La Cuisine Paris is a cooking school in the centre of Paris offering hands-on cooking classes and food tours in English. Our school is located in the heart of Paris just minutes away from Notre Dame, the Marais, and the famous Hotel de Ville.

Our classes are taught in a warm and friendly environment and are small and hands-on - we like everyone to get stuck in! Join us to learn to make beautiful macarons or buttery croissants, or to learn how to use seasonal products inspired by a French Market visit. Or spend time with us outside of the kitchen and indulge your taste buds on a food tour, from our fromage and wine workshop, to our sweet Pastry and Chocolate tour, to our historical tour of the Kings kitchen garden in Versailles, there is something for everyone.

Come and join us to learn some tips and secrets so that you can recreate French cuisine in your home kitchen!

Had a fantastic time in the Choux pastry class with Francis. She was funny, and very patient with all of us. Everything was pre-measured for us, and then cleaned up (that was the best part). We made sweet and savoury pastries. All the staff were lovely and helpful. They stored our 'extras' in the fridge while we went sight-seeing for... More

My friend and I took the basic Macaron class. It was a lot of fun! The chef had pre-measured all of the ingredients out so we had to do all of the cooking and mixing. Even though the technique for Macaron can be complicated, the class was designed so it was nearly impossible to mess up your macarons!

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.
