Day 5: Paris

Private Morning Market Visit & Cooking Class Followed by Lunch

This morning you will embark on a unique culinary and Parisian cultural experience completely inspired by its gastronomical fare!

You will first be welcomed at a delightful location in the heart of the Latin Quarter with delicious croissants, fresh coffee, and some tea.

At a local market you will have to opportunity to buy fresh produce, and learn about the French market culture, French cheeses (while of course, eating some…!) and discovering the neighborhood along the way. “Market food selection” is the cooking topic least covered in classes or books – yet it is the most critical and at the heart of professional cooking – so why not learn something about it now? Cooking may well be defined as the transformation of finely selected ingredients to make them even more palatable. So, learn to choose the ingredients and why, but also where they come from!

Then, back to the kitchen. For 2.5 hours you will learn basic and advanced French cooking techniques through the process of creating a three-course French meal. You might get to drink a glass of wine or two in the process (for inspiration)! Simple techniques are the foundation of any great French meal and French professional cooking certification. You will cover five to seven of these fundamental techniques as each theory will be explained.

Finally, time for lunch – to which you’ll add white wine, red wine, and cheese, of course!

During lunch, your host will share stories on each of the dishes to help illustrate various aspects of French culture: a bit of history, a touch of sociology, tongue-in-cheek humor, and quite a bit of gastronomy as one might expect. This is quite a unique, intimate, and quite delectable experience in Paris indeed!
