About this experience

Even without chef’s whites, a toque, and that characteristic accent, you can recreate the quintessential flavors of the French bistro at home. In this workshop, longtime New York restaurateur, private chef, and cooking instructor Chef Abigail Hitchcock will guide you through cooking à la française—turning simple ingredients into sensational French favorites. Served with some French wine and Edith Piaf playing in the background, you’ll be able to bring Paris home whenever you so desire.

Chez You: French Bistro at Home

What to expect

You and Chef Abigail Hitchcock will meet in your kitchen (over video chat) to cook, taste, share stories, and acquire valuable skills that will last well beyond your time together.


This Delicious Experience is not a pre-recorded cooking video, big Zoom gathering, or the kind of online course where your eyes glaze over; it is a one-of-a-kind private experience where you will work together with Chef Abigail Hitchcock to create something amazing in your kitchen.


After booking, you will communicate with the chef to adapt the experience and menu to your tastes and interests, then receive a customized ingredients list.


Prior to your online cooking class we will provide you with a Zoom link and any assistance you may need to connect to the experience from your laptop, tablet, or phone.

Connect up to 2 screens to share the experience with friends or family. Contact us for discounted rates on additional screens.
