What a unique and authentic food experience!
Anonymous, Apr 2023
Our time with Alexia was a highlight of our trip to Annecy! I have done food experiences in many places on my travels, but this was unlike any other. Shopping in the market with Alexia was so fun and I learned a lot! We spent the day discussing food, experiencing Alexia’s creative and exceptionally healthy dishes, and just enjoying such an authentic experience. I HIGHLY recommend this…you will not regret it!
A 'must do' when visiting Annecy!

This private tour with Alexia was so wonderful and we would 100% recommend. We stayed in Annecy a few weeks ago and it was a great way to fully experience the market when visiting. She took great care in choosing fresh ingredients that are sold by local retailers and every course she served was just incredible and tasty. It was wonderful to head back to Alexia's apartment for long chats over lunch. At the market, you could see Alexia’s love for food as it inspired the dishes she cooked. It’s hard to choose favourites but I have to mention the incredibly fresh new potatoes that were served with cheese and salad and also the plum cake! Thank you Alexia for such a great experience.
Hospitable and welcoming. Full of recommendations.

Alexia was so hospitable and welcoming. She spent a whole morning with me talking about her pasión for food and bringing that to life. Her demonstration was personal but professional. She left me with recommendations for her favorite places around town to enhance the remainder of my visit. She went above and beyond expectations.

The private market tour with Alexia was easily the highlight of our trip. When we arrived at the farmers market, she had an idea of a few different recipes that she was planning to make with us. All of her recipes were healthy, had lots of vegetables, and supported the idea of sustainable farming by using local and fresh ingredients. All of the food was delicious. Our favorite was probably the stuffed zucchini. Alexia was a delight to talk to and she gave us great restaurant recommendations for Annecy and even Nice (where we were headed after Annecy). I could not recommend this enough if you want and authentic French cooking experience.
