Twice when in Italy, in Florence and Lucca, we were able to get a cook (and her assistant) to come to our rental flat and show us how to cook an Italian meal. It was very hands on and then they left us at the flat to enjoy the results of our cooking lesson.
We'd like to do the same while in Paris but all the cooking lessons I've seen require attendance at a school or the cooking instructor's kitchen. Does anyone know if there are cooking instructors who will come to your flat? We're not looking for anything as serious as Cordon Bleu.
