• "I had a wonderful time at Thierry's and am very happy with my experience. He gives good instructions (in English, French and German), and offers great cooking tips. He makes delicious food with you which is shared over a bottle of wine, and sometimes with the very warm and welcoming Claude. Thierry's patient and relaxed demeanor helps puts you at ease, but he is disciplined in the kitchen and very efficient with your time. His home is beautiful and very comfortable and I really enjoyed cooking in his personally-designed kitchen. He was very open to cooking all of the sweet and savory dishes I had suggested and he introduced me to other specialties specific to Lyon and elsewhere in France. When not in the kitchen, Theirry took time to show me around the market, point out architectural highlights of his neighborhood, and give me tips as to where to eat and what to see around Lyon. I would highly recommend Thierry's classes. Thanks again!"

  • "Chef Thierry's class should be the first thing you do when you get to Lyon. He brings you around his neighborhood, gives you local insight, knows where to buy the best fruits and vegetables, and lets you know where you should eat, go out, etc. But of course, the highlight and main purpose to go to him is to learn how to cook. Cooking with him is like cooking with a friend (that's also a skilled chef). He teaches you practical ways to cook; you know, skills you can actually bring home, not just use once in a cooking class. He keeps the class fun and exciting with his warm and energetic personality. I have a lot of allergies and he made a menu custom to my diet!"

  • "Thierry was an excellent host, and taught us many things about French cooking. We had fun creating the meal, and enjoying it to the fullest. Thank you, Thierry! Kind regards."                                                                                                                                                                        Bill & Sylvia

  • "Our meal and our experience were both incredible. Thierry was an excellent host and an excellent instructor. This was one of the best travel experiences my husband and I have had. Thierry gave us context and history for the dishes we were making. He was a hands-on, patient, and excellent instructor. He was personable and chatted with us the whole day, especially when we ate the meal in he afternoon. His apartment was beautiful, his kitchen was a pleasure to work in, and the food we made was fantastic. I cannot recommend this experience enough. I'd do it again if we went back to Lyon."                                                                                                    Emily

  • "The cooking and the meal was a great experience and we will do this again in Lyon. Thierry spoke about some history of Lyon and also of the origin of each dish. This was very informative. His kitchen is very interesting to work in. Thanx Thierry "                                       zandra

  • "Thierry Rodolphe est très sympathique et attentionné, atmosphère chaleureuse dans son superbe appartement de charme avec beaucoup de cachet. Super cours de cuisine, plein d'astuces, bon rythme, beaucoup d'humour, repas délicieux, et une mention spéciale pour les toilettes japonaises. Nous avons apprécié sa flexibilité en particulier sur le menu. Très bon moment. Nous le recommandons :)"    Anne
