Haute-cuisine Heaven in Paris

After watching Top Chef for numerous seasons, you're quite the armchair culinary queen. Time to learn by doing. O Magazine is running a delicious Paris Culinary Extravaganza Sweepstakes. The winner receives two roundtrip business seat tickets to Paris from OpenSkies, along with two nights in a deluxe room at the luxurious Hôtel Plaza Athénée, where the likes of Josephine Baker and Rudolph Valentino have stayed. Your room will face Avenue Montaigne, so watch the film named after this fashionable street before you go. Start each morning with their complimentary breakfast (including champagne) before you hit the rue to shop. Save time for one private meeting/lesson with Hôtel Plaza Athénée's "Champion of Pastries." Sweet! Now you can discover how to make delectable French desserts. You'll also be treated to dinner for two in the private dining room of the acclaimed Alain Ducasse, where the prices are as outstanding as the restaurant.

And if that isn't enough, you will be transported to the opulent Hôtel Le Meurice, where Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Jodie Foster, have all slept. Now, you and your significant other can bed down for two nights in a Charles Jouffre redesigned suite with a view of Les Tuileries. After breakfast, which includes champagne each day, you may want walk it off in the gorgeous gardens built by Catherine de Medici. Then, return to the hotel for a private visit of the kitchen and a meeting with Yannick Alléno, the three-Michelin-star chef of Hôtel Le Meurice. Alléno will gift you with a signed copy of his book, so you can try his recipes at home. You will also be treated to lunch for two at the Restaurant Le Meurice, which could easily pass for Versailles. Indulge your taste buds with the Terroir Parisien menu, featuring wines selected by their sommelier. In the evening, people-watch as you sip complimentary cocktails in Hôtel Le Meurice's plush Bar 228, where the fashion crowd rendez-vous after work. Think this sounds heavenly? Butter up and enter.
