École Ritz Escoffier

First Arrondissement
Cooking Classes

The Ritz Escoffier cooking school, named for the hotel’s first executive chef, has returned with classes for professionals and avid home cooks alike—including Introduction to French Pastry Making or the more intense five-day long French Haute Cuisine cooking course. A special new class revisits original recipes created by August Escoffier dating back to 1898, including a Chicken Breast a L’Élysée. For those who want something a little more laid-back, French master patîssier and TV personality Christophe Michalak’s L’École Masterclass offers three-hour classes in whimsical pastry making with the chef himself (from $340; 60 Rue du Faubourg-Poissonière; 10th Arr.; 33-1/42-46-10-45; christophemichalak.com).
