Living in France

WICE is proud to offer courses that will show you how to master the French art of ‘savoir vivre’.

The French lifestyle has always been associated with a sense of style that is unique to their culture. While most of us were not born with that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ quality that comes so effortlessly to our Gallic compatriots, we can certainly try to learn some of their secrets.

Classes are currently divided into two main categories:

  • Le Vin Français: which incorporates all things related to French wine, headed up by two wine experts who have a unique view on French wines and all that encompasses.
  • Cuisine Francaise: which provides an expert chefs view on typical French cuisine, and how to prepare these wonderful dishes at home.

Help us keep this department vibrant and exciting by sending us your ideas for  subjects and classes you would like to see included. Email us at livinginfrance@wice-paris.org.

    Everyone knows that wine and cheese are amazing together. But what makes this classic combination such a winner? Is it "art" or "science" or both?

    Learn the art and science of cheese and wine pairing starting with a History of Cheese. Discover different styles and tastes that create and enhance the traditional culinary links to regional wines.

    You will have the opportunity to taste 8 diverse cheeses along with 4 select wines. Learn which combinations work for you as you develop a taste for wine and cheese pairs.

    To celebrate WICE 40th anniversary, A fine Champagne will be enjoyed as an enticing aperitif.

    Exclusive to Wine tasting and in keeping with the spirit of WICE 40th year, the 4th person to pay to register for this course will receive a 4 euro credit for their next WICE registration. Wine tasting courses fill rather quickly so register early.

     Crusty fresh baguettes will be served with the wine and cheeses.

    About the instructor: Hélène Goble comes from a wine-producing family in Bordeaux and organizes wine tasting events and annual wine tours of Bordeaux and Champagne.  As well as presenting wines, she will introduce you to the French ’savoir-vivre’ and secrets of wine selection that will impress you.  She is a graduate of the Wine and Spirit Education Trust in London.
