  • Amazing!

    December 2019

    Our lunch cooking class with walk through the market was a perfect addition to our Paris visit. We would highly recommend a cooking class with Philippe. Not only was he a great chef but he was also a wonderful host. Thanks for a great day!
  • Had the best time

    November 2019

    Philippe was an excellent instructor. Because I was the only one who signed up for that day I felt a bit intimidated but he quickly put me at ease, and before I knew it we put together a fabulous meal. Highly recommended.
  • A great way to learn new techniques

    November 2019

    Our day started at a market looking for just the right ingredients. Myself and the other students contributed ideas until we came up with a menu based on what was freshest and most appetizing on the day. From the market to a cheese shop to buy only the best of cheeses, and then back to Chef's home to cook. All and all I had a wonderful day and learned quite a bit about the French approach to meal preparation. C'est bonne!
  • Great cooking class

    September 2018

    We had a great time with the small group and Philippe. Meeting him was easy and we proceeded to a wonderful market to pick up our ingredients. Cooking together was fun and we all learned some new skills in the kitchen. He’s a great teacher and storyteller. His apartment is very nice and perfect size for our group. Highly recommend this experience!
  • French Cooking with Philippe

    December 2017

    We had a great time cooking with Philippe. He had a great sense of humor and walked us through the preparation of a fantastic lunch. We highly recommend this experience when in Paris.
  • Paris fun cooking class

    January 2017

    Great fun! Phillipe is a wonderful host and excellent company. He took us through the market and also to a fantastic cheese shop educating us along the way. We then prepared an amazing and delicious meal in his apartment nearby and sat down to enjoy the meal with some lovely wine too. This was one of our favourite experiences in Paris.
  • A much better way to experience Paris!

    March 2014

    I feel like every big city we travel to is mostly just waiting in line for hours to see another monument or museum that my kids complain about. This time I wanted to do something more experiential and less touristy that actually engaged my kids and allowed us to meet the people who live and love the city. Well, this cooking school was exactly what I was hoping for and it delivered perfectly. Philippe was such a great host and did amazingly well with our 8 and 12 year old sons. Of course my kids were picky eaters and didn't eat everything, but they thoroughly enjoyed the experience...oh yeah, they DID eat lava cake of course! :) I'd highly recommend this as a different way to experience the sights, sounds, and most importantly the tastes of Paris!
  • Fabulous and Fun!

    March 2014

    This was the highlight of our trip to Paris! Philippe meets you at the market, lets you have input into the menu of the day and then takes you to his favorite vendors to select the produce, fish, bread, cheese and any other ingredients you may need. The cooking class itself is interactive and Philippe uses this time to start sharing his love of Paris and his may entertaining stories. If feels more like you are cooking with an old friend than a guide. Our lunch was delicious, but even more enjoyable because of Philippe! Hie is an impeccable host who knows how to make everyone feel relaxed and welcome. This was an exceptional experience and one I would strongly recommend!
  • Best meal in Paris

    March 2014

    Philippe really knows the good ropes. He has an excellent relashionship with all the food retailers in the area that provides in with the best products of high quality! What a pleasure to live that experience from a real parisian! Thanks again Philippe!
