The cooking class was excellent. Frederique, our chef and instructor was terrific and personable. Would highly recommend this......fun and informative, interesting to learn different nuances of cooking and wine.
This was a fantastic class. Had a wonderful time at the market and drinking wine and making our cauliflower soup, coq au vin, mashed potatoes, glazed carrots and turnips, and poached pear with chocolate sauce and “homemade” vanilla ice cream. Strongly recommend!!

I would absolutely recommend this activity which included a visit to the Marché Monge to buy the freshest of ingredients for lunch, a cooking lesson from the wonderful Fréderic and then a delicious three-course meal with wine. Fréderic is an entertaining and very knowledgeable host, and I will definitely take another course at Le Foodist when I am next in Paris.
A great way to experience the Parisian lifestyle, a cooking class with a visit to the local markets! A great chef in Fred,who was funny and very knowledgeable, a great group of people and the food we cooked was fantastic! Highly recommend.
Our class was fabulous. Highly recommend that you attend the market visit, not just the cooking class. Frederick was fun and a great teacher. We would definitely attend another class there.
I value the skills I learned on this course, like being at chef school. I have loved learning and tasting French cheese during my time in France, and learned even some more from Fred. The cooking class was fun. Fred brought the group together very effectively. Of paramount importance though is that the food was delicious. I have used inspiration from the course several times in my cooking since then already. Thank you Fred.
We had a very amazing time. Very recommended. We met some great people and shared travel experiences. Fred, the chef, is really amazing and very funny. Definitely recommend with market tour, Fred shows us about the local market and introduce us about French culture. The food were really delicious.
Fantastic class. Fred was great and the food awesome. Would recommend it to anyone.
Well, this is my second class to take here.my daughter and I took the croissant class in July and LOVED it! My friend and I came back to Francwthis fall and this class was a blast! You will be tired in a good way afterward. Go hungry. The food keeps flowing.
Five of us joined Fred for this three-course lunch class and we could not have imagined having a more wonderful day! I highly recommend including the market visit in your day if you do this class. It is a fun way to start the day and you begin learning from Fred the moment you step in the door of Le Foodist! Fred is friendly, knowledgable and ready to answer any and all of your questions. On the way to the market we stopped at a cheese shop and got a quick primer on the five categories of cheese in France and then continued on to the market so that Fred could buy the things we needed for the dishes we would be cooking. Everyone gets to participate in the preparation of the various dishes and all along the way Fred is sharing information about French food, culture, technique, etc. He's funny too! We had a wonderful day and we couldn't believe how fast the time went. I highly recommend this class and Le Foodist!
Frederick was our tour guide/instructor for this activity. We opted to take part in the market visit which was well worth the time. Frederick took us to the market explaining the different booths and introduced us to several of the vendors. After explaining the different cheeses, the vendor shared multiple samples that allowed us to taste the evolution from one stage to the next. Our cooking menu had to change slightly due to some of the ingredients not being available at the market. After meeting with the remainder of our class, we cooked a three course meal that was very tasty. The instructions were good and we learned some new techniques. Also, Frederick explained different wines and what to look for. This is definitely a must for anyone interested in this type of class
Cest Bon! Everything was perfection. Fredrique gave us so.much information- both history and food history. Never lost control of a large group. 9. The venue was efficient as well as beautiful. Will certainly recommend.
We absolutely loved this class. The venue was charming, and so was our host Fredrick. We all had a great time making the dishes and listening to Fredrick's infortaining stories. The market tour was very good but the cooking class and the food we made was the best. The five hours passed quickly and there was never a dull moment.
I had a lot of fun in this cooking class and learnt some interesting things. Fred and Frederick, our chefs, were very informative and great teachers. They explained everything so we understood and could definitely go home and show off our new skills. There were 13 people at my class, which was split into 2 groups after the market tour. We then made Mussels Marinieres, Coq au Vin and Peach Melba with Vanilla Ice-cream. The kitchens and dining area were well equipped and nicely decorated. Everyone in the class had a great fun time. Thank you.
This was a great experience learning to cook several different dishes, learning tips you never knew before, and then eating the food with wine and enjoying what you made. The market trip was also great.
This was one of the best experiences I had in Paris. The chef was fun, interesting and knowledgeable! I absolutely loved walking to the open air market. We discovered amazing cheese! The class was also a lot of fun. I met interesting people and learned a few new cooking techniques that will make preparing meals quick and beautiful in presentation. I highly recommend this class for foodies!
A charming cooking school, beautifully decorated in France. I had a fantastic experience with Fredrick during this cooking class. It was my first full day in Paris and I learned how to whip up chicken coq au vin in no time. : In fact, I enjoyed this class so much I came back to take the macaron class later on in the week with Amanda.
Wonderful experience and we learned a couple of very useful things to enhance our future cooking.
Freddie is a delightful host. The wine was good too!
What a fabulous day this was. Chef Fred was most knowledgeable as well as entertaining. We learned new techniques . Totally hands on. And we met delightful new people. Most recommended. Best day in Paris.
Awesome. Chef Fred was very informative and detailed. It was fun, educational, and Historical. Technique is very important and Chef Fred blended everything together in an interesting exciting way.
Best experience ever and the highlight of my trip to Paris. My son and I took the 6 hour class which included the market visit where we got a mini lesson on French cheese and wine. Fred and Frederick were both entertaining and shared a wealth of knowledge on French cooking as well as the culture and history of France. I hope to take another class on my next visit!
This class rocked. I had a blast learning some of the fundamentals of French cooking and considering the amount of time we had we were really able to create something delicious and gorgeous. Fred kept us interested the entire time, and told some great historical snippets as well as some funny jokes. It was the perfect way to learn more about French culture - through its food! Would definitely recommend to anyone with even the slightest foodie tendencies. We had some time to explore during market tour so it was also a chance for me to pick up some fois gras to bring back home for much less than in the States.
This was a wonderful experience! I opted for the market visit and it was a nice walk during which we learned about French cheese and wine. The market itself was neat and we had a little bit to wander if we wanted to.
Once back we got to work peeling, chopping, laughing and enjoying the experience. New ways of cooking and preparing food were learned and I've already started using them! In particular the stock brand Fred uses. It has incredible flavor and I was able to find some before I left Paris and will be sure to purchase more during future trips! it's seriously good!!!
Don't miss this experience!!!
