To some, French cuisine is most famous for its desserts: from souffle to brulee, from chocolate mousse to mille-feuille, or even Tarte Tatin (the famous inverted Apple tart) and French macarons. While you can learn how to make all of these French pastries with us, this particular class will focus on Chocolate Souffle, Creme Brulee and Crepes Suzette. And more than a dessert recipe, we will share tips and tricks so you can better enjoy the Pastry arts. However, no class at Le Foodist is complete without enjoying all these delicacies in our lovely dining room. With coffee, tea and white wine you will therefore enjoy the produce of your labour with your French pastry Chef.
STEP 3: You will make your own crêpes which you will cover with delicious orange and Cointreau home made caramel sauce. This is the famous Crêpe Suzette.
STEP 4: The art of brûléing your crème will have no secrets for you once you will have taken this class; and of course you could do this with many other types of crèmes.
During our trip to Paris, we did the french deserts cooking class led by Ann. It was one of the highlights of our vacation! Very well organized AND recipes I can actually cook at home! Great experience!

Bonjour Yelpers, the two French Cooking Classes we took with Le Foodist were an absolute pleasure and the highlights of our week in Paris. [...] Second, three-hours on Thursday, with Florence, making four famous French Desserts (Crêpes Suzette, Crème Brûlée, Chocolate Soufflé, and Financiers / also €99 per person). [...] The chefs were friendly, funny, informative and attentive to the students, the pace was comfortable (I never felt rushed), the kitchen was well equipped and restrooms clean. I recommend the classes, the Chefs, and Le Foodist unreservedly. Five Stars. And we are already talking about which classes we want to take when we return to Paris!

Even if you do not bake this is a very good class and well worth the fee. The ambiance of the baking laboratory is very nice, well equipped and the staff are all very helpful. I recommend this to anyone interested in bread, baking or just want to experience the process.

Discovering culture through food is what we want to do when we travel. So we have developed all our experiences with that simple idea in mind: ensure that you learn both about the topic at hand, but also about French culture in the process. So in our food tours, we will talk about the history of various aspects of French food, in our cooking class in Paris about how certain dishes became so important in our culture. During our wine tastings, we will explore the regional differences in French culture. And, a regional residential holiday is an opportunity to deep dive French food culture to its core and foundation: the regional gastronomies, and the concept of terroir. Follow the links to explore further.
