What to Expect at Paris Pastry Classes with Le Foodist

Food prepared I  Demoulding Chocolate Sphere

 Hands On or Hands In Pastry? Maybe we should say: hands in ... the dough.  There is no avoiding getting dirty when you cook pâtisserie.  But at the end it is mostly sugar, butter or chocolate we are talking about.  So it's not so bad, is it?.



Parisian Pastry Techniques: Simple techniques are the foundation of any great French meal and French professional cooking certification.  So we cover some of these fundamental techniques in each of our classes. And then we explain a bit of the theory, because we all learn differently.


Tea Salon Area

Tasting and listening to french pastry stories: When the time comes to taste the fruit of your efforts, we will share tea or coffee - and the stories of how these exotic beverages have helped shape the face of the earth, and more modestly Paris.
