A French cooking class in Paris where the food market sets the menu! Our concept for our French Market Class in Paris has always been simple, we let you and your fellow classmates’ taste and what is fresh and in season, menu determine what we’ll cook that day. The menu, therefore, is not decided in advance. We will let the seasons and the fresh produce available at our local market shape our meal. You and your fellow participants will interact with each other, the vendors, and your chef to choose the best products and transform them into a delicious meal.ย  At the end of the cooking class, we sit down and enjoy the 4-course meal together including a fine selection of cheeses paired with excellent French wines.

We offer our French Market Classes in the morning and in the evening, 5-6 days a week, giving you ample opportunities to partake in a French Market Class in Paris. The only difference between our AM & PM classes is lunch or dinner.
