Do you love to cook? Have you never cooked? Either way, this is so much fun. Frederic teaches how to be inspired by fresh ingredients at the market and build a menu around that. Le Foodist is easy to find; the entire experience is well...More

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.

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
