French Market


The French Cooking Class in Paris of your dreams – Imagine going to a French market with a professional chef as your guide, choosing whatever fresh ingredients you would like to eat and then, with the expert attention of your instructor, creating a delicious 4-course menu, based on what you’ve selected together! Your Morning French Market Class begins as it should, at the market, with your learning how to select top quality seasonal products and discover places where typical Parisians do their daily shopping. Du marché à la table . . . From Market to Table.

After the visit to our local market, a 5-minute walk and you are at our school. You will find yourself in our beautiful kitchen atelier, all setup and ready for your lesson, with aprons, chopping boards, and chef’s knives. Under the chef’s guidance, you will prepare from scratch a starter, main course, and dessert. Don’t be stressed – we totally understand you may not spend as much time in the kitchen as we do so we will be happy to teach you everything. Whether you are a culinary novice or a kitchen pro – you can’t ask for a better beginning of your culinary adventure!

Your hard work will be rewarded with a delectable French meal served fine-dining restaurant style and accompanied by an exquisite selection of cheeses and great French wine. While enjoying the food, you will be able to ask our chef any of your lingering questions. We believe that there is no better way to discover a country’s culture than through its food, so why not take this great opportunity?

From Market to Table 

Learn what it is like to shop, cook and eat like a Parisian with a market visit and cooking class. You will create the menu with the Chef, learn the secrets of selecting top quality produce from the market, and prepare these ingredients in a hands-on cooking class followed by a meal.

The menu 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.  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.
