Paris attracts visitors for all sorts of reasons. The city itself is beautiful of course and simply wandering the streets is a pleasure. Some come to view the extraordinary art collections and others still are attracted by the stunning architecture or many fashion houses. Paris is forever linked with food though and many visitors arrive to dine at the outstanding restaurants in the city. Others want to take their love of French food one step further and for them a cooking class in Paris France is the ideal solution. Learning to cook is a great way to build a deeper understanding of French food and at Le Foodist we have a unique approach which helps develop a lasting appreciation of the cuisine.
At Le Foodist, we take a wider view of teaching French cuisine. We firmly believe that to properly understand French food, one needs to understand French culture. During our cooking class in Paris France we talk about history and the movement of people in France. This lets us trace the origin of great dishes and from this we come to realise why we eat what we do. At the same time, we build on solid foundations of cooking skill.
One of the most important skills in French cooking is often overlooked on cookery courses. Choosing the best ingredients is a vital skill for any chef and that is why our cooking class in Paris France begins in the food market. Here our students learn to select the best of in season produce. This in turn informs our menus and decides on the dishes that we will cook on the day. Then it is back to the kitchen where we begin by teaching some of the same core skills that must be mastered by every professional chef in France.
During the course we aim to impart solid knowledge about French cooking and we use a unique teaching technique to help our students learn quickly and retain their new knowledge. Our cooking class in Paris France isn't all about hard work though. After the cooking if finished we sit down together to enjoy the three course meal we have prepared along with well chosen matching wines. Here again we will discuss how food influences French culture and leave our students with a lasting appreciation of the role of food in French life.
