If you prefer to enjoy your food without the labor, you might prefer a culinary journey with American expat Charlotte Puckette. Her kitchen alone is worth the experience, an alleged former whorehouse turned multi story home in the 7th arrondisemont that features her chef’s kitchen as a showpiece circling the home’s immense stone staircase. Her repertoire is varied, but to experience her takes on the ethnic varieties of Paris are a must. Indeed, she wrote a cookbook on the subject. Participants can delight in the whipped texture of her desserts as they nibble on cheese from her local monger and sip champagne out of vintage coups, perched around the ample island.
