Are you “hungry” for Paris? Come take a delicious insider culinary journey of Paris with Eye Prefer Paris Cooking Classes. Richard Nahem, owner of the now famous Eye Prefer Paris Tours, and professional chef and caterer Charlotte Puckette, author of the bestseller The Ethnic Paris Cookbook, will teach students how to make French food with an ethnic twist including flavors and accents from Vietnam, Morocco, Lebanon, Senegal, Tunisia, West Indies, and Cambodia. Classes will start at 9:30AM with a tour of a fresh food market, where we will shop for some of the seasonal and sometimes exotic ingredients.

After, we will go to Charlotte’s private townhouse with a professional kitchen on the ground floor, conveniently located in the upscale 7th arr., minutes from the Eiffel Tower. When we arrive we will discuss the menu over coffee and prepare a five-course feast that includes a cheese and salad course for the next few hours. We will finish with our delicious lunch we just prepared along with French wine from a local shop specially selected for the cuisine. Classes will end approximately 2PM. Course sizes are limited to between two and six guests, guaranteeing ample opportunity to ask questions and savor the experience of spending the day with two Parisian insiders.

Eye Prefer Paris Cooking Classes go beyond just cooking: Clients get the unique and unforgettable experience of shopping the food markets like a true Parisian and spending the day in a French home.
