We came to Paris with the kids for the first time, and wanted a different adventure than the touristy sight seeing experience. Our kids were 8 and excited to taste Paris in all its flavors - especially Parisian home cooking. Perrine helped give us this fun foodie time as a family. She met us in the morning, she went over some menu choices based on our preferences and what we wanted to learn to cook. She took us to buy some local ingredients and the local outdoor market, and took us to her home for hours of cooking and tasting! On the way to her home, she caught on to how much our kids loved French cheese and bread, and so she took us to her favorite cheese/egg local neighborhood shop, and on her own volition, bought some of her favorite cheeses along with French cheesecake. This cheese and cheesecake was the perfect complement intertwined with our cooking lessons! Our menu was tomato pie, which I have already done once back home in the States, cod with white cream/shallot sauce, pureed carrot egg baked loaf, and apricot pie. Our family loved learning about French cooking with Perrine, and cooking with her with a view of the Eiffel Tower; it was a perfect activity for a non-touristy day! I should also mention for families out there, that she is incredibly patient and kid-friendly, and makes the cooking fun and easy-going with the kids! Our only suggestion is to reach out to Perrine in the days before to see what the menu options will be, so that you have ample time to think through what it is you want to learn and what you want to make. This way, you don't have to make an "on the spot" decision without much time.

Before you picnic under the Eiffel Tower, and get lost in the the streets of Le Marais, your first Parisian experience should be spent with Perrine!
We had a lovely day with this exceptional chef. A guided tour, with a side of grocery shopping through her local market was inspiring - produce to bring back to her beautiful home ( with an Eiffel Tower view), to prepare a three course meal!
The best meal I've had pretty much - ever!
We have traveled the globe, and I can pretty much call it a day now.

Spending a day with Perrine was the best decision my husband and I made when planning a quick three days in Paris. From our first email exchange, it was clear that Perrine would provide a wonderful professional experience that would be wrapped in the warmth of her personal charm and enthusiasm. I'm a very competent cook but I still learned much during our time together - about cooking and about the culture and everyday life of a Parisienne. My husband and I visit markets wherever we travel but doing it with Perrine provided a local perspective that we wouldn't have by ourselves. Thank you Perrine!

We too had a wonderful time with Perrine. She helped us pick a menu we would enjoy. We shopped at great places for the ingredients. Perrine taught us the techniques necessary to cook the dishes. We then ate together and enjoyed the meal. Perrine was very nice, friendly and knowledgeable. We had a great time and would highly recommend A World In A Pan.
