Bread Making
Classes in Paris

In this introduction to making Baguette and other breads from scratch you will learn all the basics.  Proportions, techniques and steps to make bread will become clear.  You will start with the humble Parisian baguette with only four ingredients: flower, water, yeast, salt.  And after going through the basic motions you will be ready to make the dough even more interesting.  Simply with fat at first - oil; and make Ciabatta.  And then will butter and eggs and make Brioche.  All these you will then taste with cheese, sliced hams, butter and wine.  And your Chef will even cook you our own version of the Pain Perdu - a classic also known as French Toast.  But this might be the most delicious version you will have, before leaving with bags of your own bread of course.

The perfect baguette!

I took the bread-making class with Frederick and I couldn’t be more pleased! At the beginning I asked if he would teach me the secret to making a baguette with a great crunchy crust. He promised and he delivered on his promise! Our baguettes were restaurant quality. Equally good—if not better—was the brioche we prepared. To. Die. For. I am so excited to try these recipes in my own kitchen! Frederick was charming, informative, and attentive to all our needs. At the end of class we sampled all our products with butter, cheese, jam, honey, coffee/tea, and of course wine! Excellent experience, highly recommend!!

Croissants Making
Classes in Paris

In any Croissant baked at Le Foodist - regular or chocolate - there are at least 81 and up 324 layers of dough and butter.  How to make that happen is what we will teach out.  You will make your dough from scratch, learn how to encase wonderfully tasting French butter in it, and create those layers, make the croissants themselves.  And while obviously there are tricks to all this, we will be happy to share.  Last but not least, it will finish with a delicious tasting of your own freshly baked croissants, before leaving with boxes full of them.

Exquisite Croissants!

Outstanding experience! Amanda is an experienced baker and great teacher. Every minute was productive even with this time consuming recipe. There were so many new techniques taught and new baking items to buy back at home (pastry broom/brush is my favorite). I have just made my first batch back at home and Amanda's teaching was so good that there are only minor mistakes (all my fault). And they also taste exquisite. I cannot wait to return to learn to make eclairs.

Chocolate Eclairs
Classes in Paris

Mastering the art of pâte à choux is a great skill you will have for life.  From the most delicious Chocolate Eclairs to the choux which are so good when filled with crème chantilly - or when elongated filled with regular custard, infused with vanilla or chocolate.  This is also the basis for the classic French wedding cake, know as Croquenbouche, and the Burgundian Gougères - overall a classic technique you will love to use again and again.
