Julie, our pastry chef was amazing!! I highly recommend this pastry course. It was a fun and very informative for both me and my husband. We also got to take home everything we baked. I will enroll again next time when I’m in Paris.

Delightful afternoon in Paris with my family! Noemi was very engaging and guided us through 3 recipes with seasonal ingredients. Everyone participated, based on their skill level. Even my teenage niece hard to please had a great experience. We also learned a lot about French culture around food/pastry. We highly recommend this experience!

What could be better than a French pastry class in Paris? There were only six of us in the class so we got lots of individual attention and I needed it. Our instructor was patient but she made sure everything was done correctly. I learned many new techniques that I can use in my own kitchen. And best of all we made beautiful little delicacies that we could take home to share.

Julie, our instructor, is exactly what one could hope for when taking this type of course - she is patient, highly skilled, personable, and has a great sense of humor. My husband and I learned how to make madeleines, a chocolate ganache tarte, and a mini layer cake. They all turned out very good! What most impressed me was that Julie took the time to show us the little everyday tricks that chefs use from how to properly use a pastry bag neither my husband nor I had ever used one before, how to briskly whisk something without getting your arm tired, how to pour something into the mixer without spilling a drop and creating a mess, etc. This course is a souvenir you will never lose or forget, plus you can use the skills/recipes you learn to bring a little bit of Paris to your friends and family.

This was a fabulous class! The kitchen was large, spacious, and set up in indiviudal stations so that each student could practice everything. Everything was set up so that all I had to do was the cooking itself. I was the only student! But the chef was very patient and an excellent teacher! She was Cordon Bleu trained and had worked in a large hotel. I left with a large box of pastries--all fabulous!. My only suggestion is to make it clear up front that you have to get to the class on your own. The kitchen was not easy to find and not very near a metro line.

I was fortunate to have others cancel so had the class to myself - it was amazing to spend time, to ask questions, and for my fellow companions, to take back the results of a couple of hours of effort. It was one of the highlights of my time in Paris.
Glad that I had checked the map directions on-line prior to going because street names are not always where you need them to be.

This course is worth every penny! We made croissants and pain au chocolat. The chef was very professional and helpful and spoke perfect English. After returning home I was able to follow the recipe to make some for family and friends.

My friend and I had a great experience taking this course. It was in a very clean and up to date kitchen. The chef provided an excellent learning experience providing my professional baking techniques. She answered questions and provided a relaxed environment. The class was very interactive. If I return to Paris I certainly would book this type of class again.

The pastry produced during the class was amazing and so delicious that my partner simply loved it. It was worth every cent attending the class and I would definitely sign up for another class next time I am in Paris.

Totally totally amazing, loved every minute of the two courses I did. Would go back to Paris just to be taught by the teacher. The only thing I found a little difficult was to find the place, if you didn't have an actual street directory (not just a tourist map of Paris) the street was hard to find. It would be a good idea for Viatour to include a small detailed map of location when your booking is confirmed.

This class was so fun! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make puff pastry and desserts. It was such a memorable experience and such a nice break from the "tourist" sites. Highly recommend taking a morning off for some great fun!

Everything we hoped it would be! Our instructor was not only warm and inviting, well-trained in the art of pastry making, but also kid friendly (10 and 12). The class flowed nicely, was fun and we left with yummy pastries. Would highly recommend.

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.

Amazing Experience.
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!
