“Great, fun way to try French cooking (but it helps to speak French!)”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

My friend and I decided on a whim to do a French Cooking class on our one day in Paris, and we were able to book a 45 min class the night before.

Navigating our way to the class was more difficult as the taxi driver and surrounding shops didn't know what we were talking about, and we didn't realise that the class was being held within the larger shopping centre; however we made it just in time and the head chef was very friendly, despite the fact that my own french is somewhat limited, and my friend's non-existant!

Despite the language barrier, the class was still very easy to follow and at the end, we had a delicious lunch, with a lovely wine to go with it and a recipe to take home (albeit in French!).

It was a great, unusual thing to do, whilst still being brief and central enough to allow us to do some other touristy things. I'd happily recommend!

“Aix-en-Provence Location for L'atelier des Chefs is Excellent!”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

While visiting Aix-en-Provence we wanted to enjoy a cooking class and there were a few different culinary schools. L'atelier des Chefs offered many options - classes that were all day, to just a few hours, to one hour or even a half hour - something to fit everyone's needs and interests! We chose to do a one-hour class and it was perfect. We learned how to make risotto with prawns, parmesan crisps for an entree and a carmelized pear and tiramisu for dessert.

We had a total of six participants in our class and we all enjoyed learning to make these items and then dining together after and enjoying our culinary creations! Would definitely attend another class here!

“French cooking class in English at Bazarre Hotel d'Ville”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

Located inside the iconic Bazarre Hotel d'Ville (BHV) department store and 1 block from Notre Dame, this was the perfect cooking class for our small group. They offer several classes, this one was 3 hours, and featured traditional French dishes featuring fish and potatoes. The class was a total of 10, half French, the other half a mixture of nationalities, but followed instructions in English. The chef was entertaining and provided us with cooking tips. We had a great view of the Hotel d'Ville across the street. at 35 Euros, it was really the perfect class for us.
