Meet your private, experienced chef and get ready to prepare (and eat) a delicious traditional child-friendly French meal.

During this 2.5-hour hands-on cooking class, your family will get to learn and cook traditional French recipes. Follow the chef’s instructions and you see how cooking a healthy, mouth-watering meal is not that hard! Using only the freshest and healthiest seasonal ingredients, you will make a starter, a main course and a desert. You will also learn about how to present the food to make it as pleasing to the eye than it is to the mouth.

The hands-on part is followed by a meal, and your dishes are on the menu. During the last 40 minutes of the cooking class, just sit down, relax, and enjoy the great tasting dishes you prepared, accompanied by a glass of wine for adults and juices for kids.

Is this a private activity?
It sure is. Your family members will be the only ones in the cooking school, along with your private chef (and assistant).
Do the parents participate?
Of course! Everyone will get their hands deliciously dirty. Teamwork makes a great meal. Depending on the age of the children, parents might be the only ones allowed to use knives or get close to the stove or oven.
How big is the meal?
The quantity of food prepared and served is equivalent to a healthy portion for adults. It is a 2-course meal, so you won’t feel hungry at the end.
Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?
Because this cooking class involves knives, fire, pots and pans, very young children are generally not allowed to participate in the cooking process.
Can you make gluten free meals / can you cope with food allergies or other intolerances?
We can adapt to any food allergy or intolerance as long as this information has been given to us prior to the day of the activity. If information is given during the cooking class, your chef will do their best to adapt to your needs and tastes.
Can you make kosher meals (or any other special meals)?
Yes we can. Here too, please give this information ahead of time so the adapted ingredients can be purchased.
Do we need to bring special material or ingredients?
No. All you need to bring is a big smile and the will to prepare a delicious meal. We’ll take care of the rest. Should the parents want to bring their own wine, please feel free to do so.
Do we get the recipes of what we prepared?
Of course, we will send you the recipes by email once the baking class is over.
Will my teenage kids like the activity?
Preparing a good meal is a quality that everyone should have. If they don’t like cooking, this might be a great way to get them to start liking it, as it is always a useful skill to have.
