilled chef. We loved our luncheon that we prepared together. It was very special to... More

Great experience with Richard, our market guide and Charlotte the chef. Very relaxed and fun setting and I really learned a lot, especially about where our food comes from and how it is processed (even here in the US!). Would highly recommend this for anyone looking to have an authentice Paris experience!

Our cooking class with Charlotte was such a happy experience. After purchasing some supplies with our guide, Richard, we met Charlotte at her amazing townhouse. She is very friendly and easy to be with, and the cooking lesson proceeded smoothly . Some of us are accomplished cooks and mostly looked on while the two teenagers with us were hands-on. We...

After having such a great time with the Eye Prefer Paris tour, I decided to do a cooking class through them. It was a really fun experience. Richard took us to even more food markets to shop for our ingredients. All the shops are just beautiful. We went to Charlotte's house, a wonderful five story townhouse with a big open... More

One of the best days of our trip! Charlotte's educational and entertaining market tour and cooking class were relaxed and fun. It felt like we had been friends for ages, just spending a day together. The food was delicious and will be easy to replicate later in our own kitchen. I've already recommended Charlotte's cooking class to friends.

Then off to La Maison Charlotte. It was a tour de force of cooking, camaraderie, and joyful eating.The practical and easy to follow nature of the meal we prepared... More

Today we had a delightful experience with Charlotte and Richard for a day of shopping and cooking just off Rue Cler. Our group of six loved the food, the information from Charlotte, the tour of the area from Richard, and the fun as a family of being together in such a relaxed atmosphere. Charlotte is so engaging, so unpretentious and... 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.
