Have you ever dreamed of taking a French cookery class? Interested in mastering the mysteries and methods of cooking in a French style with the aid of an expert chef? Are you an amateur or experienced cook looking to improve your skills, expand your culinary horizons or simply gain an insight into the world of French gastronomy?
Cook’n With Class is a popular Parisian cookery school with a difference. In addition to offering an eclectic range of classes taught by a diverse team of professional, English-speaking chefs, the emphasis on teaching in an informal, friendly, and above all fun style creates an environment naturally conducive to learning. Moreover, along with the option of one-to-one tutoring the restriction of group sizes to a maximum of six per class creates a very intimate, interactive and hands-on experience that is lost in larger class settings.
Discover the tried and tested techniques, the delicate finesse involved in making the various types of dough and pastries used in baking French breads, croissants, and classic French desserts. Take a guided shopping tour of the amazing food markets from an insider, local perspective (after which you will help concoct a sumptuous 4-course meal from all the purchased ingredients). Make macarons. Unlock the secrets behind some of the best wine and cheese pairings. Learn about molecular gastronomy. These are but a taste of what’s included in the school’s repertoire.
A number of themed culinary packages are also available with bundles of classes offered at a discounted rate:
‘Sweet and Beautiful’, as the name suggests, is a 2-3 day course focusing specifically on sweets and desserts, with macarons, crème brûlée, molten chocolate cake, and a choice between making gourmet chocolate or proceeding to advanced desserts comprising the main culinary features.
Alternatively, the ‘Best Sellers’ package incorporates an excellent selection of the most popular classes rated by past students on Trip Advisor, such as the Morning Market Class and French Desserts, which were both an instant hit right from the moment they were introduced.
For the ultimate culinary adventure in the heart of the food capital, ‘A Week in Paris’ incorporates 5 classes spread over 5 days covering the fundamental tenets of French gastronomy.
Cook’n With Class is nicely situated on rue Baudelique in a residential part of the artistic, village-like hub of Montmartre in the 18th arrondissement, just a short stroll away from the steps of the Sacré-Coeur Basilica and a host of outstanding local fromageries, patisseries, boulangeries and food market streets, such as rue du Poteau. The school is easy to reach by bus and is ideally located just over a block away from three metro stations; Simplon, Jules Joffrin and Marcadet-Piossoniers.
