If you have been dreaming of having the ultimate foodie experience in Paris then look no further. Come experience a typical Parisian dining experience at my place.
First, we'll have an apéritif in my living room decorated with XVIIIth century woodworks, paintings and furniture. We'll then move on to the dining room where I will serve you a three course meal and you can experience French food with a local. I've been brought up with French dishes such as Boeuf Bourguignon (classic French beef stew), Petit Salé aux Lentilles (a stew of boiled cured pork belly with puy letils), Hachis Parmentier (similar to a Cottage Pie), but I like adding a touch of modernity to it. My inspiration comes from the vibrant Parisian cooking scene, as well as the seasons and produce it brings to the market. My cooking thus varies from one season to another and I cook only with the freshest ingredients in order to make a delightful, tasty and memorable meal.
Wine will also be served. I have my own cellar but please let me know if you have any specific requests.
I live steps away of the Champs-Elysées in a typical Haussmanian appartment built in the 19th century. It is very central with a lot of public transportation and taxi stations around. The surroundings include some major museums such as the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais, the Jacquemart-André museum, the Musée du Jeu de paume for photography and l'Orangerie where Monet's nympheas are on display. The Modern art museum is also at walking distance as well the Galliera Museum. It's perfect to come here for a lesson in French cooking after a day exploring the capital!
Florence was a wonderful host! My family of 6 joined her for our last night in Paris and enjoyed an incredible authentic French meal and great conversation with Florence. The food was incredible, delicious, and not typical to back home. From the starters to all courses of the meal, we could tell the amount of time, detail and passion that she put into everything. It was the perfect experience! Thank you Florence!
I misread the time of dinner, so I did not make it. I'm sure it was lovely.
We had a most enjoyable evening with Florence. Easy to find, beautiful flat, enchanting hostess and fabulous food!!!! Would highly recommend Florence for giving yourself a treat while in Paris!
Florence was a very interesting lady and I loved her beautiful Parisian home.Anyone who fills their home with books art and a cat gets my vote.Very tasty soup,excellant cheese plates and yummy chocolate pots with fruit.I would definitely visit Florence again when I am in Paris.Maybe a fish course next time?
Thank you again for hosting us in your lovely apartment, and for the wonderful meal you prepared, and for being such a warm and friendly hostess to us. We all came away feeling we had made a new friend in Paris. Your apartment was the perfect environment for us to create a moment from the past elegance of the day - something I appreciated so very much, and I am sure my daughters and our friend Cherie, will remember as a most unique experience. Your menu and food preparation was perfection! We all loved everything, and any recipes you care to share we would be so delighted to have. I will tell my friends about you, and will see if my cousin, whom I am coming back to Paris with in April, would like to come an experience a meal with you as well. Many thanks for the special memories and great dinner. Sincerely, Joan Hollis, daughters and friend.
When you enter the "appartment" it is as if you are in Belle Epoque Paris but with all the modern conveniences. Dining with Florence, a charming hostess, is a 5 star experience; the beautifully plated meal that she served was made with all fresh ingredients and beautifully plated. She will help you to select a wine that complements your dinner. A plus is that she knows all the shops to buy gourmet foods and sturdy pans to bring back home. We hope to return soon for a real Parisian experience. Luci and Bill
