Cooking with Myriam
, Jan 2022
We had a great time with Myriam. We weren’t sure what to expect when we saw we were to meet at the chef’s apartment. Myriam met us outside and escorted us inside to her condo. It was small and intimate, very nicely decorated and clean. She has a wonderful sprawling view of the city. She walked us through preparing a Basque dish called Axoa. We substituted chicken for veal. We also made a tomato tort. For dessert we prepared and baked madeleines. She served us wine and was enjoyable to talk with while preparing food. Myriam was very kind, patient and an excellent teacher. The only thing I would suggest to be different would be a little mood music to cook to, something along the lines of Sympathique by Pink Martini would be perfect. Otherwise, it was a perfect date night in the City of Lights. Highly recommended if you are able to secure a spot with Myriam! .
Good times!

Great learning easy tricks for great food

It was a great experience, the market was fun to bebop around in. Myrian had some great insight into some of the Bask Country and other French food histories that we discussed. The cooking portion was the perfect amount of learning and ease. We certainly would be able to recreate these at a later date but the flavor was fantastic.

Myriam was absolutely fantastic, friendly, and knowledgeable. The experience was one all should do. Her knowledge and integration of history into the night made out all the more wonderful. We hope to see her again

Desserts won! But appetizer and entre were very good.
, Nov 2021
We enjoyed Myriam’s company and her cooking expertise. Our appetizer , entre and desserts (especially )were super yummy! I’m hoping Miriam will forward the recipes soon. We expected at least one other couple if not more to make the experience more fun. We have taken many cooking classes in both Italy and France with at least 2 other couples for a more enjoyable evening. I would not take a class by ourselves again even though I do like my husband!

DO IT!!!! Reading this review? Then stop procrastinating and book it.

This was a FANTASTIC experience. My wife and I have taken several cooking classes over the years, but often it’s been challenging to replicate some elements as the classes used professional/commercial grade equipment or techniques you wouldn’t typically find in your home kitchen. That’s what makes Fred and his class so special as he has also been teaching individuals for a long time in addition to running a professional kitchen. You are cooking together in a typical apartment with tools and Ingredients you can find in any residential kitchen. The location is also incredibly easy to get to via the Metro. Literally steps away from the exit of a metro stop. Having such access to a long time professional chef who can translate from the commercial kitchen to cooking at home was magical. Fred was not only a master at his craft, but also just a lot of fun to chat with. Whether you are new to cooking or experienced, Fred can adjust to your comfort level. It’s a guaranteed great time and we would love to repeat next time we are in Paris.

A Lunch to remember
, Oct 2021
We enjoyed going to the open market and learning how to shop for the best fruits and vegetables and plan a meal according to what was in season. Fred was very professional and taught us helpful knife skills as well as how to create an easy affordable elegant French meal at home. Definitely will work with him again.
