10th Anniversary Giveaway #3: French Cooking Class at La Cuisine Paris

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of C&Z, I am hosting 10 giveaways throughout the month of October. Keep checking back for chances to win wonderful products I’ve discovered and loved over the past decade!

Our third giveaway prize is the cooking class of your choice from La Cuisine Paris.

La Cuisine Paris is a wonderful cooking school located in the center of Paris, right by the Seine. It is run by a French-American couple who have created a warm and inviting space for home cooks to learn about French cuisine and French pastries through hands-on cooking classes taught by professional chefs. They also organize market classes, tasting classes, and food tours.

For this giveaway, owner Jane Bercht is offering a gift certificate for the class of your choice (taught in English), whether you want to learn about croissants, macarons, or soufflés, prepare a three-course gourmet dinner, learn to shop at a French market, or go out to Versailles to visit the King’s Vegetable Garden (see class details).

The prize doesn’t include transportation to Paris (I wish!) and the certificate is valid through the end of 2014. If you win, Jane will get in touch with you so you can discuss dates and class choices.

To participate, leave a comment below (in English or in French) telling me about the most memorable cooking class you took, or the one you dream of taking someday. And if you’re on Facebook, please consider liking La Cuisine Paris’ page (and the C&Z page, too!).

You have until Monday, October 14, midnight Paris time to enter; I will then draw one entry randomly and announce it here. You are welcome to play regardless of your current location, as long as you intend to be in Paris sometime before the end of 2014. Please make sure you enter your email address correctly so I can contact you if you win.

Good luck! And check back on Thursday for a new giveaway.


I have drawn an entry at random using random.org (see screen capture below), and I am pleased to announce the winner is Aly, who wrote, “My mother, grandmother, sister in law, and I took a cooking class at Mama Agata in Ravello, Italy. It was wonderful to all be together and my grandma (just shy of 90) came from that area and so enjoyed speaking with Mama Agata. The food was delicious and the landscape absolutely stunning. It’s a lovely family-run business and I treasure the memories.”

Congratulations Aly, and thank you all for entering with such wonderful cooking class memories and ideas!
