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 fresh seasonal produce in a beautiful kitchen.
Did you know there are close to 90 open air food markets operating in Paris – all with their own distinct personalities? We love to take advantage of the variety!
This English-language cooking class 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 stands and pick out produce with your guide/chef. You will learn all about the products available: seasonal vegetables, meats and poultry, cheeses, and more! The chef will help you decide what to cook - all depending on what's in season and the group's preferences. Every market trip is a unique experience. We take responsibility for buying all of the ingredients for the meal – all you have to do is be curious and ask questions!
Our kitchen is located just around the corner from the market and once we are there, the cooking begins. We will work together to create the menu, then the chef will guide you through the recipes. 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 your fellow food enthusiasts. What else do you need for a perfect day in Paris?
Is your French a little rusty? Don't worry: all of our classes are taught completely in English!
