I’ve received a number of questions about cooking classes in Paris recently.

If you’re coming to Paris and would like information about cooking classes, whether you’re looking for professional or classes geared towards the home cook, you’ll find a comprehensive list that I put together at: Paris Cooking Classes

You can use the links provided to find out which are taught in English and/or French, as well as their schedule.

Bon Appétit!

      On a note unrelated to Parisian cooking classes, I wanted to drop you a line praising your Oatmeal Raisin Ice Cream recipe in The Perfect Scoop! My favorite batch so far–simply to die for, even with my substituted dark rum and non-fat milk (what was on hand, but the batch still turned out wickedly creamy, and not a bit icey). I think I’ve finally got the custard part down, and now I’m even more excited to hit the book up again… even in New York’s mid-40s November weather! Thanks!

      About me: I live in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.
      Retired and traveling by myself-on a budget! I have been to Paris twice before on very short trips.
      I am making arrangements to stay in Paris for a month.
      I am still flexible on dates at the present time. I am coming just for fun. I would like to take cooking and art classes. How can I best use my time?

      Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions

      Hi Barbara: If you’re coming for a month, I would say to take a food-related tour during your first week. That way, you can see the markets and figure out what you want to do. A good guide will help you understand the way food shopping is done in France as well as give you suggestions where to shop.

      If you’re on a budget, don’t forget to explore the less-touristed parts of Paris, which include the 10th, 11th, and 20th arrondissements. The Left Bank hot-spots are expensive and there are plenty of place to see (and things to eat) outside of that area.

      Less-touristed neighborhoods are cheaper and sometimes more interesting. You can use the search engine on the site to find places, but a few suggestions are: Le Verre Volé, boulangerie 140, Vandermeersch, Pain et des Idees, Gouyanmat, and check out my posts Five great places that you might not know about in Paris for more tips.
