Description

Meet your host Aurore at her home and then walk to her local market. While the market sets up, share an espresso with Aurore. Next you’ll sample some cheese at a fromagerie, make a pit stop at a boulangerie to pick up a freshly baked loaf of bread and then at a local boucherie to select a cut of meat or seafood for your cooking class. The last stop will be L’epicerie, a fine specialty spice shop, which Aurore frequents on a regular basis.

Aurore lives in a charming, sun-filled, Parisian apartment in the 7th arrondissement, only a short walk from the Eiffel Tower. You'll join her in her kitchen to learn to cook a modern fusion French meal. Aurore is born and raised in Paris but loves adding a little twists from her diverse background (Indian, Italian, Vietnamese and Ukrainian) on classic French dishes. You might learn to prepare dishes like ballotine (filo sheet stuffed with goat cheese, mint and honey), stuffed chicken or pork a la dijonnaise - all from scratch.

Aurore has the most fascinating, interesting and diverse background. Her mother is half Vietnamese, half Indian; her father is half Italian half Ukrainian and her husband is French, making Aurore truly a world citizen! Aurore is a native of Paris, a self-taught cook, who inherited her love for cooking at an early age. She was truly lucky to learn cooking from her parents who came from such a diverse backgrounds and fondly remembers helping around in the kitchen doing small chores like cutting carrots for dinner. She learned from her parents to cook Vietnamese, Indian, Italian, Ukrainian and French food and now wishes to share this knowledge with her children as well!

Aurore’s mother cooked almost every single meal, and Aurore does the same for her family as well. Aurore loves to cook from scratch and uses only the best ingredients; she also knows the origin story of every ingredient she uses, as she believes they are at the heart of what she does. “I'm very proud when my 5 year old son tells me that his hachis parmentier (shepherd's pie) at school wasn't good because there wasn't any garlic, or nutmeg!“

Aurore is happy to share some of her secret cooking tips and techniques with you as well!
