About Us

Who We Are

French cooking school Paris – Our story started in 2007: Cook’n With Class Paris opened with one studio and one chef in the heart of Montmartre and has since welcomed well over 30,000 students in our Market, Baking, French Desserts, Wine, Foie gras, bread & croissant classes to name a few. This is more than a French cooking school in Paris, it is also a place to have fun, explore the best in French cuisine and interact with people from all over the world.

Chef/owner Eric Fraudeau and his team of international Chefs bring a wealth of experience and a real passion for cooking that is contagious.

With a unique urban design the school (created by Yetunde Oshodi-Fraudeau), welcomes you in three ateliers, Paris, Lyon & Bordeaux, in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The maximum number of students per classroom is 6-8 depending on the class, with our wine classes able to accommodate up to 10 participants. We keep things small for one good reason: so that everyone can get hands-on experience and enjoy the fun.

You will soak up their abundant knowledge as they entertain & educate you about French cooking. Whether it’s sourcing fresh and seasonal ingredients at the French market for the French Market cooking class or baking up flaky, buttery croissants in the other classes, you will learn a variety of recipes that you can recreate at home to share with your family and friends.

We also offer private lessons for those wishing to take their cooking to the next level as well as possibilities for groups for events or special occasions.

All of our cooking classes in Paris also include a traditional apéritif to appreciate true French hospitality!

Generosity has always been a key principle at Cook’n with Class and we continue to share our passion with you at our second location in the south of France, Cook’n With Class Uzès at the doorstep of Provence.

Why Paris? This is where is often starts for star-gazed lovers of French food & wine and it was no different for us – this is the capital after all. Paris is always buzzing with the latest food trends and best restaurants and finest wines. Many chefs have come to make their mark in the city of light. Some accidental journeys lead to years of cherished moments.

Paris is where it’s happening. Paris is now. Paris is forever.
