FRIDAY, JUNE 8 | 9:30 AM–1:30 PM | PRIVATE MARCHÉ MONGE COOKING CLASS

After the market, you will return to La Cuisine Paris to begin a hands-on cookery class in English. Use the fresh market products to prepare your gourmet meal. Throughout the class you will have the opportunity to learn knife skills, produce pairings and put these in to practice with a mélange of modern and traditional French recipes. After all that hard work, share your handcrafted meal with wine and your fellow classmates in our lovely dining room overlooking the Seine and Notre Dame!
