Croissant Class in Paris

oin our Croissant Class in Paris, and let one of our Pastry Chefs, using some of the finest ingredients, show you how to bake the quintessential Parisian buttery (and some will say decadent) Viennoiserie: le croissant. The complexity resided in making this leavened pastry dough with a perfect lamination. A technique a classically trained French pastry chef – and you after this baking course - would reapply to make Chocolate Croissants, Kouign Aman or even Mille Feuille (aka Napoleon).

Definitely would recommend it to everyone!

My daughter and I took a bread baking class with Florence, and it was so much fun. Florence was patient and fun and explained it all so well.

Excellent Family Bread Baking Experience

My family of 5 (including our 12 yr old daughter, 12 yr old son, and 15-year-old son) had the amazing time taking a Baguette/ French bread baking class at Le Foodist with Chef Florence. We learned the art of baking baguettes, ciabatta, and brioche, and we all were very hands on creating our own breads. Florence was patient and engaging, and she had a wonderful sense of humor too, all of which made for a perfect and fun experience for the kids and adults alike. We have since even used one of the recipes at home! It was such a memorable highlight of our trip, and I would highly recommend this class!
