I had a family of five - from 14 to 80 - on this trip. I thought I would surprise them with something unique, something more than just the tourist attractions. This was so worth it. Benedicte was charming, a great cook, and a great teacher. She was incredibly patient with us - both our cooking as well as some of the questions she got asked by elderly Americans! :) She couldn't have handled us with more care. She brought us to the local market to buy ingredients, explained why she chooses what she does, coached us on the cooking techniques and then we sat down to an amazing meal and a great glass of wine or three. HIGHLY recommend.

In the space of about three hours we became near experts at macarons and chocolate soufflé thanks to the excellent guidance of Benedicte. Benedicte made us feel very welcome in her lovely flat. After a friendly chat over a gorgeous brioche and juice, the four of us were divided into two teams. Macarons were first on the menu, and Benedicte guided us through her family recipe, giving friendly advice all the way. We made two types - lemon and raspberry, and made the fillings too. Benedicte taught us a really fail safe way of doing macarons and we got all the tips we need to succeed at home. Afterwards we made a chocolate soufflé which rose like goodness knows what. And then finished it all off by making a caramel sauce from scratch. We then got to taste all of our creations over a pot of tea and/or champagne!! It was great chatting to Benedicte, swapping food stories while sampling our baking. We will undoubtedly make the recipes again and again at home, making the whole Parisian Kitchen experience into a truly treasured memory. We cannot recommend this enough. It suits everyone: beginners to foodies.

This was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! I surprised my young daughter with a macaron/ chocolate souffle baking class for her 9th birthday. Benedicte was very accomodating in allowing and working with children. We were joined by two sweet girls from New Zealand, and had a great time! Benedicte was very efficient and organized, and made baking these tricky masterpieces seem easy! Our creations tasted just as good, if not better than what you buy in the bakeries. I would highly recommend this class!

Our cooking lesson was beyond our expectations! The whole process from going to the market to making the lunch menu was a lot of fun and very informative. Bénédicte is a wonderful teacher who has a lot of great tips that were very helpful. The cooking class was a definite highlight of our trip! Thank you Bénédicte for making us feel so comfortable and welcome in your home!
