Cooking classes in Paris during lunch time (you eat what you cooked)

Great place to eat what you prepared and for 15 euros!
Need a little french to understand the chef's directions. Booking is done only by internet, though you need to reserve in advance because it's becoming quite popular and courses close fast. Just checked their website and the have opened also in Bordeaux and Lyon.
Great experience and I loved it because you actually cook! They usually have good chefs as teachers. The price includes the ingredients.

  1. Thank you so much! I just researched hotels for my April trip and this cooking class sounds awesome!

    Do you have to be fluent in French, or just need a little?

    Anyone know of any other classes like this?

    1. It's better if you can understand a little french. If you don't it can be ok because you will be watching the chef doing it while he speaks. You can always bring a dictionary or prepare yourself a little list of french-english cooking words. Maybe you are lucky and the chef of the day speaks enough english. Or check before hand which chefs speak english before signing. You can always write and ask them directly.
