La Cucina di Terresa, Terresa Murphy’s home-based cooking school, offers Italian-influenced vegetarian cooking lessons in Paris to individuals and small groups. An ideal spot for the collision of cuisine and good company, Terresa’s kitchen is a testament to her industriousness. The place is stocked from floor to ceiling with enticing ingredients and kitted out with space-saving solutions that optimize a characteristically small Parisian kitchen.
Terresa provides the aprons and ambience to go along with her varied cooking classes. During two half-hour classes, a half-day class, or a full-day course ( which includes a tour of some of Terresa’s favorite Paris markets), you will roll up your sleeves and produce a three-course meal of quality ingredients, better than anything you’ll find in a neighboring bistro.
Terresa is dedicated to supporting local producers and only buys the best seasonal produce. Students in her classes will learn not only how to prepare fresh ingredients, but also when and where to buy them in Paris. Locavores, vegetarians and ethical foodies will find an ally in Terresa, and those who are interested in these food movements will likely see their conversion complete after spending a day at La Cucina di Terresa.
