Myriam, our personal chef contacted us to meet her outside her apartment. She then whisked us away on a bus (make sure you bring extra metro tickets for this round trip bus trip) to her favorite Wednesday/Saturday fresh air market to pick the fresh ingredients for our three course meal. Back in her apartment she had things prepared for us to learn cooking skills. She was very engaging and was aware of the eagerness of my granddaughters to help and she kept their attention. The meal was delicious and she was delightful with great English. She’s been a chef for over 30 years and it was great fun to cook with her and be her guests in her apartment (on the 23rd floor)!

Chef Marthe was a wonderful host. Going to her local market where she knew the vendors was so special. We got to sample some specials like fresh cherries and cheese. She had some very useful cooking tips that we’ll definitely use at home and eating the meal we all helped prepare was delicious!

A fabulous morning shopping, preparing, and eating a delicious lunch. Marthe was so pleasant and a gifted chef. I learned so much watching her preparations and following instructions so I can duplicate the process at home. A well spent 4 plus hours!

What a great experience! We Strolled through the street market to select our ingredients, then off to our host’s flat to cook the meal, step-by-step. We were blessed because our fellow students were both fun, and a pleasure to meet.

We loved the experience! From taking the Metro to the outdoor market to assisting Fred with our meal and then of course eating it, we learned so much. Simple but fresh ingredients made all the difference. Our teacher Frederic was kind and helpful. He also gave us great tips! Thank Fred!
