The concept behind 60 faubourg Poisson- nière, Christophe Michalak’s cusine masterclass school, has evolved: not only an extra classroom has been added but the Take away has turned into a veritable patisserie, resulting in a greater variety of cakes on offer. One can still nd the Kosmiks as well as the Chef’s star pieces, and discover the Klassiks and other sweet ideas such as the Koonies, Klavier and Klakettes. The classes come in three guises: the ‘autour de’ variation, the ‘exclusif Michalak’ and discovery classes for children. The schedules have also expanded. But the relaxed and joyful ambiance remains the same and participants can enjoy the chef’s soundtrack and the architectural work of Marie Deroudilhe.
