A Must for Foodies!
Nov. 2021
This was an amazing experience for both my daughter and I! We took the macaron baking class with Frederic and we had a fabulous time! We learned how to make those delicious little morsels and got some great tips from Frederic on different kinds of macarons. The whole experience was wonderful and Frederic was a great teacher and host. When you are done cooking you get to sit and enjoy the fruits of your labor with your classmates. I would highly recommend The Foodist to anyone looking for a cooking class in Paris.

This was one of our most fun things we did in Paris. Fred was an excellent teacher being very informative but also funny and entertaining. I took this class with my 16 year old daughter and we both enjoyed learning the art of making macarons. I would suggest booking this class when in Paris.

This is my most favorite thing I’ve done in Paris. Fredrique was so friendly, funny, but also a world class chef with tons of experience and patience with each person. Our macarons turned out perfectly and his private kitchen is adorable! I can’t wait to try at home

Try this macaron class!!
Oct. 2021 • Friends
A friend and I did the macarons class with chef Fred and I would 100% recommend! The chef was fantastic - really fun and interactive with the group. The class was perfectly planned - all of the equipment and ingredients were ready to use and the method was explained clearly. There was 8 of us in the group in total which I found to be a great size. At the end, the macarons were delicious and we enjoyed a lovely cup of tea! The class is definitely worth it.

My 13 yr old son and I loved every step of the macaron baking process under Frederic’s expert instruction. He broke down the recipe into easy to follow steps and gave everyone feedback along the way. We loved the process and the delicious treats we created.

A wonderful afternoon in Le Foodist
Sep. 2021
My daughter and I joined the macarons class. and we loved it even more than we had imagined. It was fun to meet the other participants in a nice and relaxed atmosphere. the class then started with very clear instructuctions and good organization, and as we went along it became more and more fun, especially when realizing we were going to make many, many macarons. They also took the time for us as we had lots of questions. we then got to take lots home which was even better. All in all, an excellent experience.

Macaroons are for sharing
Sep. 2021 • Couples
We were greeted as old friends and made comfortable as we waited for one class to end and ours to begin. Frédéric gave us a very clear instructions but also added informative and humorous commentary. We left with many macaroons and shared them with hotel staff, tour guides, Uber drivers and bartenders. They were lived by all. The class was a highlight of our time in Paris and I look forward to returning for another lesson.
