Morning Cooking Class and Lunch in Paris

In our Paris Cooking Class and Lunch, you will learn about French Food and Culture by first preparing a three-course lunch with a local professional Chef from our small team. While you will learn recipes, you will also hear stories about the techniques and ingredients, going from science to history. And we will focus on techniques, to make sure you can reproduce what you learn at home. All this will be followed by a traditional French lunch, served with white and red wine which you will also share with your Chef. All these classes are hands-on, taught in English, set in a beautiful location, fun and instructive, and in small groups of maximum 12 people.

Tues. to Sund.

Our Morning Paris Cooking Class and Lunch Step by Step

STEP 1: Meet your Chef at the school in the heart of the Latin Quarter for a day 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 the 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 lunch 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 lunch with your Chef, along with stories about French Food and Culture. And this is an opportunity as well for you to experience how we pair wine and food.

Stop reading reviews, this is the one

Best part of traveling for me has always been to incorporate a cooking class. Spent a lot of time reading reviews from different offerings and selected Le Foodist. It was probably one of the most informative, refined, comedic classes I’ve taken. Fred was terrific. Explained things very clearly for all levels of cooks regarding cooking processes and tied it to chemistry in a way that made sense. Besides food selection, be ready to laugh and learn with his abundant historical knowledge and take on Paris and the behaviors of Parisians. It is a hands-on class. No disappointments here.

This class made it personal and memorable, like a museum can't

This is our third class with Le Foodist and we can't wait until the next one! Frederic provided an excellent menu, with patient explanations, meaningful stories, and he worked with us to create this amazing (and delicious!) meal. He was quick to notice particular areas of interest in our group and gave each of us the time we needed to really understand and appreciate the process, background and ingredient. We also loved his energy and sense of humor! While we love all that Paris has to offer, this class made it personal and memorable, like a museum can't (and we've already tried a couple of the recipes at home!)

I would highly recommend this experience

This was such a great way for me to spend a rainy day in Paris. Learning things about French cooking that I could actually do and use was like taking away a wonderful unseen "souvenir. Fred was a wonderful host and teacher. Sitting around the lunch table afterwards and just having a nice discussion with other members of the group was also fun. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to spend a great day learning, eating, and socializing with some great people.

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.
