If you have been dreaming of having the ultimate culinary vacation in Paris, then this is the foodie experience for you.
Coming to my place, you will experience at typical Parisian dining experience. First, we'll have an apéritif in my living room decorated with XVIIIth century woodworks, paintings and furniture. Then we will move to my kitchen where I will guide you through the process of cooking and learning some of my family recipes that have been handed down for generations. I will also share some tips and tricks for mastering different French dishes, something I have learnt throughout the years
I grew up with French dishes such as Boeuf Bourguignon (slow-cooked beef stew), Petit Salé aux Lentilles (stew of boiled cured pork with puy lentils), Hachis Parmentier (similar to 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 wonderful seasonal produce from the market. We can cook different dishes together, depending on the season, cook with the freshest ingredients to create 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 just steps away of the Champs-Elysées in a typical Haussmann-styled apartment 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!
My daughter and I had a marvelous time. Florence was. An excellent hostess and teacher. We so enjoyed our time!
My husband and I had a wonderful time with Florence. She taught us some things about traditional French cooking as well as about the culture. She even helped us learn some French phrases! Her apartment is exquisite and the food to die for! I highly recommend this course. Be sure to arrive hungry!!
Wonderful evening cooking with Florence. She prepared a wonderful, surprising meal, and she accommodated our dietary restrictions. We loved the conversation and spending time in her beautiful home
Florence was great. Food was fantastic. The experience as a whole gives you a deeper look into Paris.
This was a great night! Thanks Florence for welcoming us into your home and serving us such great food! Florence was warm and inviting and we were treated like old friends. Love the Paris apartment and the conversations about her family and old portraits on the walls. Thanks again Florence...and our friends from San Diego! Awesome night.
Another incredible meal in Florence's magnificent home. Merci, Florence. See you again next year! Ann Marie and Ken, NYC
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
