If you've chosen the 4.5-hour class, head to the cookery school in the early evening and meet your instructor. First, plan your 4-course dinner, and then make a start as your instructor shares helpful tips on traditional French cooking techniques.
For a more complete cookery experience, upgrade to the 6-hour class. Begin in the mid-afternoon with a visit to an open-air food market near Paris' Latin Quarter. Wander the stalls and markets with your instructor and admire the range and quality of produce on sale. Pick up the ingredients you’ll need to prepare your meal, then head to the cookery school to start planning and cooking.
During your 2-hour cooking time, follow your menu plan and enjoy a glass of wine or two as you work. With your 4-course dinner ready, head into the dining area with your fellow cooks to enjoy the delicious meal you’ve prepared. With half a bottle of white and red wine to complement the flavors, sample one French cheese and learn the fine art of pairing food with wine.
After your meal, listen as your host sheds light on the traditions and customs concerning French culture and cuisine. Food is a huge part of the French national identity and plays a strong role in the country’s history, geography and sociology. You will receive electronic copies of your recipes after you leave the class.
