              A day in Paris, at Saint Charles market, with Chef Caussimon

              A day discovering paris markets and cooking with a Chef

              What better way to discover all that France’s terroir has to offer than to visit a Parisian market? Fish, cheese, meat, seasonal fruit and vegetables, a kaleidoscope of products, which are widespread in French gastronomy, can be found on market stalls.

              To share this wealth with visitors traveling through Paris, Le Cordon Bleu Paris provides the opportunity to explore one of the capital’s 80 markets alongside one of the School’s Chefs during the Market Tour & Cooking workshop.

              It was on one such occasion, in May, that we spent the day with Le Cordon Bleu Paris Chef Instructor, Chef Caussimon. On the agenda: A visit to Saint Charles market in Paris’s 15th arrondissement.

              The day began with a visit to a typical Parisian market. This provided the Chef with the opportunity to show the participants the most flavorsome seasonal fruits as well as relatively unknown varieties of fish. He even gave a number of tips on how to prepare some of the ingredients found on the market stalls.

              The market tour was followed by cuisine course at the school.

              Only seasonal products were on the menu: Asparagus with a mousseline sauce for the starter, lamb with a parsley crust for the main course and strawberry tart for dessert. The participants whet their appetites with plenty of good advice, techniques and recipes before tasting their dishes.

              At the end of the day the participants left, delighted with all the tips given by the Chef, and with the feeling that they really had learnt a lot more about the everyday life of a Chef and French gastronomy. Even more importantly though, they left with recipes which will enable them to amaze their next dinner guests!
