Your hosts

We are the ultimate French foodlovers & 100% passionate about our culture. We created "Foodies in Paris", so that we could share some truly unique moments with other like-minded devotees like yourselves. We were lucky enough to be able to learn how to cook traditional French dishes from our grandmothers and that’s how we acquired our passion for cakes & pastries! Over the years, we have gained in understanding, by meeting with chefs, going to cookery masterclasses and cooking for us! We now wish to share our culture with you, and give you a genuinely French culinary experience! Matt & Co
