    Madeleine Bullwinkel

    and of course my collaborators at Paris By Mouth Meg Zimbeck, Phyllis Flick et al http://parisbymouth.com/new-tour-the-...

      I don't think Betty Rosbottom is in Paris, though... She's a wonderful teacher.

      I have taken my adult children three different times to a Cookin With Class course and they all enjoyed it, particularly the morning session which includes a tour through the markets at the Poteau/Ordener area which is the market area for that side of Montmartre. You are given an explanation of the different cheeses, meats, etc., then walk back to the kitchen/studio and prepare a meal from the fresh ingredients.
