Learn the art of French cooking in the heart of the Montmartre district during a hands-on cooking class taught by a professional chef. Start by meeting the chef at a Paris market, and create a seasonal 4-course menu together from raw ingredients. Visit a butcher, fish monger, cheese shop, bakery, and vegetable shop, and take everything back to the cooking school, where you'll prepare your meal. Then enjoy your lunch or dinner—a nonstop learning process from the market to the plate. All food and wine is included. Class size is limited to seven people to provide a small-group experience.

NOTE: Please be aware that this class runs either in the morning (from 9 am), or in the evening (from 5pm). Pay careful attention to the time you are booking.

What to Expect
Meet in Paris’ 18th arrondissement for your morning or afternoon tour and cooking class during which you prepare a seasonal 4-course menu from the freshest Parisian ingredients as you learn about the art of French cooking. Class size is limited to seven, so you are guaranteed an intimate and informative experience. During this exclusive, one-of-a-kind culinary masterclass, you meet a professional chef in the heart of Montmartre. From there, you visit local cheese, produce, and butcher shops with the chef, on the hunt for top-quality products. After your market visit, you head to a local cooking school to begin your hands-on lesson in preparing an authentic French meal, which covers everything from amuse-bouche to dessert. Once you’ve perfected the recipe with instruction from the chef, sit back with your classmates to enjoy a leisurely dinner, topped off with local wines and cheeses for a truly authentic Parisian culinary experience—made from scratch.

Patrick was delightful! I enjoyed every minute of our educational adventure through the markets selecting fresh bread, produce, meat, cheese and seafood. The class was hands on and a true dining experience. A highlight of our trip to Paris.

Hello Robin, Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your French market class with chef Patrick. Yes, the premise of this class is that your input helps shape the menu as does what is fresh and seasonal at our local market. While you don't need to come prepared with any specific dish you wish to make, you should be ready to jump in to let the chef know what ingredients you like (or don't), and feel comfortable pointing out the fruits, vegetables, and proteins that peak your fancy at the market. We'll look forward to seeing you next time you are in Paris. Best regards, Chef Eric Fraudeau
