Full description
Discover some of the secrets to French cuisine at a small group cooking class in Paris. Held in the Latin Quarter, the class is typically limited to between 3 and 7 people to keep things intimate and personal. You wlll be welcomed at 10:30 once your hosts have returned from a local market armed with fresh produce for you to cook. Head to the kitchen and start building a menu based on what ingredients were available. This will include an appetizer, main course, and dessert using classic French techniques, such as ice cream and wine sauce. Learn how to plan a meal, and what can be prepared in advance. In total you will learn about 6-8 different techniques. After about 2 hours of cooking - fortified with a glass of wine or 2 - it’s time to enjoy a delicious meal, paired with red and white wines and generous servings of cheese. Sitting in the beautiful setting, you will be joined by a native Frenchman whose complete mastery of the English language will help him share stories about French food and culture. Lunch typically finishes at around 15:00 - but nobody will be rushing you out the door!
  • A hard copy and an electronic copy of all recipes in English
  • A 3-course meal, with cheeses, and red and white wines
  • Use of all cooking equipment and an apron

    I had a great experience. It was fun. We laughed a lot and met new and interesting people. Our teacher, Fred was just wonderful. He’s a really good teacher, very knowledgeable with a warm charming personality. Learned a lot. I hope to do it again. Thanks for the experience.

    My husband and I very much enjoyed our full day class with Chef Fred. We learned a lot of great techniques we can use when cooking other dishes as well, but the chosen menu gave us an authentic peek into how French cuisine is truly meant to be enjoyed. The facility was pristine, and as an added bonus, we met a lot of great people that were great fun. Beats a day of shopping and museums anytime. I would recommend this to anyone.

    Fred is outstanding - combination of "show and tell" and "now you do it." Teasing sense of humor, French sensibility of course, and charming. The four course lunch we created as his sous-chefs was delicious, especially the apple tartan (tartan aux pommel).
