We had a great trip to Paris. Beautiful weather, great experience overall. We had a great time with Chef Dominique. I planned a day cooking class with market shopping for my friend and our mothers. The Chef was very kind and pleasant. Walking through the market was fun and informative to experience with a local and professional. We cannot say enough about our experience. Many thanks to Chef Dominique for his kindness, expertise and hospitality.

During my market visit and hands-on cooking class, I learned that Chef Dominique is definitely a foodie at heart. He knows all the good places to get the best food.  He showed me how to tackle the markets in France and how to get certain techniques down to make me a better cook. In the class, we learned about different foods and what to cook seasonally based on what was available. We got to learn about how cooking was in his blood from a grandfather who was a chef in the Alsace region.  Chef Dominique showed me a new side of Paris. If you're truly interested in learning a couple new dishes, talking food, and finding out something new about the Paris food scene then this is a class you would probably enjoy. Tyler H., IL

It was a great experience. The chef was very knowledgeable and very nice. The class was a bit basic for my skill set. Wish I could have chosen which skill level I was and what I was looking for in a class. Peggy B., MN

I enjoyed visiting the chef's apartment and meeting his family. It's very interesting not only to see their local market but also to experience Parisian daily life. Robert H., SD

The cooking class with Dominique was great. We made three different desserts, each more delicious than the last. Dominique was able to strike the perfect balance between instruction and letting us practice. His home was welcoming and he started the class off with coffee and conversation. It was absolutely perfect from start to finish. [Regarding the cooking class voucher:] Perfect amount of information. [Regarding The International Kitchen staff:] Yes, we had all of the details post confirmation and prior to the class. The only catch was we were required to confirm 48 hours before the class and we were on a plane at that time. It ended up working out though! Maggie & Joni B., NY

Great experience and Chef Dominique was very instructive. Picked up helpful hints and can't wait to receive the recipes for the desserts that we made. The TIK staff in Chicago was extremely helpful as this was a last minute item on my "to do" list while I was in Paris. Patricia, NY
