“You'll love this class!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Richard took our group of five sisters to the market before the cooking class. We picked up ingredients in the lively market and brought them to Charlotte's beautiful home. What a great way to start the day! Charlotte is a lovely person and excellent chef. We learned some great cooking tips and enjoyed asking Charlotte about her experiences in Paris and raising her children there. We watched and participated in preparing the courses. We enjoyed the delicious food over wine and great conversation. I highly recommend the cooking class with Charlotte. It was a highlight of our trip to Paris. It was a unique activity to add to our itinerary and we are so glad we did it! Our group had a wonderful time and went home with great memories and recipes! Thank you, Charlotte!! I'll bring my family to this class when I return to Paris!

“Yum and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We had a wonderful day with Charlotte! Richard brought us to the market as we picked up ingredients for our class we chatted we enjoyed the visual delights of the Paris markets. Richard delivered us to Charlottes lovely home where we we spent the rest of the morning and a good part of the afternoon learning about the French markets, agriculture, food storage, and many other topics. We had a wonderful salad, Kibbah Nayye with salmon, Roquefort Soufflé, and chocolate ganache tort! C'est magnifique! The food was delicious! Much laughter and learning made this a fun and enlightening day. A definite highlight of our trip!

“Great Cooking Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Prior to the event, our food preferences and allergies were reviewed. When we got to Paris, and the day of the class, the day started when our tour guide picked us up near the Rennes outdoor market, and we proceeded to buy some of the ingredients for our meal. We then went to Poilane on rue Cherche-Midi to buy some bread, and rolls for a mid-morning respite. They still had Christmas cookies on display, and we got to partake of the yummy, buttery deliciousness. We then metro'd it to Charlotte's home near the Eiffel Tower where we had coffee and rolls, and then made duck, chocolate gateaux torte, blue cheese souffles, and salad. We had a cheese plate from the cheese we bought at the Rennes market. Charlotte is super patient, friendly, and gave us great cooking tips we can use at home. She also gave us copies, in English, of all the recipes. Her kitchen facility is excellent and well set-up to accommodate the class. There were three of us - myself and my travel companion, plus someone we didn't know. By the end of the day, we were all best friends. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend it. Especially when you are museum'd out, and looking for something different - this is it!

“Thank you Charlotte!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

This experience, which was recommended to us by my daughter who did a course with Charlotte 12 months earlier, was definitely the highlight of our time in this wonderful city. Our day began with coffee in a little cafe, followed by an extremely informative and enjoyable stroll through the market to shop for our lunch menu. Then back to Charlotte's own home for the cooking experience of a life-time, sitting around her work bench, chopping, stirring and most importantly laughing! 6 hours, 3 courses and 2 bottles of wine later we wandered back to our hotel. My husband is a chef and not only found this day enjoyable but also extremely informative. Thank you Charlotte for such a fun-filled, wonderful experience.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

I loved the cooking class with Charlotte. A very French menu with loads of tricks and shortcuts revealed. I just made the Magret de canard at home and it was perfect.
Now on to try the chocolate gateaux.
Fun experience going to the marché first with Richard ingredient shopping.
