Chef Eric Fraudeau opened his first French cooking school in 2007 in Paris with a passion to share his over 20 years of experience with fellow food lovers from around the world. To truly know the French, you need to know their food. Visiting the markets of France is a good way to start.
It was in a small boutique in Paris’s Montmartre district that is all began with 1 chef and 6 students per class. Now we open a second school where the tradition continues: French cooking classes in a fun, convivial setting, French market tours, wonderful French cheese & French wine. We shop together, we cook together, we eat together.
Tapas, apéro, aperitivo, whatever you call it, this is one delicious class. Come and learn Provencal and Mediterranean small plates to accompany your next cocktail hour. Chef Eric will be your guide throughout our interactive online sessions.BOOK NOW
