Join American expat chef and cook book author Alisa of Sweet Pea Paris, for an authentically Parisian experience.

You’ll start your adventure by following Alisa to one of Paris’s best marchés (fresh food markets), where you’ll tour the stalls, meet the merchants, discover local products, and learn all about traditional French cooking and culinary habits. All with the help of an English-speaker at your side!

Along the way, you’ll fill your panier with everything needed to prepare your meal… the best seasonal fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, and breads. Once your basket is full, you’ll head to an impeccably equipped kitchen in the 11th Arrondissement where you’ll prepare a five-course lunch or dinner with specially chosen wines. Très français, non?

With hands-on instruction, you’ll learn French recipes and cooking techniques along with helpful tips and tricks of the trade.

Then, it’s time to sit down and enjoy the traditional dishes you prepared. A sample menu includes, a mushroom soufflé starter, crispy duck with seasonal vegetables for the main course, salad dressed with Alisa’s French Father-In-Law’s vinaigrette, chocolate cake, and, of course, cheese!

Tour includes: grocery shopping at a local market, meal preparation, and a 5-course lunch or dinner with a selection of wines.

Meet Your Local Guide

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.
