Imagine strolling through a French market, picking up the perfect ingredients for a delicious French meal with the help of an expert on French food and fellow enthusiasts, and then cooking all of that seasonal fresh produce in a beautiful kitchen.
Did you know there are close to 90 open air food markets operating in Paris – all of them with their distinct personalities? We love to take advantage of these!
If you want your Paris experience to include a food tour and cooking class in English, then our French Market Tour and Cooking Class is the one for you! This Paris Cooking Class is in English and is a four-hour experience that focuses on exploring the local open air markets here in the city of Paris. We begin the class directly at the market where you will tour the market and pick out your produce with your guide/chef. You will of course learn all about the products: seasonal vegetables, meats and poultry, cheeses, etc! Together with the chef, will we then pick what we will cook for the day - all depending of the season and taste of the group. Every market is an unique experience. We take responsibility for buying all of the products on the market – you just take responsibility for asking questions and being curious!
Our kitchen is located just around the corner of the market and once we are there, the cooking begins. We will then work together in order to realize the menu. The chef will show and guide you through the class. Once you have done all the hard work creating the meal, you get to enjoy the fruits of your labour over a glass of wine, conversing with you fellow enthusiasts. What else do you need for a perfect day in Paris?
Is your French a little rusty? Do not worry: all of our classes are taught completely in English!
