My 16 year old daughter and i took the croissant making class. It was so much fun. The atmosphere of this place makes you really feel like you are in Paris, and of course you are! The instructions where perfect and easy. We loved and highly recommend it.

This wasn't the first time we have been to a cooking class and we can only sum it up in one word: GREAT. The general atmosphere, the location, the premises, the market, the kitchen, the food, the company and most of all Frederic made it a very enjoyable and memorable experience. Keep up the the passion and love of food... More

My husband and I signed up for the full class; shopping at the market then preparing the meal. I cannot recommend this highly enough. We learned so much, and will be making all of these dishes regularly (well, maybe we'll cut back on the butter a bit). Chef Frederic was able to streamline classic techniques, and kept us on point...

Bonjour djsNewYorkCity, c'est une review magnifique! Merci :-) Because indeed, it is about the food, isn't it? So glad you enjoyed the recipes you made that day, and our streamlining of complex techniques so you can reproduce them at home. Great. Thank you so much Cheers Fred More

Chef was a riot and an amazing cook! Cooked many courses and learned a lot! Sipped wine with some cheese while preparing a meal. Got new info and techniques.

This class was so much fun. Our teacher, Hugo, is a professional pastry chef at a great bakery in Paris and we really got the inside scoop on making croissants the right way. I would definitely take another class here, maybe Wine pairing? That sounds really fun :)

My boyfriend and I took the lunch course this weekend and we had a great time. It was about 5 hours, but the time flew by. Fred was a very enthusiastic and engaging host, with great tips and little anecdotes along the way, and the kitchen was modern and well equipped. We did not attend the market visit but regretted...

My fiance and I went to Paris for our anniversary and chose to visit Le Foodist because we both love to cook. Frederique, was absolutely fantastic and, despite that I cook a lot and have worked as a cook, I still learned a lot! He de-emphasizes the recipes, instead focusing on techniques so that the participants have tangible skills to... More

Bonjour David A, it is so nice to hear that while a (in our opinion, very) experienced cook you still learned a lot. Indeed what people can take home are techniques, tips and tricks. This is what anybody learning how to cook eventually comes to understand. Recipes are just a combination of techniques applied to ingredients to deliver a certain... More

My daughter is living and working in Paris for a year and we've seen most of the city's sights on previous trips, so we were looking for something different. She and I wanted to treat ourselves to a macaron baking class, and we found Le Foodist's 3-hour option via a Google search. We booked in advance and the class did... More

Love the Le Foodist! So informative!! The experience was fun and the food delicious. Our Chef Frederic was fantastic, fun, humorous, and full of wonderful cooking tips. We learned how to select the food from market, prepare, and serve so you look like a five star chef yourself. Our menu included Poire Belle-Helene, Coq au Vin en Ballotine, aka Topinambours... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
