City Guide: Paris
Cooking Classes at La Cuisine
Cook like a local at La Cuisine when you source seasonal ingredients straight from the market.
This cooking school is one of the best for food enthusiasts visiting Paris. While there are many offerings—from learning techniques to honing your skills in le mielle feuille (puff pastry)—our top pick is La Cuisine’s French Market Tour and Cooking Class.
What to Expect:
This informative and entertaining class kicks off with the fundamentals of French cuisine followed by sourcing of-the-moment ingredients. Rather than sit in the classroom for the entire lesson you’ll experience a guided excursion through the picturesque Marché Monge picking out provisions and produce while learning a few key terms, meeting vendors, and knowing proper purchasing etiquette. Then off to the kitchen to hone your techniques and prepare a traditional French feast to be savored as one big happy family at the end of class.
