Many people who visit Paris develop a love of the food they encounter here. For some it is enough to enjoy the cooking of fine restaurants or charming bistros, but others decide that they must learn how to cook this wonderful cuisine themselves. French cooking has many techniques to master, so unless you are fluent in the language it makes a lot of sense to find Paris cooking classes in English. This will remove the language barrier to your learning and help you to master the challenging skills of French cooking much more easily. At Le Foodist we offer just such courses, with more features to help you learn quickly.
It isn't just the English language tuition that makes our courses different. We believe in taking a comprehensive approach to teaching our students about French cuisine. That approach sees us begin our Paris cooking classes in English by talking the language of the market. Visiting the food market we teach our students about the basis of all good cooking: choosing the best ingredients available. Selecting the finest produce helps us decide what to cook and ultimately shapes our menu for the day. Then it is back to the kitchen to start the cooking.
At Le Foodist, we believe that to fully understand the food of any country, one must understand the context in which it is cooked. That means enjoyable discussions on the origin of dishes and ingredients throughout our Paris cooking classes in English. Conversely, we also think that understanding French food is the best way to understand French culture and happily our students develop a deeper knowledge of both. Our teaching style is relaxed and informal but still professional and thorough. You will develop a sound foundation for your cooking by learning some of the core techniques of French cooking, while our unique teaching tools ensure that you learn quickly and retain your knowledge.
We hope that our classes stretch our students and give them new skills but it is not all about hard work. After the cooking is finished our Paris cooking classes in English continue with a three course meal and matching wines. Here we enjoy together the food we have cooked and discuss further how the culture and history of France has given us the great dishes we see before us.
