What You Can Expect

French Pastry and Dessert Class at L'atelier des Chefs in Lyon

Learn to make a popular French dessert such as profiteroles

Make your own way to the L'Atelier des Chefs cooking school in central Lyon around 15 minutes before your class starts and meet your instructor to discuss the day’s menu.

Under the guidance of a professional chef, set to work creating typical French sweets and get hands on as you master traditional techniques, and learn the art of baking the perfect pastry. Menus change depending on the day and season, so you might be making a summer berry pudding, whipping up decadent chocolate soufflés, or layering flakey mille-feuilles. Or perhaps you’ll discover an age-old recipe for classic macarons (brightly colored meringues filled with cream or ganache), or make pastries like éclairs and profiteroles (cream puffs).

Along the way, pick up plenty of expert tips and tricks of the trade, to ensure you can recreate your favorite treats back home. Once your class is complete, take the time to sample your creations or pack them up to take away with you.

Please note: As this is an authentic French cooking school, the class is conducted mostly in French. The chefs will translate the necessary steps into English for non-French speakers.

This was a wonderful experience - we learnt some great little tips and the three pastries we made were delicious. Lost a star because there was a little confusion at the start of the class because it was advertised in English and French but the chef wasn't aware he would need to teach in both languages, and we were very rushed at the end to get everything finished in time, with the chef taking over and completing some steps rather than working through it ourselves.

Staff were lovely but it was mostly all in french and I was the only english speaking one there, though the chef did stop and ask if I was following ok. We didn't actually cook anything ourselves, and it was a bit confusing as it was mainly watching the chef multitask though 3 dishes in 2 hours, jumping from one to another, and helping him with bits of those. Recipe handouts also in french so going to be a bit difficult to cook. Would have preferred to learn how to cook one dish all myself. C'est la vie.
