What to Expect at Paris Cooking Classes at Le Foodist

Market I All at the market


Planning: This might be the topic about cooking which is the least covered in classes or books.  Yet we think the most critical - and at the heart of professional cooking.  So why not learn something about it with us?  We will be happy to share.


Food preparation II   All at work in the kitchen

Techniques: Simple techniques are the foundation of any great French meal and French professional cooking certification.  So we cover 5 to 7 of these fundamental techniques in each of our classes (for a total of 192). And then we explain a bit of the theory, because we all learn differently.


Market II Miscellaneous vegetables at the market

Ingredients:  Cooking could be defined as the transformation of ingredients to make them even more palatable.  So we will share how to choose them, why but also where they come from (often from very far from France).


Table wine and chairs 


Pairing Wine with Food: At the end of our class, we always sit down to enjoy the meal together - and to hear some stories about the wine we pair with the food.



Storytelling  Fred sharing a story at the table

Sharing Stories: In France, the pleasure of a meal derives both from the food and the fact that we share our meals.  And what do we share?  Usually conversations about food.  So we will make sure you hear our stories about the ingredients and recipes along the way, and take the opportunity to discover a bit more about the French culture along the way.
