T+L Reports: Parisian Fast Food

Have a half-hour to kill in Paris?Just a stone's throw from the Palais de l'Élysée,
the modern and bright Atelier des Chefs (10 Rue de Penthièvre,
Eighth Arr.; 33-1/53-30-05-82; www.atelierdeschefs.com; lunch for two $35)
has created
a midday class for foodies on the go who have little time to take—let alone make—a
leisurely lunch. In this state-of-the-art kitchen, workshop-style cooking classes are taught
by an international roster of chefs from notable Parisian restaurants, offering instructions
for easy but sophisticated seasonal dishes, such as sautéed skate in a tangy caper
sauce, in 30 minutes flat. The hands-on classes are taught only in French, but the lessons
really boil down to following the chef's step-by-step demonstrations —so you won't go
hungry if you can't remember the difference between hacher and émincer.
