Boasting more than 13,000 restaurants, Paris remains a leading capital of food and many come just to enjoy that part of the city. But every year, some of the 15 million tourists traveling to Paris take their love of French food one step further by taking a cooking class in Paris. This is because learning to cook is also a great way to build a deeper understanding of the local culture. Especially at Le Foodist, where each cooking class in Paris is also an opportunity to share stories on how both Food and Culture are related. So people who enjoy strolling the streets of Paris for its stunning architecture and its tens of world class museums also enjoy spending some time with us learning both how to cook and about French culture.
