The highlight of our trip! This was our third visit to Paris and we were seeking a uniquely Parisian experience. This tour exceeded our expectations. We met Aurore at Rue Cler, a street famed for its charming specialty shops. She shared cultural and historic information with us as we strolled & gathered ingredients from a variety of stores including a produce market, a fromagerie, a boucherie, a boulangerie and a lovely confiserie sweets shop. We even tasted a few samples as Aurore knew many of the shopkeepers. We visited her nearby apartment where she taught us French cooking techniques as we participated in the preparation of our meal . . . fabulous Tarragon Chicken in a mushroom cream sauce and for dessert, a divine poached pear with chocolate sauce. My husband and I cannot wait to prepare this meal for friends & relatives. A wonderful bonus: an informative "cheese etiquette" session as we enjoyed a variety of delicious cheeses, accompanied by a baguette and French wine!
If you're looking for an authentic & fun experience, we highly recommend "Amour en Cuisine" - I googled the translation: Love in the Kitchen. What a beautiful way to spend an afternoon in Paris! Merci beaucoup, Aurore!
