My and my wife booked the cooking class that is offered through the owner of My Hush-Hush Paris, Phillipe. The class was a first rate experience for a great value that I can't recommend more.
First, you meet Phillipe outside of a farmers market where he takes you to buy all the ingredients your will need to cook your meal. You do an appetizer, entree, cheese plate and a desert for your meal and many of the items you will need will be fresh ingredients from local vendors. He knows all the farmers and the tour includes all the food you purchase so you don't pay for a thing. We visited a grocery store and a cheese store to round on the ingredients and then walked back to his apartment (about two blocks) to start cooking. Phillipe takes you through a step by step walkthrough of how to cook traditional French items and I have to say, he does a great job at making them simple yet elegant and delicious. I can honestly say that I learned how to cook things I would actually now make at home.
Phillipe is a delight to hang out with for four hours. He is extremely knowledgeable about Paris and there wasn't one question he wasn't able to answer. His knowledge is more then just gastronomical as he is a student of history and French culture through and through.
Really, if you are thinking about doing something a bit different on your next trip to Paris, book Phillipe's cooking class. His menu's are seasonal and I would definitely come back if I came back to Paris.
