Paris has many charms but one of the most admired is undoubtedly the food. From the finest haute cuisine restaurants with three prized Michelin stars to a humble neighbourhood bistro serving simple French fare, there is something for every palate. For those who really want to get to know the cuisine however, a French cooking class in Paris is an excellent choice. There are of course many to choose from, whatever your existing level of expertise, but it is important to find a course that matches your aspirations. A French cooking class in Paris at Le Foodist for example is perfect for those who seek a deeper understanding of both French food and culture.
At Le Foodist, we go a lot further than simply teaching our students how to cook a few French dishes. We believe in taking a much wider view of French cooking in order to impart a better knowledge of the cuisine. To do this, the chefs on our French cooking class in Paris share their thoughts on ingredients and menus as we cook, outlining the history and traditions that have brought them to our tables. Before we even start cooking though, our students begin their day in the market.
At the market, our students learn to select the finest and freshest ingredients from produce that is in season. This then shapes the menu that we decide to cook. Back in the kitchen, our French cooking class in Paris focuses on imparting some of the basic techniques of French cooking that must be mastered by every professional French chef. These core skills can then be used by students throughout their cooking. Our style is friendly and relaxed but also features a unique teaching technique that allows our students to learn more quickly and retain their new knowledge.
Our students tell us that they love hearing our thoughts on French culture and how it has shaped the meal we eat. Our discussions continue after the hard work of our French cooking class in Paris is completed. then we sit down together to enjoy the three course meal we have prepared, each course accompanied by a perfectly matched wine. In gaining a greater understanding of the culture which has shaped French cooking, we believe our students leave us with a greater appreciation of French food, along with new skills they can use for years to come.
