Who doesn’t love spring? The days are longer and warmer, the flowers are shinning, the sky is blue and outdoor activities become popular again! I love Paris during Spring and that’s why I am sharing with you, my to-do list:
1. Jardins – Grand Palais (March 15th – July 28th)

Thanks to the French Cooking Federation and The Town Holl of Paris, more than 500 free cooking classes will be available on some Paris markets. This year they have 9 different themes, like cuisine bio, cuisine du monde, tapas, Easter, and more.
