We signed up for a home cooking class because we wanted to take back what we learned. Emmanuelle was a great host because she answers your questions and gives you great advice. We had prepared and cooked stuffed tomatoes Provençal , rice pilaf and strawberry Sorbet. My 14 year old son was kept busy helping to prepare the meal which at the end was delicious. We also got to meet and talk to her teenage son which was cool. I was under the weather that day and she offered to to go to the pharmacy which was very kind of her . The home was very close to a train stop. Overall an excellent experience.
I enjoyed Home cooking with Dominique so much that I returned multiple times. The classes are in her beautiful home in a lovely part of Paris. Her classes are interactive and fun! The French dishes we prepared were achievable for even a novice. Eating our successful meal together with wine was always a memorable way to end the class.
I was lucky to learn about Isa and her business during the SIAL food show. My family was joining me for a week of vacation and a culinary class sounded like an excellent way to spend a day. Isa sent me several options and we ended up choosing to spend time in a French household learning to make Beef Bourguignon and Creme Brûlée.
Dominique, our hostess turned out to be a lovely lady, charming hostess and excellent teacher living in a beautiful Paris apartment. We spent the morning learning to make the classic French stew and dessert, then enjoyed it during a leisurely lunch with delicious wine at a beautifully set table.
It was truly an unforgettable day! Isa joined us for coffee at the end of the meal and we left feeling that we had made new friends.
I highly recommend Paris A Dream and look forward to our next adventure when we visit Paris again!
We had a fantastic time learning how to cook Creme Brûlée and Beef Bourguignon in Paris. Our cook and teacher was Dominique welcomed us to her home in the center of Paris. She was very friendly and full of cooking tips! Thanks so much.
Anne was a fantastic 'experience' host. Her generosity with time and genuine focus on ensuring we enjoyed the experience was great
We went with Paris A Dream to learn and experience the French style home cooking with chef Emmanuelle. It was wonderful - We liked the recipe very much & ended up shopping for the same spices while we were still in Paris so we can recreate the same dish at home! Highly recommended!
We had a great time cooking with Chef Dominique! Made a delicious meal of vegetable terrine, monkfish in tomato sauce, and tart tatin (menu customized for our group) while learning a ton about both cooking technique and French food. Dominique was a really lovely host and it was great to do a personal class for our group of four, all completely hands-on. Highly recommended !

Experience Paris like a local!
I did a "Belleville, Paris for locals" 3 hour walking tour with Isabelle in March 2018 and loved it.
Everyone should do this! Isabelle is friendly and welcoming and has taken the time to find places that make and provide high quality products in a friendly environment. by the end of the tour, I felt like we were good friends. not only do you get to discover delicious food and drink but you also get to see and learn about Belleville. Isabelle also gave me recommendations for things to do and see in all of Paris and the rest of my trip. She is very knowledgeable but also down to earth.
I highly recommend this tour.
Isa and her team made us feel like lifelong Parisians, introducing us to local experts and vendors who welcomed us into their shops as though we were old friends. We truly tasted the best that Paris has to offer, and learned so much along the way. It was a wonderful day, made all the better by Isabelle's delightful company! Highly recommended for all ages. Such a fun morning!
Isa and her team went out of their way to create a memorable experience for our group of four adults and two 12-year olds. It can be difficult to motivate jet-lagged youngsters to visit another museum or historical site!
We had a very friendly and knowledgeable bilingual guide who offered information on the history and significant buildings in the neighborhood as we walked to a beautiful bakery and an ice-cream shop with new and fascinating flavors. In both places we tasted delicious sweets, talked with the owners who were passionate about what they did, and even got to go into the kitchens to see how they create their desserts.
I think this was perhaps one of the most memorable experiences for the kids (and maybe the adults) -- to engage personally with French people and culture in a comfortable way!
My wife and I very much enjoyed our Paris A Dream food tour of the 11th arrondissement. All of the stops (a boulangerie, fromagerie, fine epicerie, and wine shop) were perfect – the food was great and it was so interesting to learn about each owner’s background and commitment to their chosen field. And we really loved the "picnic” approach to the tour – collecting food along the way for a small feast at the end. Our guide Camille did a great job – she was very personable and we enjoyed her comments about the neighborhood, the history, etc. All in all, it was a wonderful way to spend the day.
We've now lived in Paris for over a year, but had never truly discovered the Saint Germain des Pres neighborhood and all its wonderful local artisans until our tour with Isabelle and Paris a Dream. In all honesty, it was probably my favorite experience of exploring new neighborhoods in Paris so far, learning about different food artisans - can't wait until the next tour!
Having lived in Paris for many years, I was thrilled to discover I new neighborhood that I knew nothing about as well as some tastes and foods that were new to me too. This tour is a delightful mix of tasting, culture, Parisian charm, and tourism. I highly recommend this experience for anybody who wants to learn about food and Paris, even if they think they know it all. Our guide was wonderful, telling us all about what we were trying and where we were visiting. Although I knew we would be tasting some things, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that our 'tasting' was just about a multi-course lunch with 3 kinds of wine. Whether you know Paris a lot or a little, this is a fun experience for all. Note: if you have never been to Paris and are pressed for time, you might prefer one of their other tasting tours in a more famous district. If you have been to some of the popular neighborhoods or want to discover a new one, this tour is for you!
