Votre prochain cours de cuisine à Paris est ici !

Paris, capitale gastronomique du monde, offre pléthore de cours de cuisine aux voyageurs, chacun cooking class paris proposant une expertise ou des connaissances particulières à ceux qui souhaitent apprendre ou se perfectionner dans le domaine culinaire.  Mais si n’importe quel cours vous apprend facilement les bases de la cuisine, votre capacité à saisir les concepts plus évolués dépend vraiment de la méthode d’apprentissage. De nombreux cours ont lieu dans l’atelier d’un chef, sous la supervision d’un expert culinaire aux méthodes assez strictes. Vous serez sans doute plus observateur que participant dans ce cas, et la rigidité du système de cuisine française peut se réveler un peu stressante pour les néophytes et peut vous laisser l’impression que vous ne serez jamais capable de reproduire chez vous tout ce qu’on vous a montré.

cooking class paris C’est là que Perrine intervient. Sa passion pour la cuisine l’a conduite à prendre elle-même des cours dans des ateliers aussi prestigieux que Le Cordon Bleu ou l’Atelier Ducasse, deux institutions spécialisées dans la cuisine française. Elle a même fait une apparition dans une émission de télévision aux côtés de Christophe Michalak, champion du monde de pâtisserie, et de Jonathan Blot, le “magicien des macarons”.

Contrairement à d’autres classes, les cours de Perrine se déroulent à son domicile. Elle invite ainsi les participants à partager sa propre cuisine, dans un contexte informel et très détendu, où le mot de “participant” prend tout son sens : chacun met la main à la pâte et prépare lui-même le repas qui sera partagé ensuite, sous la supervision bienveillante de Perrine. Et bonne nouvelle : bien que vous prépariez de la vraie cuisine française, les recettes de Perrine ne contiennent jamais d’ingrédient impossible à trouver facilement et ne mettent pas en oeuvre de technique impossible à reproduire chez soi. Le but est vraiment que chacun puisse facilement cuisiner son repas seul afin de pouvoir reproduire la même chose aisément une fois de retour à la maison.

Au-delà du cours de cuisine traditionnel, Perrine propose aussi un Atelier Tout Autour du Fromage, qui a lieu dans une boutique spécialisée réputée où vous découvrirez non seulement le procédé de vieillissement du fromage mais aussi la façon d’accorder correctement vos vins et vos fromages ; également, un Atelier de 2 heures de Pâtisserie (les enfants adorent !) ou encore un Atelier de 3 heures Tout Macarons  pour ceux qui souhaitent un peu plus de challenge…

Autre caractéristique des cours de Perrine : la possibilité de profiter d’un tour au marché avec elle avant votre cours de cuisine. Perrine vous emmène ainsi déambuler dans les allées d’un marché parisien traditionnel où vous apprendrez comment sélectionner vos produits frais et de saison pour préparer le ou les plats que vous cuisinerez ensuite. Grâce à cette étape, vous faites l’expérience de la gastronomie française dans son ensemble, et pas uniquement de l’aspect cuisine pur. Les visites au marché peuvent être ajoutées à la plupart des ateliers de cuisine, à condition de vous y prendre à l’avance, dans la mesure où les marchés parisiens ne sont pas ouverts tous les jours de la semaine.

cooking class paris La personnalité charmante et enjouée de Perrine, son accueil chaleureux et la variété des ateliers qu’elle propose, tout cela réunit vous permettra de vivre une expérience culinaire inédite, dont vous garderez le souvenir longtemps après votre retour à la mason.

Pour qui:  Tout le monde !
Combien: à partir de 110 € / personne 
Durée: de 2 à 4 heures, en fonction de l’atelier. 
A noter : pour les visites de marchés, pensez à vous y prendre à l’avance pour être sûr de trouver une date où les marchés sont ouverts.
