Experience a local open-air market like a true Parisian! Enjoy a visit through the market followed by a cooking class and lunch
MARKET TOUR – 1H
10am: Meet at the Café Antoine (17 rue Jean de la Fontaine, 75016 Paris) a typical Art Nouveau café decorated by Hector Guimard, the famous architect known for designing the Parisian subway entrance. Enjoy a coffee or tea with your host, Geraldine.
Tour the local open-air market to see a wide array of food, where French people shop for the freshest of products from local producers. All of the ingredients will be purchased at the market for your cooking class followed by lunch.
COOKING CLASS – 1H30
From the market, take a 10mn stroll to Geraldine’s apartment, located in a 19th century building in the heart of the 16th. Geraldine will lead you through the preparation of a traditional lunch comprised of a starter, entrée (main course) and dessert. Kids and teenagers especially enjoy preparing the sweet course!
Sample menu : fresh salmon verrine, cheese soufflé and apricot clafoutis
LUNCH – 1H30
Set a traditional French table and enjoy an aperitif (pre-meal drink), such as a French sparkling wine, accompanied by Gougères (savory pastry) while your lunch slowly cooks in the oven. Your host, a certified wine expert, will choose a bottle of wine to accompany your lunch and teach you the basics of wine tasting.
Great wine & food experience! (from TripAdvisor)
“I searched for quite a while for a good wine tasting my friends and I would enjoy since were only in Paris for a day, so our schedule was tight. When I contacted Geraldine she was very nice, helpful, and quick to respond! From there the experience only got better. The Tour Market & Cooking class & Wine tasting was excellent. Geraldine was very knowledgeable about it all and open to our thoughts as novice wine drinkers. Upon leaving, she graciously helped us order an Uber. This was one of the best traveling experiences I’ve ever had :)” Jade, 27, San Francisco
