Cooking has become very popular in Paris in the past few years and the number of classes has increased tenfold since I’ve been here, leaving a dizzying number of courses to choose from.  I’ve taken several classes and love to cook, so when invited to attend a cooking class at Guy Martin’s Atelier with a group of bloggers in Paris, I immediately said yes.

The class began at 12h30 sharp in a beautiful hôtel particulier in the 8th. We grabbed our aprons, washed-up and took our places in Guy Martin’s state-of-the-art kitchen, ready to make the first dish—a tri-colored tomato carpaccio topped with arugula, basil granita, and grilled bread with crisp bacon.

Kitchen Studio, a self-proclaimed “innovative, high-tech culinary club” opens this weekend in a 250m² loft in Boulogne, one of Paris’s twenty-something arrondissements. The inaugural weekend hints of several surprises with a series of cooking classes, demonstrations and workshops—all free—starting Saturday at 11am and running through out the day, culminating at 19h00 with a culinary spectacle by “Les Coqs en Pâte“.  Sunday morning gets started with a brunch workshop entitled “So British” and ends with a giant goûter (snack) at 16h00 with the authors of La Cuisine des Papas.

The Studio will then offer daily demonstrations, classes, tastings and other culinary activities in a state of the art workspace which includes a boutique with cookbooks, utensils, seasonal products, spices and the like.

Sounds like a very promising new place for food lovers in Paris.
