    Easy to navigate to the location. The trip to the market was a great start. No preset menu. After the initial walk through the incredible outdoor market we discussed what folks wanted to make. With the scallop season just starting, that provided an excellent entree inspiration. Was a fun group of 5 attendees and Fred was great at accommodating different people's tastes/avoidance foods. The kitchen was roomy and impeccable. Fred's instructions and demonstrations made the lesson great and easy to recreate with the recipes sent after the class. Would recommend this experience to anyone spending time in Paris.

    Our chef Miriam is very knowledgeable and used to own a restaurant and so she is legit! Loved the shopping at the market experience with a local chef who knows when a specific produce is in season.. I wish that there are a couple more recipe for clients to choose from in case we have in mind certain dishes we would like to learn. All in all it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience..

    Chef Fred was lovely....we went to a wonderful market (an everyday occurrence for him - a novelty for me). When we came back he began to perform his magic in the kitchen. He loves to experiment with different flavours and made me think I could move away from the recipe a little more. I got some great ideas. I would highly recommend.
