Celebrating a special occasion? Book the whole table
I am a mother of three and professional in the food sector. First, I worked for a company with organic products, then in distribution for Reflets de France for Carrefour. I discovered my passion for food when I was 15 years old, watching my mother and grandmother transform produce from the garden into simple yet delicious dishes. They passed their recipes onto me, along with a few tips and tricks, and a joy for sharing meals around the table. This is the rich heritage I in turn wish to bring to my guests. I also like to propose some cooking classes at my home. My guests are usually foreigners living in Paris, people who share a general interest in food, and tourists who are looking for an authentic culinary experience “at home”. You are welcome in my apartment and in my kitchen! // Passionnée de cuisine depuis l’âge de 15 ans, j’ai toujours aimé regarder cuisiner ma mère et ma grand-mère. Excellentes cuisinières, ce sont les produits du potager, du verger et de la basse-cour qu’elles transforment alors en plats simples mais savoureux. Tradition orale des recettes, gestes précis, astuces, goût du travail bien fait et amour à partager à travers les bons petits plats , c’est tout cet héritage que j’ai envie à mon tour de transmettre. Adulte, j’oriente ma carrière professionnelle dans l’agroalimentaire. J’ai travaillé pour le compte d’une société de produits biologiques puis dans la grande distribution avec la mise au point des produits Reflets de France pour Carrefour. Aujourd’hui, maman de 3 enfants, c’est tout naturellement que je propose avec grand plaisir des cours de cuisine à la maison. Mon public : traditionnellement des étrangers vivant à Paris, curieux de la cuisine française, et parfois même des touristes de passage voulant vivre une expérience culinaire originale « comme à la maison ». Je vous reçois dans mon appartement, dans ma cuisine.

What to expect at Odile's place
Odile and her husband, Pierre, were the most welcoming guests. We so, so enjoyed talking with them and hearing their perspective about things going on in Paris and around the world. The cooking was absolutely SUPERB, and now I have inspiration to make duck. Would 100% book this experience again and recommend to those visiting Paris—especially for those that want to get more of a taste of real Parisian life and do something not on a typical tourist agenda. Odile and Pierre made us feel like we were old friends visiting in town and I hope to see them in the future.
Odile was a lovely and gracious hostess. We were five at her apartment for a pastry class. The youngest of our group was 8 and the oldest was 68. We all enjoyed the conversation and learning from Odile. Her home is beautiful. She's easy to talk with. I would suggest this for anyone who is looking for a fun memory from Paris. I hear she also does dinners. Next time I'm in Paris I would love to try that as well.
Really enjoyed Odile and her husband. We were met with cheese and wine in a very comfortable and warm environment. We felt very welcomed in her home and the food was delicious. Odile made a fabulous salmon and leeks in pastry, which was preceded by a wonderful and hearty pumpkin soup. Dessert was a whipped, fluffy, sugared meringue topped with raspberry sauce. It was a great finish to a wonderful night of conversation on culture and current topics. I would recommend Odile
