Cooking in Paris!



Join me for intimate hands-on cooking classes in Paris, where we will cook together in a gorgeous, contemporary kitchen in the lovely 7th arrondissement, with seasonal produce fresh from the market.

For morning classes, we will begin at 10:30 a.m. with tastings, then will launch right into a hands-on, technique-oriented cooking class that will lead to our mid-day meal. Evening meals begin with a tasting and demonstration, and lead to a lovely, candlelight supper. Each class focuses on technique, tradition, tips and tricks; all ingredients are local and seasonal,and wines are carefully chosen to go with the dishes. In one class, you’ll take a culinary tour of France – it will be unforgettable!

Country Lunch


We know many of you would love to get out into the French countryside, but may not have the time to take a cooking class. To satisfy your desire, I developed Lunch in the Country, a wonderful, languorous meal cooked by and enjoyed with me in my timbered dining room.
You will arrive here either by train, rental car, or taxi and I will greet you with a home made apéritif , some enticing amuses-bouche, and a tour of our garden, if the weather is fine. Otherwise, we will sit in the kitchen enjoying our aperitif, then take a quick tour of our 12th century wine cellar. We will come back upstairs where I will put finishing touches on the lunch I’ve prepared for you, before we all sit down together in the dining room to enjoy it.

The menus for lunches are never the same, for they change with the season and they depend entirely on my own sense of creativity and delight in what I have found that day at the market.
