While in Paris during the winter months, why not indulge in an exciting opportunity to spend a morning learning how to cook a succulent Christmas meal, "French style", under the expert guidance of our highly respected French chef, Chef Dominique. You'll also get a chance to tour a traditional outdoor market, where you'll pick up ingredients for your future feast.

What to expect

Enjoy Chef Dominique's creative festive recipes that combine healthy, local fresh seasonal ingredients from the market while introducing you to dishes that are part of France's rich culinary heritage. Chef Dominique's menu is perfect for you to reproduce back home as a Christmas Eve dinner or a Christmas Day lunch. The menu combines poultry and seafood, seasonal mushrooms and vegetables as well as showing you how to create the stunning Yule log - Bûche de Noël -. recreate this impressive dessert for your own family' Christmas table.

The meal is prepared and cooked in Chef Dominique's own kitchen and limiting numbers to 8 allows for a real hands-on practical cooking class. In the company of our Chef, you go to a Parisian outdoor market to choose the fresh products that will be used in that day's recipes.
