cooking classes in Paris


Looking for some help finding a cooking class in Paris. I know this has been discussed before and I have read with interest previous threads but I am still undecided.

Some background on me: I would describe myself as a reasonably accomplished home cook who can pull off some amazing dishes but, being self taught, I am occassionally unaware of some rather basic techniques too.

So on my trip to Paris I thought it would be fun to take a 1 day or half day cooking class but budget is an issue. One place I have come cross is Marguerite's Elegant Home Cooking which charges 110 Euro for a class that run 9am until 2pm. I am wondering if other's have tried it and what they thought. As well, do people know of other schools in a similar budget range?

  1. I took a class with Rosabelle. She has a course called Cooking with the Countess. I think it is only bookable from here

    and she works on a lot of the basics and you can choose what you want to make. She does it at home so it was very relaxed.

    1. I was looking at taking a class from Atelier des Chefs a little while ago. All classes are one-day, but vary depending on the number of dishes being produced. Plus you get to eat afterwards, of course. But what got me interested was that the prices were really reasonable.

          1. Have a look at the thread below titled Cook'n With Class. Really a wonderful experience. I'm sure that Eric would cater to your specific needs...he is great and I can't recommend the class enough.
