French lessons & Cooking lessons

My French Course teaches you how to speak, cook and bake like the French at a French cooking school in a Parisian luxury hotel.

An original programme to learn the French language and top chef cooking tips.

There are various packages to suit your needs, whether you prefer sweet or savoury, have never boiled an egg, are a decent amateur cook or are even training to be a chef already.

                                                                                   

You may choose group or one-on-one lessons according to your needs.

We recommend first learning to speak then learning to cook.
