Go and explore the food of France. Enjoy a cooking holiday in France. This experience is done in Paris and organized by the travel specialist Tematis. This is a new cooking/food holiday, 6 days and 5 nights, that can also be tailor made according to your requirements. The basic principle of this cooking holiday in Paris is that you will cook… And actually you will cook many times, at Alain Ducasse’s school, at Le Nôtre, the famous pastry maker, and with Olivier Berté, a specialty chef focusing on molecular cuisine and gastronomy.
Further more you will be initiated to wine with a tasting and sampling. And to relax, a lunch cruise on the Seine River is also to be expected.
