La Cuisine Paris is a cooking school in the centre of Paris offering hands-on cooking classes and food tours in English. Our school is located in the heart of Paris just minutes away from Notre Dame, the Marais, and the famous Hotel de Ville.

Our classes are taught in a warm and friendly environment and are small and hands-on - we like everyone to get stuck in! Join us to learn to make beautiful macarons or buttery croissants, or to learn how to use seasonal products inspired by a French Market visit. Or spend time with us outside of the kitchen and indulge your taste buds on a food tour, from our fromage and wine workshop, to our sweet Pastry and Chocolate tour, to our historical tour of the Kings kitchen garden in Versailles, there is something for everyone.

Come and join us to learn some tips and secrets so that you can recreate French cuisine in your home kitchen!

Good option for an introduction to french cooking and baking. The best is they do offer very traditional products options very often so it is easy to get a spot. I took two workshops (Croissants and French Baguettes). I really appreciate I arrived only one hour before one of them (Baguettes) and they allowed me to participe even I didn't... More

I was in Paris for a few days with two friends. We did the jus class with Lise and the baguette class with Eric. Both were very much highlights during the trip! We did five sauces during the jus class with Lise and it was a ton of fun! Got to sample all the sauces at the end and now... More

The macaron class was fun, informative and delicious! Guillaume is clearly a pro but was able to break things down for less experienced cooks so that we all left with beautiful and delicious macarons. We learned both the French and Italian techniques along with 4 fillings. I haven't tried them yet at home - but I am confident that they... More

I had a wonderful time learning how to make Macaroons- with techniques for both the French and Italian meringue. The class was a huge amount of fun, we got to make different fillings in pairs, and then the different styles of meringues. Alongside learning how to make meringues there were a host of other practical skills which I've taken back... More

Eric is wonderful. Our market tour, although it was a cold and rainy day; he took a lot of time going over all of the different veggies, meats and fish. I appreciated everything he had to say.

This was the second time that I took a class at La Cuisine Paris and I cannot say enough good things about the experience and the meal that we created. 10 virtual strangers meet on a street corner in Paris, go to the market together and 3 hours later sit down to a lovely three course meal together.

Everyone who works here is so welcoming and friendly. The chefs offer so much information in an easy to understand manner. In my last two long visits to Paris, I have taken probably more than 10 classes at La Cuisine - Definitely worth it - Do It!

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
