Alisa welcomes you into her Parisian home and teaches you how to cook French food with detailed, hands-on instruction. While guiding you through the recipes she'll also share French culinary facts, current customs, and helpful tips. Each class ends with everyone gathering around her large dining table, enjoying the meal you’ve made accompanied by specially selected wines. All classes and tours are for small groups of no more than 6 people and are offered in English, or French upon request.
"I was thrilled to share my love of food and years of experience with my American friends!"
Alisa Morov is a seasoned chef and cookbook writer, who will reveal the exceptional world of French food and tradition allowing visitors to be a French chef for the day.
"My mother is a wonderful cook, she entertained often, cooked all the time… for us, extended family and friends. I hung around watching, helping, learning, breaking eggs. I was comfortable and happy in the kitchen by the age of 12, and by 18, I was happiest when cooking, baking, and entertaining for my friends."
Growing up in Los Angeles, through university, art school and working life, she cooked, catered, read about cooking, experimented, invented, learned, and cooked some more. Marrying a Frenchman opened up the private door to French culture for her, and then in 2002 she moved to Paris.
French friends were curious about American food and culture while visiting Americans wanted to know about the culture and food of France.
"I was thrilled to share my love of food and years of experience with them. My daughters craved things they missed: Savory things like Mexican food, fusion salads and savory pies – Sweet things like cakes, pies, cookies, cheesecake, brownies, scones… We tried the offerings available in Paris and found them… well… something was just missing."
And so her quest began, searching for the right ingredients, learning which French flours corresponded to each of her recipes, adjusting for the fabulously rich French butter, and making the very best possible food she could ever imagine.
