Some would say that the best dining in Paris represents the best dining in the world. Many other international cuisines would argue of course but there can be no doubt that French cooking and particularly that of Paris, has influenced the world of cooking more than any other cuisine. To properly enjoy the best dining in Paris we at Le Foodist believe that you should understand how it has been cooked and the culture which has resulted in that cooking. To help achieve this goal, our 'Once Upon a Table' gourmet dining event will give you the opportunity to sample French gastronomy in a relaxed and informative environment.
During our Once Upon a Table events, you will enjoy a traditional five-course gastronomic meal prepared for you by our gourmet chef. Each dish is carefully selected to reflect the best that French classic cooking has to offer and comes with a unique Le Foodist twist to delight and surprise. We know of course that the best dining in Paris would not be complete without wine and each course is accompanied by one of five perfectly matched wines, personally selected by our expert sommelier.
At Le Foodist, we understand that even the finest cuisine does not stand on its own. To properly understand any great food we must appreciate where it comes from and what combination of history, geography and culture caused it to reach your plate. We know then that the best dining in Paris must be the natural result of all of these factors, which vary from region to region to enrich French cuisine. Just as important as the wine and food therefore are the reflections on French food and culture shared by your French hosts.
Having a good understanding of the background and techniques which go into producing fine cuisine deepens your appreciation of the cooking and increases your pleasure in the food. Likewise, we teach you how to identify wines using some simple techniques that will in future leave your dining companions extremely impressed. Our Once Upon a Table evenings are wonderful and memorable events in themselves of course but they are designed to leave you with a greater knowledge of French cooking and wine which will give you an enhanced enjoyment of the best dining in Paris long into the future.
