ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

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.

ABOUT THEMENU

As I prefer to use the freshest ingredients, let's discuss a recipe together based on the ingredients that you like and what's in season at the fresh market.

To give an idea, a sample menu would be as follows:

- Appetizer
Parmesan and tomato panna cotta (OR) zucchini terrine with fresh tomato sauce

- Main course
Marinated salmon with summer vegetables

- Dessert
Apricot tart or peach soup with white wine

ABOUT THELOCATION

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!

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

Super dîner chez Florence. Le hachis-parmentier de canard était à tomber. L'entrée aux lentilles et au saumon fumé parfaite. Bonne ambiance et super accueil, à refaire !
