What You Can Expect

Experience Paris: Baguette and Croissant Workshop

Learn how to make your very own French baguettes!

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Of all that we did in Paris this was the best tour. The location was easy to find and our tour guide met us promptly before the tour. She provided significant information about what we were to experience and set the stage for a great time. We were fortunate as there were only two us on this tour and so we had a very intimate and informative time. The Chef was engaging, witty and passionate about the subject. This is truly a hands on event and all the better. Our 2 hour tour turned into 3 and we were provide many opportunities to get 'hands on' with baking. Bring your camera as you will want to take many pictures. As part of the tour the Chef puts you on his email list and sends you recipes, tips and ideas on the topics.
Our Chef was engaging and very supportive of our attempts to "bake the bread". If you're in Paris and done with the typical visitor activities, this is the tour that takes you into the heart of Parisian Life, how to make the Baguette and Pastry.
