Living in France


About this Department

The French lifestyle has always been associated with a sense of style that is unique to their culture. While most of us were not born with that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ quality that comes so effortlessly to our Gallic compatriots, we can certainly try to learn some of their secrets. WICE is proud to offer courses that will show you how to master the French art of ‘savoir vivre.’

Cooking classes provide an expert chefs view on typical French cuisine, and how to prepare these wonderful dishes at home. Hands-on baking classes and gastronomic tours are also offered.

Help us keep this department vibrant and exciting by sending us your ideas for subjects and classes you would like to see included. Email us at livinginfrance@wice-paris.org.
