Because my wife had a contagious stomach flu, we could not participate in this activity. It seems as though this would be a great activity, if you are healthy.
WE jumped off the boat after the river cruise and made our way over to the Cooking Class. There were only six of us in the class (a perfect number). We had a most enjoyable 3 hours learning how to make cream filled puff pastries -- and they actually puffed up. We filled some of them with chocolate cream, some with vanilla cream and some we left plain. Each participant took a box of their pastries home. They are supposed to be refrigerated for 24 hours before eating, but we did not have access to a refrigerator in our hotel; however, they were still pretty good the next day. If I was to do this again, it would be nice to have a schedule of what item was going to be featured on what days as she also teaches a class on cakes that I would have loved to take. But how many times would you get the opportunity to take a French Pastry Class. Fabulous!
This was SOOO much fun. I would highly recommend this to everyone that wants to try something different in Paris. My husband and I did this together. It was so much fun to watch him slam and bang the puff pastry dough into shape, since he doesn't ever do any of the cooking. Once we got there, we saw that she offers several other cooking classes- all in ENGLISH- and all looked to be amazing. I wanted to take more of her classes while we were there, but she is super popular and was all booked up. We made Nepoleon's, Palmier's, apple turnovers and the cream for the Nepoleon's. It was fantastic. Definitely book this tour
My wife and 2 daughters did this activity on our first morning in Paris, and we were enjoying the fresh pastries for days!!! They loved the instructor, who was very professional, and fun. The facilities were excellent.
After eating so many treats in Paris you finally get the chance to learn how its made!
Our chef was very knowledgable and let us get a real hands on experience.
Very clean work space but also very relaxing.
Everything was so yummy and now I can share this with my family when I get home!
This class was fabulous! We made crème filled choux, black currant ganache tarts and caramel custard. Our chef was a great instructor and a lot of fun. We got to make everything ourselves and it all tasted fantastic!
Wonderful place. Truly great staff. We had fun and also learned a lot. The chef was really good at explaining and demonstrating every little part of the recipes, and answering all of our questions. I only wish I'd had the time to take more courses with them, but that gives me a reason to revisit Paris at a later date.
Absolutely a great afternoon, small class, full attention from Alex who was really good, really glad we did this. It took some time to work out where it was but not impossible, metro links good.
very enjoyable. The chef Briony was amazing and very knowledgable. the hands on approach is great and the enjoyment you get out of baking something is great. A highlight of my time in Paris.
