You may whip up French classics like tarte Tatin (upside-down caramelized apple tart), delicate lemon madeleines (shell-shaped butter cookies) or molten fondant au chocolate. The day’s menu may also include or other sweet treats from around the globe, such as rum-roasted pineapples or another recipe favored by your host.

    Prepare to measure, mix, boil and bake under the watchful eye of your expert instructor. Learn professional tips for delicious results and chat about what it’s like to work as a professional chef in a city known worldwide for fantastic cuisine.
