For anyone that’s had the Parisian dream of culinary school or photo classes realized by touristy group courses taught by awkward expats, Ecole de Cuisine is a real deal cooking school. Offering courses as short as an 8-hour day or multi-day studies, classes vary between chocolate and bread-making instruction to courses specifically on foie-gras or seafood. The space is composed of a central instruction area, dining room, garden and terrace with some classes venturing into local markets for local, fresh cuisine that inspires forthcoming instruction.
Upscale cooking school in the 16th led by 3-star Michelin chef Alain Ducasse offers instruction in English and French.
A variety of English and French instruction is offered, with English options being more limited to classes in Bistro cuisine, Macarons, dishes inspired by the dining room of the Plaza Athennee and French pastries.
