I loved my class at Lenôtre. Beautiful building and kitchens, with top quality professional cooking equipment.

Chef David Martin is a great chef, so experienced, who stayed down to earth and spent time to give us so many advices and improve our techniques, he's really easy to talk to and I can't wait for another class with him.

Recipes are somehow easy to learn, with a final «Lenôtre touch», which I will use soon at home for my parties !
