Many visitors to Paris come specifically to enjoy the food and others develop a love for the cuisine during their time in the city. They may have been lucky enough to dine in one of Paris's great fine dining restaurants or to have stumbled upon a great little local bistro, serving hearty French fare in an unassuming environment. For some it is enough to take away memories of those wonderful meals but others are desperate to know more. For them a cookery course in Paris provides an excellent way to take home a little of culinary Paris that can stay with them forever.
It is not surprising that in such a culinary city that there are lots of different classes to choose from. Choosing the right course may seem difficult but at Le Foodist we think that there are some unique features of our cookery course in Paris, which can make that choice a little easier. Rather than just teach our students by rote how to prepare a few French dishes, we prefer to give them a thorough grounding in French cooking and an understanding of how that cuisine has been shaped by French culture.
Some of our students are surprised to find themselves in the food market instead of the kitchen as their course begins. But every good French chef knows the importance of using the best ingredients available. Here in the market then, our cookery course in Paris teaches our students how to select the best produce and use only the freshest in season ingredients. What we find in the market then informs our menus for the day and our dishes are chosen to reflect the best of what is available in the market.
The second foundation of great French food is learning the basic techniques of French cooking. Every one of our classes teaches some of the same techniques learned by every professional French chef. Our cookery course in Paris also features a unique teaching technique, which allows our students to learn faster and remember what they have been taught. With all the hard work over, we then sit down together to enjoy the three course meal that we have prepared, together with an excellent choice of three paired wines. Continuing our discussions, our students leave us with a much deeper appreciation of French cuisine and culture.
