Le Foodist is THE BEST! On our trip to Paris, my friend and I took multiple cooking classes. Le Foodist was BY FAR the best of the bunch and should be rated #1 on this site forever. First, the location on a quiet side street...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendor 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

Hi. Casual, comfortable clothes. I think closed shoes would be best because of the equipment used but I don remember if it was required.

Cooking Class (16 Replies)
I'm considering a cooking class for my next trip. I've narrowed it down to La Cuisine and Le Foodist. I'd like to do the one where you shop at the market, then cook, then eat. Does the group get to choose the menu? I'm a little bit picky, I'm willing to try new things, but there are things I definitely don't like (and I'm allergic to white fish). Has anyone done a cooking class with either of these places? They look so similar, I'm not sure which to choose.

I did the market class (morning) with La Cuisine and can recommend it. The group did make the decision about what we were going to fix and it was a white fish of some sort, wasn't my choice but I`m not allergic, and enjoyed it. My advice is to let the school know that you are allergic to white fish and remind the "chef" when you are at the market. My take is that they have a pretty good idea of what they want to prepare before they get to the market, even though the group gets some input, so...More
