At Place des Ternes - Metro Stop on Line 2
Come to a famous outdoor market in the heart of Paris, where I will guide you through the interesting parts of the market, talk about the different customary foods, and purchase everything we need for a wonderful meal, then prepare it at my home and dine together.
I will meet you at the nearby metro station, Place des Ternes, (Metro Line 2) where we will take a short five minute walk to the famous Rue Poncelet, where there is a wonderful outdoor market. We will buy lettuce, tomatoes, fresh basil, and onion at the green grocer, cheese at the famous Alléose Fromagerie, wine at an independant wine shop, then head to Divay, famous for their Foie Gras, and buy a freshly roasted chicken and their delicious potatoes. Additionally, we will have a tasting of France's famous Agen prunes. On the way to my home, where we will prepare our meal, we will also stop at a top ranked Boulangerie Thierry Meunier, where you will choose a pastry of your choice and a fresh baguette.
At my home you will help in the washing of the produce, making the salad dressing, cutting of the onions and tomatoes, plating the cheese, cutting the chicken up, etc. We will then sit down at a lovely table and enjoy the fruits of our labor, so to speak. I will provide coffee or tea, and sparkling or still water, as well. You can ask me about Paris, what to do, what to see, restaurants, how living here is different that being a tourist, or whatever is on your mind. The experience will last for approximately 3 hours, and don't worry.... there is no clean up for you! It is all taken care of!
The market at Rue Poncelet, is located in the 17th arrondisment, near the Metro Ternes (Line 2) and very near the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysees.
Dining with Camilla is a great experience. Everything she prepares is done with care and attention to detail. Her extensive knowledge of wines ensures that you will have an excellent pairing with the different courses. Camilla is a warm and hospitable hostess. You will leave with wonderful memories and a full tummy.
An excellent activity for adults. A most informative experience, and very enjoyable! I have attended many of Camilla's events and they are the best wine tasting experiences I have ever had. The samples of wine were excellent, and the explanations both informative and helpful. Her energy and friendliness is infectious. If you are a wine lover or new to wine altogether... Camilla is the person with which you MUST book. Friendly, knowledgeable and professional. When the tasting was over, I felt like I was leaving a group of old friends. Bottom line: great food and wine, a wealth of knowledge, and great company! What else could you ask for?
Dining with Camilla is more than just a great dinner experience in a Parisian apartment. Camilla can not only prepare you an interesting, varied, and delicious dining experience, but she will match each course with the perfect wine. Not only are you getting a taste of Paris, you will learn why she has chosen each wine especially for you and your choices. I drop everything and immediately say "yes" when I get an invitation from Camilla. If she is opening her home to you, it is to welcome you and give you an evening to remember. She does nothing half way and is a wonderful hostess. Thing that is the most appealing about this experience is that you truly feel special.
Camilla cooks almost better than my French mother and no one else got to that level before I tried Camilla's dishes. As for the wines... Well, I fall for the Haut-Médoc, and the Riesling. Cheers. V
