This was the best Viator tour we have taken! It was fantastic and we learned so much about French bread-baking! Now we are anxiously awaiting receiving copies of the recipes so we can try baking more bread! We loved this 'hands on" experience!
Very delicious croissants!!! The staff where really nice and friendly,I would
Do it again.
This workshop was one of the highlights of our holiday in Paris. Our family had wonderful fun whilst being taught the secrets to the perfect baguette and croissant. The baker and the translator worked beautifully together and we can not recommend this highly enough. Also, our take away treats were very tasty!
This class was simply amazing and more fun than we could have imagined. The coordination between the baker (who doesn't speak English) and our guide, Solene (who was translating) was excellent, so that one always kept pace with the how and why of the process. I attended with my daughter and grandaughter, so there was quite a span of ages, and we all agreed the workshop was one of the highlights of our trip. Even if you don't think you'll ever actually make a baguette at home, (and we're going to give it a try,) this is just too much fun to pass up.
Possibly the BEST thing we have ever done in Paris!! We had a fabulous time and it was a privilege to have the full attention of someone who is so passionate about his products. We learnt heaps but just being able to watch a master baker "do his thing" was priceless. An amazing morning - thank you!
What a morning! How fabulous! One of the best things we did in Paris - a must for every person with a love of the French and French people. A real hands on, fun learning experience - don't hesitate it is worth the money and more!
We had a wonderful baking experience. It was hands-on with excellent instruction. Our translator, Antonia, was very knowledgeable and shared interesting history of baguettes and croissants. They were very patient with us and we laughed a lot! Our only disappointment was that the recipes are not detailed enough and we had some difficulty converting measurements to U.S. We highly recommend this Paris experience!
The opportunity to have a hands on class with an award winning artisan French baker is not to be missed. Even if you don't make your own bread, you will gain a better appreciation of what makes a great bread or pastry. Loved Dittier's humour and his passion for his craft is mesmerising.
This was FANTASTIC. What a great way to see the real Paris. Lovely family owned bakery with tips by one of the top ten Baguette bakers in France. It could be intimidating not to know much of the language, but Antonia was a great translator and Diddier was a very patient teacher. Would love to take another class.
I did 3 tours back to back and this was by far the best one. Really personal, very hands on and such great tips I would never have known. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
We enjoyed our time with this experience. It was fascinating and fun. However, the cost was far above the value received.
Initially an error was made and we were sent on a tour of a bakery instead of the hands on course. We found it to be very good, but wondered about the difference between the description of the workshop and what we had experienced. By the time we got back to our hotel there was a message waiting for us and when we called the tour company back they apologized and said they had sent us to the wrong tour. They offered us another workshop at no charge and we accepted. The workshop was wonderful. The expert baker was very entertaining, very easy going, and very funny. He did not speak english, but through the interpreter and fundamental french we communicated easily. We learned the insider secrets of french techniques in making the two types of baguette, french pastry, and croissant. Be prepared though.. the techniques are somewhat elaborate. We were glad we took the initial tour as it gave us a leg up. If you have a passion for good food and an interest in making good food you will surely enjoy.
Fun and interesting . Chef was very nice and enthusiastic for his craft but we were not sent the recipes/notes afterwards so not happy about that
