You’ll begin by following Alisa to one of Paris’s best local marchés (fresh food markets and farmer’s markets) as she shares her passion and knowledge of French Culture. Our culinary experience starts where locals do their shopping; we’ll tour the stalls, meet the merchants, discover seasonal products, and learn the whys and hows of traditional French cooking and culinary habits.
Along the way, we’ll hunt and gather and fill our baskets with everything needed for our meal… the best seasonal fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, and breads, then head back to Alisa’s Parisian home to prepare a very French, 5-course lunch or dinner with specially chosen wines… A delicious time will be had by all.
You’ll learn recipes, techniques, helpful tips and tricks, and then sit down to enjoy the traditional creations that you’ve prepared. A sample menu may include, a Mushroom Souffle Starter, Crispy Duck with Seasonal Vegetables for the Main Course, Salad with Alisa’s French Father-In-Law’s Vinaigrette, Gateau Chocolat, Cheese….
