Chef Eric Fraudeau

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.

To inaugurate our upcoming bread master class, chef Eric talks a bit about the history of bread making and the good, the bad, and the ugly in the breads we eat almost daily.
