Sunday is a day of rest for many people, but there’s plenty to keep you busy on Sunday in Paris… like a cooking class with a professional chef and the market in Montmartre.
Starting off just after 8 o’clock this morning, I walked from the hotel to a nearby metro station to catch a train to the rendezvous spot for the Paris school of Cook’n with Class. I was to watch for a man “toting a green grocery cart.” Sure enough, just on time, here came Anton.
Sunday in Paris
Sunday market in the area near the Jules Joffrin Metro is quite different from market days in Uzes. Here the “stalls” are actual stores that are open for Sunday shoppers. For today, though, many stores were shuttered for the presidential Election Day. Fortunately, we had a great selection of fish, meats, and vegetables available that stirred our imagination…and our appetite.
Have you ever seen such perfect produce?
….and the meats and fish. Perfect!
After gathering the main ingredients for our menu, which was decided upon while we were shopping, we headed for the Cook’n With Class school, which was nearby.
By the time we’d reached the cooking school, Chef Anton had come up with our 4-course menu: pan-seared sea bass with asparagus and tomato butter; duck breast with baby vegetables and celeriac mousseline; cheese, and pear tart baurdalou.
Here’s where we started:
Here’s where we ended … all those lovely ingredients…and WE created this!
