Paris Evening Cooking Class Including 4-Course Dinner and Optional Market Visit
For a more complete cookery experience, upgrade to the 6-hour class. Begin in the mid-afternoon with a visit to an open-air food market near Paris' Latin Quarter. Wander the stalls and markets with your instructor and admire the range and quality of produce on sale. Pick up the ingredients you’ll need to prepare your meal, then head to the cookery school to start planning and cooking.
During your 2-hour cooking time, follow your menu plan and enjoy a glass of wine or two as you work. With your 4-course dinner ready, head into the dining area with your fellow cooks to enjoy the delicious meal you’ve prepared. With half a bottle of white and red wine to complement the flavors, sample one French cheese and learn the fine art of pairing food with wine.
After your meal, listen as your host sheds light on the traditions and customs concerning French culture and cuisine. Food is a huge part of the French national identity and plays a strong role in the country’s history, geography and sociology.

The Foodist Market visit and Evening cooking class was a perfect addition to our week in Paris. Fred, the Chef and host, was highly knowledgeable and presented that knowledge in a fun, humorous, and accessible manner. He made the whole evening very enjoyable, was friendly and engaging, and offered tips, history and culture notes that greatly added to our understanding of what we were doing. The evening had a family meal feel to it that was fun for everyone. The food was also wonderful I have been back for less than a week and have already made it again with the recipes provided : If you have the time, do the market visit as well. The selection process and information provided about the food and wine was also very valuable. I can recommend this class without reservation.
The cooking class was wonderful. We had a group of eleven people, from three countries. Chef Fred was knowledgeable and humorous. We divided into groups, and cooked a delicious meal. I wouldn't pay for the market visit again, though, because it was basically a visit to an indoor grocery store, rather than the outdoor market we were expecting.
