Next we'll walk over to the Left Bank of the Seine and into the Latin Quarter or Saint Germain de Prés. We'll enjoy an included lunch at local restaurant and then you are free to explore this quaint area with all of its shops or take a Metro back to the hotel or perhaps head back over the river to stroll down the Champs Elysees for some shopping, or take a leisurely stroll into the Jardin de Tuileries.

We'll be in a private kitchen and begin our Cooking Class, where you'll learn some French secrets to delicious meals. After preparing the food, we'll enjoy the fruits of our labor together with a delicious lunch!

In France, a meal is a social event and never rushed, therefore this will take up MOST of the day. The late afternoon is a great time to stroll through Luxembourg Gardens or visit the Pantheon or perhaps do some shopping on Rue Mouffetard, all within walking distance of our chef's kitchen.
