  • I would recommend Dominique and his cooking skills to everyone!! I was not sure what to expect since the classs was in his home. No Worries, it was like cooking with an old friend who happened to have amazing skills and knowledge about food, cooking and Paris that was happily passed on. It is a must do when traveling to Paris, it connections you to the food and culture in a way that you can't imagine.!!
