This was excellent father-daughter experience. The chef was very knowledgable, personable, and had a great sense of humor. He interacted with my 12-year-old just as well as he did with the adults in our small class. He spoke fluent English, and even e-mailed us his recipes for

I have never rated anytjing on Trip Advisor, but I chose to in the case because this class is way too expensive and we didn’t learn anything. It is a complete waste of time. Our group was 2 adults and a 14 yo girl, and although our host was very friendly, he basically taught us

Hello Amy S, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and share your thoughts about the class with us; and our apologies for only being able to get back to you now. We're sorry to hear that you feel that your cooking class fell short of expectations, and that you were dissatisfied with your experience. The class is adapted for all levels of experience; it seems from your review that you were expecting something that was more adapted to experienced bakers rather than beginners, and for this we apologize; should you participate in another cooking class, don't hesitate to inform the instructor of any previous experience and skill. As for the fact that that you only just watched, this may come from a cultural difference; in France, instructors typically do not invite students to participate for fear of putting them "on the spot," and those who wish to get involved are encouraged to state so and come forward with the desire to participate even more. Our goal in providing these classes is to bridge gaps across different cultures, and it seems that this didn't occur during your class. You stated that you should get a refund but that it will "never happen"; but we never received a refund request from you after your class. If you would like to discuss this experience further with us, feel free to write to us at contact@meetingthefrench.com.

Took this class with my teenage niece. Frederic was our chef. Easy to get to his apartment. He was very patient with us. All three desserts were wonderful. We did not get the recipes but have reached out to Viator hoping they can get us in touch with the chef. Would love to be

Hi martha4070, Thank you for your review! We're so glad you enjoyed the class. If you still haven't received the recipes from Chef Frédéric, please let us know at contact@meetingthefrench.com and we will have them resent; it is possible they ended up in spam or junk by accident.

Great class, step by step instructions and efficient for the two hours. He was very nice when asked about short cuts he used and advice about ingredients. Made sure all the teens were involved. Also good variety of desserts.
