We took the Wednesday market class and had a fabulous time. While touring the Marais district we visited specialty shops and the outdoor market with the unique perspective of seeing it through the eyes of a Parisian chef. When we returned to prepare our finds, we were met with a friendly staff and wonderful glass of wine. We learned some wonderful new cooking techniques and sampled the amazing French food we prepared! It was the perfect meal. I would go back again and again and again.

Arrived in Paris last Monday for a solo trip - but registered for two classes at La Cuisine Paris before I left California - based on the reviews here. Loved both classes and then registered for a third!
This is my fourth trip to Paris and the cooking classes stand out one of the best experiences. (I also have loved my evening visits to a calm Louvre and this trip I have loved staying out of the metro and walking up top everywhere I can.) I would register for more classes but they are sold out for my remaining few days...
I took the croissant class with Jenni - she is a good listener and patient with answering
basic questions. You WILL be able to do this when you get back home. (Take additional notes on the recipe paper provided.)
I also took the market class with Justin and made a delicious lunch with a fun group that was so educational that I registered for the dinner class that night. Justin is serious about what you learn - he was invested in showing us cooking skills and facts about cooking tools that he could have easily skipped over.
People in my classes came from all over: Singapore, Australia, California, New York City, Tennessee, Toronto, Korea and South Africa.

I've taken two cooking classes and I just signed up for two more! This is a marvelous experience that I highly recommend to anyone interested in learning from the BEST in perfectly appointed kitchens. Plus you'll get to devour your wonderful creations in the company of new friends.

Here we had what can only be described as an out-of-this-world experience.
We met Justin at the markets and decided on the menu - and then under his watchful eye and wise advice - selected the ingerdients.
Next is was back to the school to begin the preparation... duck breast, asaparagus and hollandaise sauce, potatoes in a perfect way, and a divine desert.
We all became immerseded in the process, aprons at the ready, sharp knives a go-go - and created a meal that will remain oin our memories for ever.
It would be fair to say that this experince was 'delish', in every way.
We would recommend this 100 times over!
We loved this expoerince - we have raved about it.
Get the picture!

Wow learned so much. I took a market and cooking class that lasted five hours. There were people from all over the world including a chief. It was so much fun and now I know what to look for when buying cheese, sausage, veggies and more. After we shopped the cooking began and then it was time to eat and drink wine. There was plenty of everything. It was one of the best meals I had in Paris. I've been cooking since I got home. The owners are lovely people and our chief Julie was the absoute best. Julie is so knowlegeable and charming. The business is run very professionally and so clean. This is a must if your going to Paris! Julie if you read this I went back to the market and tried the aged gouda cheese. It was amazing. Thank you
