Croissant Class in Paris
Join 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).

STEP 3: And then it is time to fold - the right temperature, pressure and motion will all be critical to your success in the first of three foldings.
STEP 4: After multiple folds, the magic of the laminated dough is starting to reveal itself. It is those multiple layers of doug and butter which make the French croissants so special.
STEP 5: The layers are ready to be rolled into the famous croissant - probably a good time to ask your Chef why it has that ... croissant shape.
STEP 6: Now of course you can use that dough to make different types of "croissants" like the famous Chocolate Croissants - which we call Pain au Chocolat.
STEP 7: The croissants now just need to prove a little, and with a little dorure to give it that golden shine, it will time to bake them - the last step before the most important one.
STEP 8: It is time to eat! At long last you are rewarded with warm croissants that you have made yourself - and will now know how to make for all your friends and family!

Had a great time in the croissants course!
Amanda was a great instructor. The place looks neat, elegant and have good vibes in it. I would definitely come back for more next time I'm in Paris ?

I highly recommend the class!
I (and 5 friends) took the croissant making class with Amanda and it was one of the highlights of my time in Paris. I had no idea how many steps were involved in making croissants, but Amanda walked us through them all, giving pointers along the way. It was great learning the process and also picking up some general baking tips and tricks. The croissants we made were delicious and I enjoyed the ones we got to take with us for days. I highly recommend the class and would definitely take another if I find myself in Paris again!

Discover French Culture through Other Food Experiences
Discovering culture through food is what we want to do when we travel. So we have developed all our experiences with that simple idea in mind: ensure that you learn both about the topic at hand, but also about French culture in the process. So in our food tours, we will talk about the history of various aspects of French food, in our cooking class in Paris about how certain dishes became so important in our culture. During our wine tastings, we will explore the regional differences in French culture. And, a regional residential holiday is an opportunity to deep dive French food culture to its core and foundation: the regional gastronomies, and the concept of terroir.
