Evening Cooking Class and Dinner

In our Cooking Class and Dinner classes, we will spend two and a half hours preparing a traditional three-course French dinner from scratch.  And while we will cook traditional French dishes, such as Onion Soup or Tarte Tatin, we will make sure you not only learn the recipes, but the why behind the techniques. So you can be successful at home. And this is always followed by a scrumptious dinner with your Chef who will happily share stories about French food and culture – while also sipping some nice white and red wines.  All these classes are hands-on, taught in English, set in a beautiful location, fund and instructive, and in small groups of maximum 12 people.

Our Evening Cooking Class and Dinner in Paris Step by Step

STEP 1: Meet your Chef at the school in the heart of the Latin Quarter for an evening of learning, cooking and fun.

STEP 2: You will proceed to the first part of “mise en place”: weighing, chopping, dicing all come into play. And an opportunity to learn new skills in the process.

STEP 3: It is time to cook – and to learn why we cook certain things the way we do. And whatever we discuss, it is always with a focus on how the technique brings the best flavour.

STEP 4: Tasting your food as you cook it is always a good idea – as it is often too late by the time it is served.

STEP 5: Before serving dinner there will be time to plate the appetizers, and you will get the opportunity to come back to the kitchen to plate the other dishes. This is a time for creativity and efficiency.

STEP 6: It is time to enjoy your dinner with your Chef, along with stories about French Food and Culture and how they all tie together. And this is an opportunity as well for you to experience how we pair wine and food.

I recommend this experience whole heartedly

We booked this cooking class online, I personally enjoy cooking and thought it would be a great experience to have together with my wife and daughter. The experience was better than I could have hoped. Chef Christophe is very knowledgeable despite his young age, and he teaches the class in a fun way. We enjoyed every minute and ended up preparing a terrific meal that we were pleasantly surprised that we managed to prepare.

An incredible experience cooking in Paris at Le Foodist!

It was so much more than a cooking class and exceeded all our expectations! If you are going to Paris you MUST fit this in! 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 dining room.
Thank you, Fred, and Le Foodist, for this unforgettable afternoon.

There were so many highlights !

There were so many highlights - the spotless kitchen and beautifully decorated dining area; the fresh ingredients, the wine and cheese mixer - but the absolute best part of the experience was Frederic, our chef. Knowledgeable and practical, perfectly bilingual, delightful Parisian flair, with an entertaining style and acerbic wit that kept us on our toes and kept the class moving. He had our total attention the entire time. Easy and fun - do not be intimidated - this was a basic intro to French cooking techniques - beginners welcome!! Great to break bread with fellow travelers and share stories. I'll take another class the next time in Paris!

Discover French Culture through Other Food Experiences

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.
