Cooking is a full sensory experience. Cooking while on vacation is a joyous experience you can give yourself, or your partner. Learning how to prepare tantalising, authentic cuisine through informal conversation over food and wine, and spending time in a personal setting with locals, as well as people from other parts of the world are facets of discovering a culture that is not yours but allows you to bond over a common point – food. The École de Cuisine Alain Ducasse in Paris offers classes for every taste, every level, in one word - everyone. From traditional cooking and pastry classes to wine tastings, the school draws its strength and difference from a team of chefs who put the "Alain Ducasse" know-how. A cooking class here encourages you to try new foods and cooking techniques, and offers a great perspective into other people's lives and meaningful insight into the French culture. Life is what you bake of it, after all.
