After a morning coffee, we will visit an authentic and quality Paris market that is not full of tourists. I will introduce you to the local artisans I have known for 15 years. You'll be able to taste an array of cheese, French delicatessen items, oysters, and more. Remember to bring your camera. We will be in Paris but the surroundings are like a village, with plenty of little houses and no cars allowed on the streets. I live less than a five-minute walk from the market. We'll return to my kitchen where you'll learn to cook lunch with the products that we bought, and I will share my tips and recipes with you. The plan will be to professionally cook and taste French dishes, such as Soufflés, Chicken Bourguignon, Cod in Oven, cr^pes (for fun!) and Season Vegetables . If the sun is with us, we can have lunch outside in my little garden. We'll have a wonderful time, and you'll be able to experience my life as a passionate gourmet in a very cool and, at the same time, warm environment. .
Main course and dessert I'll provide the ingredients for our lunch, prepared my way . We can make main+dessert or…
I was a TV reporter and producer, and then I underwent a total retraining in cooking. I graduated as a chef from the École Grégoire-Ferrandi, one of the leading professional training schools in gastronomy in France. I worked in restaurants, but I missed the contact with people. I invite you to share my life as a passionate cook.
We'll be in the district known as "Quartier de la Mouzaia," a charming residential neighborhood where more than 200 houses were built over a century ago. Nearby is the Buttes Chaumont, one of the biggest Paris parks. The market we'll visit is very big, with more than 100 food shops, and my house is a place where you'll feel far away from it all.
The Botzaris Metro Station is just 15 minutes from the center of Paris. Bring your camera. If you want, you can buy some food to take back home, as many of the shops can pack products under vacuum.
