What's in our tour?

“Ooh La La Fun Cooking” is a fun, hands-on, and unique way to live a true Parisian food experience from end to end. It starts with shopping for fine foods at the local farmers market, and it ends with a refined meal in the home of a Parisian, with a full cooking class in-between.

We meet outside the metro station and head straight to the local farmers’ food market, to pick quality seasonal produce and explore local shops – cheese store, bakery, food and vegetable, butcher etc. We talk to merchants and pick what we will be cooking.

We then head back (after a final stop by the wine store) into the sophisticated private apartment of your Parisian host for the day, get introduced to the menu du jour, cooking ustensils, and protocol. We start cooking – there is a meal to make.

The cooking class is very hands-on – you are not there to watch, everyone cooks the whole meal. The host is an advanced recreational chef and food buff – sharing family tips and cooking traditions passed on from generation to generation.

After work comes the reward – we all sit down together for a meal that includes spectacular French dishes you will be able to reproduce at home to impress your friends and family.

Later, after the class, the host sends you the recipe of whatever you ended up choosing to cook that day.
