Behind the Scenes of a Boulangerie : French Bakery Tour in Paris

Behind the Scenes of a Boulangerie : French Bakery Tour in Paris

Meet your expert guide, a local baker, and venture into the kitchens and production areas of a famous French bakery to find out how proper French bread (pain), cakes (gateaux) and pastries (patisseries) are made.

This is no bread factory, this is an independent Parisian bakery where the work is still done by knowledgeable bakers on a daily basis. Watch as your guide demonstrates how the machinery works and how famous French baguettes are made. Learn the impressive history of French baking as well as some time-honored baking tips. Your baker and guide's passion for French baking comes through.

Along with all of the newfound knowledge you'll gain during this boulangerie tour, you'll also leave with a freshly-baked baguette and croissant to enjoy later. Children on the tour get a pain au chocolat – a chocolate croissant – instead of a plain one.

Fantastic! Very informative and enthusiastic tour guide, loved the hands on aspect. Only complaint is that we were under the impression each person would receive a baguette, not one for our group of four.

We loved this tour that got us 'in the back' of the boulangerie! We took this at the beginning of our trip, the knowledge made it fun as we went into a 'few' others during or time in France.

It was great. The tour guide was friendly, smiley and warm. We got to the watch the bread be made and take home a baguette. We also got to see the inner workings of pastries - -chocolate croissants! Would recommend this to anyone for a quick peek into the world of bakeries and some history too e.g. bakers cannot go on strike.

Very informative and enjoyable ! Our children had a go at rolling their own baguettes and found the experience worthwhile and engaging. They had lots of questions for the staff who answered them knowledgeably and with great patience. We all enjoyed sampling the cakes downstairs and our goody bags of baguettes and croissants kept us going for a couple of days.
Would definitely recommend .
