The first gourmet experience you generally have on arriving in Paris is having lunch or dinner in a bistrot, a traditional restaurant serving a simple flavorful cuisine prepared with seasonal produce.
Aside to your pleasure of eating, join us in the kitchen for cooking and sharing the secrets of our chefs.
Our “bistrot" cooking class is unique, featuring countryside regional recipes such as:
- meat stews (pot-au feu, bœuf bourguignon, bœuf carrots, navarin d'agneau, sauté de lapin…),
- hachis Parmentier (potatoes purée and ground beef gratin),
- mushrooms omelettes, etc.
As a starter, you find boiled eggs with mayonnaise, marinated herrings with steamed potatoes, caramelized shallots “Tatin " with goat cheese, fresh thyme and bay leaf.
Traditional desserts are clafoutis, fruits tarts, caramel cream, vanilla rice pudding, ile flottante (whipped egg whites with creme anglaise).
Bistrot-style menus can be prepared in advance, giving the chance to home-cooks, to stay at the table with guests.
Our cooking class is operated in our school located in Paris 17th.
