La Cuisine Paris is a cooking school in the centre of Paris offering hands-on cooking classes and food tours in English. Our school is located in the heart of Paris just minutes away from Notre Dame, the Marais, and the famous Hotel de Ville.

Our classes are taught in a warm and friendly environment and are small and hands-on - we like everyone to get stuck in! Join us to learn to make beautiful macarons or buttery croissants, or to learn how to use seasonal products inspired by a French Market visit. Or spend time with us outside of the kitchen and indulge your taste buds on a food tour, from our fromage and wine workshop, to our sweet Pastry and Chocolate tour, to our historical tour of the Kings kitchen garden in Versailles, there is something for everyone.

Come and join us to learn some tips and secrets so that you can recreate French cuisine in your home kitchen!

I can't stress enough how much I loved the Marché cooking class with Chef Lise. I have been going to classes in Paris for 20 years and I found the experience at La Cuisine to be in my top 5.

We enjoyed our first cooking class at La Cuisine so much, we booked two more! Favourite of the three classes was the Marche Maubert, with Cyril our chef, leading us through the market sharing his knowledge and love for food. Menu choices were influenced by the best produce available. A short walk past Notre Dame and we are back at... More

Did the Macaroon cooking class and it was amazing. I learnt how to make perfect Macaroons and fillings which tasted sooo good. It was a small class so we all got plenty of attention and the 3 hours just flew by. Our instructor was very friendly, knowledgeable and a lot of fun Would recommend this class to anyone interested.

Took the market class where you meet your group at the market and jointly decide on the menu. Then you go to the school and spend the morning cooking together.

This was my second visit to La Cuisine Paris in two years and each time was a pleasurable learning experience with memorable multi-course feast at the end.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
