Meet Anne

Anne grew up in suburbs outside of Paris and was a journalist for 20 years before realizing that food was her passion; she changed her career, wrote three cookbooks and has now been working in food full-time for three years. Anne delights in cooking simple things with her own creative twist, and in showing people some of the simple and delicious tricks to making home-cooked, delicious foods - like churning her own fresh butter from creme fraîche. Anne lives in a unique property in Montmartre, a tall and skinny town home that features five living floors and a beautiful roof deck overlooking the famous Sacré Coeur basilica.

Anne's passion for food runs deep. “When I can’t sleep I read about food, I watch about food… everything is about food. When I don’t feel well I have to cook. I have to feel butter and flour in my hands.” In addition to her incredible passion for food and cooking Anne loves finding things at the flea market, walking through Paris and stopping in every pastry shop to eat. Ask Anne for her plentiful recommendations for places to eat and her favorite coffee shops in the city.

What to expect

Please note menu might vary. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

Market visit: (2-7 guests) Meet Anne at a local bakery where you will pick up fresh bread, then continue on to Anne's local butcher and grocery store to pick up artisanal ham, butter and fresh juice. Return the short walk to Anne's unique home where Anne will teach you how to make croque monsieur, including making a fresh bechamel sauce. Enjoy your meal together either in Anne's living and kitchen area or, if it is a nice day, on Anne's beautiful rooftop terrace overlooking the famous Sacré Coeur basilica. In addition to your croque monsieur you will enjoy a fresh green salad and juice; for dessert enjoy some French pastries or sweets such as fontainbleu with fresh cream, cheese and sugar, homemade cookies, financiers or pastries from the local bakery.

Notes: Please note that Anne lives in a unique property that is a tall and narrow town house; the kitchen is on the top floor, so you will need to climb five short flights of stairs to reach the experience.

FAQ

    You can cancel your experience 48 hours or more before your experience date and receive a full refund. To request a cancellation once you have made a booking simply log in and click the "Request Cancellation" link from the bottom of your booking. Your refund will be processed immediately (note it can take up to 10 business days for this refund to post to your credit card statement). Please note that for cancellations within 48 hours of your experience we unfortunately cannot offer a refund; this is because our hosts typically purchase food and begin their preparations up to 48 hours before the experience.

    Most of our hosts are able to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies, including vegetarian and gluten free options. For vegetarian travelers, we have an icon on each host profile to indicate whether that host can also offer a fully vegetarian menu. There is a section in the booking form to note any allergies or dietary restrictions which will be sent directly to your host.

    Once you request a booking you can message your host directly to ask any specific questions. Your messages will be emailed directly to the host and any responses will be forwarded to your email and can also be seen on the Traveling Spoon website.

    Your card will not be charged until your host accepts your booking. Typically hosts respond to bookings within 72 hours. In the event your host is unavailable on your selected date and your host rejects your booking your credit card will not be charged.

    Your host's detailed contact information, including their phone number, address, and direction notes, will all be provided immediately upon successful confirmation of your experience (after your hosts accepts your booking and your credit card is successfully processed).

    All prices are noted as per person prices unless otherwise specified (typically transportation is charged on a per car basis, but otherwise all prices are per person).

    Some hosts offer alcohol as an optional add-on for travelers who are of legal drinking age. Pricing for alcohol is visible on the host profile page and includes one to two glasses of wine, beer or local alcohol.

    Some hosts offer transportation as an optional add-on for travelers. Typically this is round trip transportation with pick up and drop off at your hotel. Pricing is quoted per car. Specific instructions for transportation will be provided in your confirmation details when your booking is confirmed.

    Many of our hosts accommodate solo travelers. You can see if a host accepts solo travelers by looking at the traveler range found next to the experience descriptions on the host profile (indicated by the numbers in parentheses next to "In-home meal", "Cooking experience" and "Market visit").

    Your safety and security are our top priority. To ensure this, Traveling Spoon personally vets 100% of all hosts, including an in-person host visit, to ensure each host and experience meets our strict quality requirements.
