Full description
Discover some of the secrets to French cuisine at a small group cooking class in Paris. Held in the Latin Quarter, the class is typically limited to between 3 and 7 people to keep things intimate and personal. You wlll be welcomed at 10:30 once your hosts have returned from a local market armed with fresh produce for you to cook. Head to the kitchen and start building a menu based on what ingredients were available. This will include an appetizer, main course, and dessert using classic French techniques, such as ice cream and wine sauce. Learn how to plan a meal, and what can be prepared in advance. In total you will learn about 6-8 different techniques. After about 2 hours of cooking - fortified with a glass of wine or 2 - it’s time to enjoy a delicious meal, paired with red and white wines and generous servings of cheese. Sitting in the beautiful setting, you will be joined by a native Frenchman whose complete mastery of the English language will help him share stories about French food and culture. Lunch typically finishes at around 15:00 - but nobody will be rushing you out the door!
  • A hard copy and an electronic copy of all recipes in English
  • A 4-course meal, including cheeses, and red and white wines
  • Use of all cooking equipment and an apron

    Absolutely amazing experience! I was in a class led by Frederic, who was a fantastic instructor - made the class really fun and we all learned a lot. Every member in the class got to participate in the cooking. The class is well organized with breaks to enjoy the phenomenal meal in stages. I will definitely be back to take another class with Le Foodist next time I am visiting Paris!!

    Is highly recommend doing this, it was a great experience. Our chef Frederick was really kind and funny and made sure everyone knew what they had to do. He was so knowledgeable and also gave us recommendations for shops and restaurants in the city. We made 3 courses, and wine and cheese was provided throughout the class and while we ate as well.

    Fred who hosted the class is very knowledgeable and put a lot of humor in the class, he makes the class very interesting, one does get a lot of hands on to prepare the mise en place for the meal but you don’t actually do any cooking. When we booked, it was mentioned that we a 4 course lunch is included but in reality, only a 3-course lunch was prepared and served.
