I found this little company on Viator via a video and thought it looked like so much fun. True to the reviews, this is really targeted at American and British visitors as the classes are all taught in English by French chefs. The classes are small and the recipes generally simple enough. They teach classes over lunch and one over... More

I was running ten minutes late because part of the metro was closed down. When I arrived in the neighborhood, the map provided by the owners was terrible. I stopped for directions FOUR times - no one could make sense of the map. When I arrived 40 minutes late, I just wanted my money back. We had already missed the... More

I went to the macaron class all by myself. When you book your class they will always pair you up with someone so you will never feel alone. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes because you will be standing on your feet for at least 3 hours. Don't bring luggage or too much clothing because the space is small. Make... More

Our cooking class with La Foodist was one of the most fun things we did on our recent trip to Paris!! Amanda, our instructor, was friendly, knowledgeable and easy to follow! She knows her French pastries and made the class so much fun and easy! I went with my daughter and my best friend and we all three loved it!... More

Workshop I would recommend to anyone - we were a small group of international people coming to Paris for various reasons but this workshop was a great enhancement of my stay in the city. Very friendly atmosphere, everything was properly explained, we could take the macarons home and what's best - the recipe is working at home too :)

The setting is truly beautiful and the instruction was and system they have set up is really well done and accommodating for all skill levels.

We took an evening cooking class with Frederic on May 17th. Despite being tired after spending a the day at Versailles and joining our small group of mostly Canadian and American tourists late at the market, we immediately were welcomed and started to learn about French food, cheeses and cooking. Our host chef Frederic was knowledgeable, engaging, confident and funny.... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour 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 the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
