The day begins at your hotel / residence where we will discuss the plans for the day.

Then we go to the local French market next to the Eiffel tower. Brian will design the menu with you and choose the foods you’ll like to discover while at the market.

Then, we gather at an elegant Hausmannian Residence on the border of Aristocratic 7th Arrondissement where we will both cook what we bought at the market and eat what we cooked to indulge our palate!

Brian will explain what the different foods are, where they come from and what pleasure they give to the French in their daily lives.

The French Family Food experience shows you what people really cook at home.

These are classic dishes easy to make without the fuss of having to be a chemist or physicist.
These are understandable recipes explained in a clear and concise way which will help you please your friends and family when you get back home.

The things you will learn are simple identifiable foods you can sink your teeth into!

9:00 am to 2:00 pm – Thu. & Sat. for Breteuil Market.
Other days neighboring markets available.
Food & wine extra.

Thank you so much for having taken the time to spend time with our group during our days in Paris. We were so fortunate to have met you on a day when that fabulous market was open.
Your cooking class was definitely the highlight of my trip to France. I am very eager to start applying all that you’ve taught us with some of the recipes we tackled. I’m definitely eager to try my hand at creating mustard sauces and that fabulous pastry cream !
Many thanks again for your time and your tremendous expertise. I hope to hear from you soon.
