  • Get inside tips from a local
Your French baking workshop starts when you arrive at your Parisian bakery and go behind the scenes to become a baker for the morning. Experience the daily life of a Parisian baker as you learn the secrets of perfecting the classic bread that’s an integral part of French daily life – the baguette.

There are many different kinds of baguettes, and during your workshop, you’ll bake two types, as well another French favorite – croissants. The flour will fly while your watch your expert baker demonstrate the proper techniques, from mixing and kneading the dough to shaping, decorating and putting it in the oven. Then do it all yourself!

The reward for your hard work comes as you bite into your freshly baked baguette as soon as it leaves the oven. When your class is over, you’ll have two baguettes and two croissants to take with you, as well as the recipes so you can do it all again at home.

I arrived to take this class and wasn't sure where the class would be since the bakery was so small, but was pleasantly surprised when we were brought in to the back working area of the bakery. It was a fascinating class and Sara, the translator was excellent. Didier, the baker, explained all the processes needed to make bread, croissants and puff pastry and gladly answered any questions that came up. He allowed us to have as much hands on experience as possible and I learned so much about baking the French way! I can't wait to use my new tips and tricks!

Excellent! A highlight of our trip to Paris. My 9 and 10 year old daughters both loved it, and Didier organised it so that the 3 kids on the course did something that was more specific to them for part of the time.
