Envision strolling through the streets of Paris with the Eiffel Tower in the background with blooming daffodils and magnolia trees providing sweet smells and splashes of color. You stop at numerous bistros enjoying rich French flavors and perfectly-paired wine. Experience that same culinary delight as we transform our entire Merchandise Mart location into Paris for one special evening.
Guests will enjoy a night of delectable French food and wine as you learn how to recreate the dishes at home with the help of our professional chefs. We'll cast the charm of the City of Light throughout our kitchens as you travel from room to room tasting and learning about French classic recipes that will be demonstrated throughout the evening.

To get your evening started, you will be welcomed with an appetizer spread featuring classic French hors d'oeuvres such as Gougères, Pork Rillettes and Smoked Salmon Canapes to name a few. You'll then leisurely stroll throughout the space visiting multiple demonstration stations, and enjoying generous tastings of classic French fare. Then wrap up the evening enjoying French desserts featuring Macarons, Chocolate Mousse with Candied Hazelnuts, Mini Fruit Tarts and Pâtes de Fruit (Assorted Sugar-Coated Fruit Jellies). This one-of-a-kind event will satisfy your cravings for French food and wine in a romantic setting.
