It was very expensive for what we got. Children should not pay the same amount as adults. I also completed a dietary requirement section when booking explaining that we do not prefer cheese. The chef had us add 2 types of cheese in our appetizer. When asked if we can omit the Parmesan, she became annoyed and refused to omit it. Proceeded to tell me that if i taste the cheese in the final product that she won’t believe me (implying that the amount of cheese was not significant enough to taste). All in all, it was way too expensive for the experience and wasn’t what we had hoped for.

Shopping with Myriam was so educational. A true Paris experience. We loved being in a Paris apartment to cook Myriam is so knowledgeable about the source of the food and preparation. We would love to come back and cook in a different season!

Fabulous personalized experience. Chef Marthe was wonderfully warm and knowledgeable. We prepared and enjoyed an amazing lunch. The other 6 guests were charming and well- travelled. An authentic French experience!

Myriam was an excellent teacher and very accommodating to our group, that was larger than usual. Her apartment was clean and neat, and provided a beautiful view of Paris. Everyone got a chance to participate in cooking, to whatever degree they desired. Her menu was well-tailored for the heat, to avoid using the oven and was very delicious. The zucchini and strawberry salad was probably the best thing I ate in my entire week in Paris and is a dish I want to recreate at home.

The walk through the market with Myriam was a terrific cultural experience. Myriam shared knowledge and attitude regarding the various offerings. Cooking and eating in her apartment home added a real touch of Paris to the experience. Worth the time and the price.
