New Alain Ducasse Cooking School at BHV Marais in Paris

Alain Ducasse Cooking School

L'École de Cuisine Alain Ducasse—the star chef’s acclaimed cooking school—has just opened a new space at BHV Marais, the landmark department store near the Paris City Hall. (The beloved store rebranded at the end of last year with a flashy marketing change and a new name; “Marais” was tacked on to the end, emphasizing its location.)

Located on the third floor, the cooking school offers a range of courses starting from 70€ (1.5 hours). After a morning shopping the summer sales, you can sign up for the 1 pm “Cuisinez & déjeunez” course for a convivial lunch. Learn to make a gourmet dish like red mullet in a olive and basil gratinee, then sit down to savor it, along with something sweet.
