Croissants + Bread + Pastry

Maison Fleuret

It’s not just a cook­ing class (or bak­ing, what­ev­er) but it’s also a his­to­ry class. Learn about where the crois­sant orig­i­nates (p.s. it’s not from France) and of course, learn how to bake them to per­fec­tion. With about 2 and half hours on the clock and a max­i­mum group of ten peo­ple, this class is per­fect to feel like you’re just bak­ing at home. Not only can you try your hand at mak­ing flaky crois­sants, but go one step fur­ther and make some pain au choco­lat as well. The best part [at least if you ask me] is obvi­ous­ly being able to snack your way through the workshop.

A Taste of Paris 

Done at either Miss Manon or Chez Manon bak­ery, this work­shop includes a tast­ing at the start just so you real­ly know what you’re get­ting your­self into. Start off by try­ing out some fresh bread and then work with pro­fes­sion­al pas­try bak­ers to not only make your own crois­sants but bread as well. 

After­wards you get to leave with your own baguette cre­ations [not before devour­ing some nice pain au choco­lat, of course]

Un Croissant a Paris 

The best part of doing work­shops is that you have a trained baker/pastry mak­er there with you to actu­al­ly tell you what to do. What’s bet­ter with this work­shop is that this pas­try chef is diplo­maed. How­ev­er, this does­n’t stop you from becom­ing the chef dur­ing the class! It is locat­ed in a tra­di­tion­al hauss­mann­ian Parisian apart­ment which makes the expe­ri­ence ever so more inti­mate. Not only will you learn the best tips and tricks to mak­ing fluffy crois­sants, but they also give you insid­er infor­ma­tion on Paris as a whole

Le Foodist

Make some of the most but­tery crois­sants in this class. They look to use the best and finest ingre­di­ents on the mar­ket [you are in Paris after all]. You’ll be taught the pre­cise tech­niques to make sure that the leav­ened pas­try dough ends up with a per­fect lam­i­na­tion. These are all skills which they will then tell you that you can reap­ply them in your next French bak­ery cre­ations. You will become a mas­ter pas­try chef in no time…

Meeting the French
