Consider having a culinary experience in Paris with Le Foodist. You start with a market tour and then have a cooking class to prepare your delicious lunch. The instruction, food, and conversation were excellent.

Le Foodist Tour And Class
I signed up to do the Market Visit and Cooking Class at the Paris cooking school and it lasted from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. With Fred, the owner/host/chef and 8 others, we went to an open-air market in the Latin Quarter (Marche Maubert at Place Maubert) to pick up the ingredients for the lunch we would be making.
We also visited Laurent Dubois Fromager, given the honour of Meilleur Ouvrier de France (French award for one of the best craftsmen in the category of cheese).
Delicious French Lunch
We spent about 3 hours preparing our lunch chopping, whisking, and stirring various dishes with partners or in small groups. We sat down to a truly delicious meal with red and white wine. We ate like the French—-taking our time enjoying the food and company.
I will be getting the exact names of each dish and the recipes so please forgive me if I don’t give the dish the appropriate name.
What was unique about this experience was that it was more than just about how to prepare the meal. Fred regaled us with many stories about food, and the culture history of France and Paris. So, it was very educational too! Once again, I have to say I could have licked the plate, particularly at desert-time. Everything was homemade, including the vanilla ice-cream. Here was the menu:
Salmon tartare on marinated turnips
Mashed potatoes with carrots and turnips with chicken coq au vin
Poached pears with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce
I am very happy I did this experience and highly recommend it to others. Now I need to rest for tomorrow’s 20 km race!
