ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

Hello everyone and thank you for your interest. Coming to my place, you shall experiment a typical Parisian dinner party. I will welcome you as I do with my friends. 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 cooking French dishes such as boeuf bourguignon, petit salé aux lentilles, hachis parmentier. But I like adding a touch of modernity to it. My inspiration comes from the vibrant Parisian cooking scene as well as the season and the produces it brings to the market. My cooking thus varies from one season to another to cook 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.

ABOUT THEMENU

A typical winter menu could include :

As a starter : cream of pumpkin or mushroom sauté

As a main dish : boeuf bourguignon, duck hachis parmentier or lamb shoulder with spices (please do not hesitate if you're looking for a vegetarian dish)

Plate of cheese from the market

As a desert : poire au vin, mousse au chocolat or panacotta with berries

ABOUT THELOCATION

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 an amazing host and we (myself and fiance) had a very enjoyable experience. Her apartment was very easy to find, and beautifully decorated inside as well. Her english was fluent and conversation flowed throughout the night between the three of us about all kinds of topics and experiences. Her cooking was wonderful, typical parisien food and done to perfection. Honestly could not recommend Florence, and indeed the experience more! Thank you!

Florence was an absolutely wonderful host. Dinner was amazing and delicious. She was very accommodating, when my partner felll ill the day before our dinner, she was able to cater to his diet so that we could all enjoy the evening! The next time we're in Paris, we'll be back :-)

Florence's beautiful apartment is just off the Champs-Elysees so it is in an excellent location and is easy to find. Florence hosted my wife and I in Feb 2017 for a wonderful dinner. When we first arrived we had to spend a few minutes marveling at her huge, ornate apartment. I was so stately that we almost felt like we should have been in formal evening wear! The five dinner courses consisted of: appetizers and bread with an aperitif, cauliflower soup with salmon roe, baked salmon with vegetables, assorted delicious cheeses, finished with a dessert sampler including a canele, mini chocolate lave cake, and lemon tart. Everything was absolutely Magnifique! Florence is well educated & traveled with impeccable english so she was very interesting to talk with. Hopefully we didn't pepper her with too many questions but it was so interesting to learn about her and the french culture from someone who could communicate it to us so well. It was such a wonderful & informative evening. Oh, and did I mention the food?

We had a pleasant evening with Florence in her beautiful apartment just off the Champs Elysee. The food was delicious and Florence was a lovely host. Directions were very easy to follow and it was an experience spending time in one of the Hausmann apartments. Recommended!
