OUR CHEFS, FOOD TOUR GUIDES AND SOMMELIER


AMANDA

"Amanda was very organized, gave wonderful instructions, and made our afternoon a true cooking adventure. We made three flavors of macarons - all quite yummy! After our macarons were complete, we had a lovely tea so that we could enjoy our beautiful goodies. We also each ended up with a large variety box full of our confections to enjoy throughout our week." Havilover, July 2019, TripAdvisor

"My husband and I with our 2 teens, ages 14 and 17 took the croissant baking class with Amanda. A small class, total of only 6, so plenty of individual attention. Amanda, our instructor chef, is very knowledgeable and made the class challenging enough but fun at the same time. I had no idea that croissants took so much work. We all enjoyed our experience very much, including both of my kids. We plan to take another class here on our next trip to Paris!" Lucy S, Aug, 2019, Google


ANNE

"My husband and I really enjoyed our experience learning how to make macarons! Our teacher, Anne, was very sweet and clearly incredibly knowledgeable on the topic and she was a great communicator. We left the class with a box of beautiful and very delicious macarons and it was such a fun experience."Signe C, June 2019, TripAdvisor

"Had the absolute best time learning to master macarons with Anne! She made things easy to understand and simple to follow. Very much enjoyed this class and highly recommend to everyone!" Alexa Earlywine, Aug 2018, Google

 

CHRISTOPHE

"What a truly wonderful experience! It was DELIGHTFUL! Christophe was our Chef and he did not disappoint. He is charming, knowledgeable, patient and in the end we sat down to delicious French inspired meal. Thank you Le Foodist, we will certainly be back and look forward to another cooking class". likestotravel123Ct, Nov. 2019, TripAdvisor

"We took a morning course including a market tour in Paris and it was a great experience. Chef Christof was very professional, tought us many things about the French cousine and was very nice and we highly recommend this special activity". Ilanut Vudinsky, Oct. 2019, Facebook

EMILY

"I took the Latin Quarter Food tour with my friends and it was excellent from start to finish! Our guide Emily was superb, very informative, she gave us insights into French food and culture, historic Latin Quarter and Paris. We started with boulangeries and we learnt not only the history of French bread but also tried different types of baguettes. Her wonderful sense of humour made our tour experience such fun!" Lucia, Nov. 2019, Yelp

"Our tour was definitely above expectations. Our tour guide, Emily, was excellent. She is fluent in all things "food" and her local knowledge was incomparable. She geared the tour around our interests and the lunch was superb. We cannot make a higher recommendation". Mary C, Nov. 2019, TripAdvisor


FLORENCE

"We had a lovely morning at Le Foodist! Florence (our baker) was a delight and very patiently walked two very novice bakers through the process of making croissants. They were delicious! Really fun experience and a nice break from sightseeing. We had a great time. A wonderful experience in Paris! " Stacie, F., August 2019, TripAdvisor

"Florence was such an amazing instructor. I, and my friend, are not newbies and we learned a lot beside people who were not very experienced. She had patience, humor and a fantastic teaching style that worked for every student at every level." Diana Cihak, Sept. 2019, Facebook


FRED

"Fred is an excellent teacher. He is patient, knowledgeable, charming, and has a great sense of humor. The meal we prepared was absolutely delicious but not complicated and practical enough to make on your own if you wanted to. The group of about 10 people were very friendly...we drank wine as we prepared the food in a beautiful kitchen and ate together in a quaint dinning room. Thank you Fred and Le Foodist for this unforgettable afternoon." Lauren Stacey, Oct. 2019, Facebook

"An amazing way to spend time in Paris. My wife and I took the lunch cooking course with Fred during our recent trip. The food was fantastic but the most enjoyable part was learning, as Fred is very funny while also being informative. Will definitely visit again if we find ourselves back in Paris!" Zack Lofton, Oct 2018, Google


FREDERIC

"From the moment we met Frederick we knew it would be a great day! Very personable and fun, but serious about his cooking! We learned so much and enjoyed a hands-on cooking class, complete with plenty of wine! Over-all a must do if you are looking for something fun and different in Paris." Coastal, August 2019, TripAdvisor

We loved, loved, loved this class with Fred. He was so knowledgeable and helpful and has a terrific sense of humor. Our class made 6 varieties of macarons and had a wonderful time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! My DH who does not cook considers this a highlight of our 3 week trip. Joni K, April 2019, TripAdvisor

GUILLLAUME

"Guillaume was a wonderful teacher, employing the right amount of expertise, humor, guidance to ensure we all had a great time and actually learned how to make croissants. They were so good! And my favorite part was his trick how to use up little bits of dough so they aren't wasted." Shannon S., August 2019, Google

"Guillaume was a fantastic teacher and we had the best time learning how to make and then enjoying our macarons with tea and coffee. I would highly recommend this activity for something a little different when visiting Paris". Rebecca, May 2019, TripAdvisor

STEPHANE

"Stephane is very engaging with everyone and made everyone in the room feel part of the experience. I got the added bonus of sabering a bottle of champagne! I highly recommend this class and look forward to a cooking class the next time I visit Paris! It's a lovely establishment! Oh, and Stephane owes me a trip to visit his aunts! :-) 
Well done, Le Foodist & Stephane!" Melissia D., July 2019, Yelp

"We really enjoyed our wine and cheese pairing with Stephane. He was knowledgeable about the wine and cheese but he made the class interesting and fun. We laughed so much with him. If we return to Paris I would definitely take more classes at Le Foodist". Jeanne, March 2019, TripAdvsior

SARAH

"Sarah is the greatest person you will ever meet. She was so informative and kind. She was also very helpful in recommending cooking products, sights, and even took the time to help us make a dinner reservation. We had a fantastic time and everything was delicious. Thank you Sarah!" Heylamby, August 2019, TripAdvisor

 "Awesome cooking experience! Sara is a fabulous chef who was an excellent instructor and chef!! Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the group of people we had too. Thank you!!" Gayle Bunch, Oct. 2019, Facebook
