Trip Report My Cook'N With Class in Paris experience March 16, a Market class

Jump to last reply

I’ve yet to start my Paris trip report for March 10-18 but I thought I would at least get up a bit on my Cook’N With Class experience. People have mentioned them in trip reports, and people have asked about the classes, so I thought maybe a separate post/trip report was in order to make it easier to find.

Quite simply, this was an amazing experience and right up there as possibly our favorite thing that we did in Paris that week (although, honestly, I may have also said that after the dinner with other Fodorites, a trip to the park with my friend and her children, the day with Michael Osman, and the modern circus experience).

One of the things I wanted to do on this trip to Paris was to take a cooking class. I had in mind the sort of class where you visited a market, picked out what was fresh then went back and cooked it all together and enjoyed the meal together.

Then I was lucky enough to read a trip report mentioning Cook’N With Class, and it had pretty much exactly what I was looking for! So, I signed up my friend and myself for the Friday, March 16 Market class.

A side note: I hold no candle to most of the other foodies on Fodors, but I really do enjoy cooking and have taught myself quite a lot over more recent years. I think food and culture are really very interesting, and one of the things (other than having McDonald’s and Subways everywhere you visit in the world) that remain fairly culturally distinct.

If you visit a grocery store in another country (or even in the US, in another state!) it is really very different. If you talk with people about what they cook at home, it really still differs. Going to the markets in Paris? A completely different experience.
