Cookn with Class Uzes

Cookn with Class Uzes

Cook’n With Class has been in operation since 2007 in Paris offering French Cooking Classes (in English), to visiting tourists and locals interested in learning about this very important part of French culture. The school offers classes from French Market to Bread Baking and Macarons. Chef Eric Fraudeau, who worked both in France and internationally, along with his wife Yetunde Oshodi-Fraudeau, opened their second school, Cook’n With Class Uzès in 2015 in the sunny south of France, this time focusing on Provençal and Mediterranean cuisine. They also offer a 5 day/7-night culinary holiday package (Week in Uzès), including accommodations, with tours, tastings and of course cooking.

A new addition to the Cook'n with Class repertoire are a wide range of options for online cooking classes for those of us who can’t make it to France but are still looking for an authentic French experience.
