The place feels warm and cozy. It’s set up with two large tables so that the classes can have coffee or tea while enjoying the macarons they’ve just created. There’s more than enough remaining so that afterwards each participant can take a box. Stand-out cultural and culinary experience! I learned so many important tips for making macaron and I’m looking forward to my return and trying them at home.

More about our Pastry Classes

All our Pastry Classes are totally hands-on, taught in English, set in a beautiful location, fun and instructive and in small groups. 

France is rightly famed for its particularly rich cuisine. Simple pleasures like French bread and charcuterie vie for our attention with bistro classics and Michelin starred haute cuisine. Another speciality of French cooking is its pastries. It seems every French town and Paris neighbourhood has its own local pâtisserie, serving a wonderful array of tempting delicacies. Conventional wisdom tells us that pastry making requires great skill and accuracy and may be beyond most domestic chefs, but at Le Foodist we offer a pastry class in Paris which defines these conventions. At our 'Sweet Stories' courses, you will learn the secrets of perfect pastries and magical macaroons while uncovering some surprising stories about their backgrounds.

Enjoying sweet success at our pastry class in Paris

Everyone will tell you that precision is the key to good pastry. This means creating a dough mix with exactly the correct proportions of ingredients and then kneading that dough in the right way for the right amount of time. This accuracy even extends to keeping everything at the right temperature. During our pastry class in Paris we will discover exactly which of these is necessary to create perfect pastry as we all get hands on with our dough.

Creating classics at our pastry class in Paris

Our course will teach you how to create the French pastry classics, like macaroons and French, Swiss and Italian meringues. You will learn how to infuse these creations with vibrant colours and luscious tastes as we share with you our opinions of the best pâtisseries in Paris. Our pastry class in Paris continues with the joys of pâtefeuilletée, the basis of many French pastry classics, before continuing with the popular choux pastry. Finally, as our time together draws to a close, we will pause to enjoy our wonderful creations along with some tea and coffee.

A cultural pastry class in Paris

At Le Foodist we always strive to place French food in the context of French culture. We believe that the unique people and history of France join with terroir to produce the classic dishes of France. Our pastry class in Paris features lots of discussion about where food comes from and how it came to be. In gaining a deeper understanding of French culture we, in turn, have more appreciation of French food, resulting in greater enjoyment of both. This approach, together with our brilliant chefs and informal teaching, results in the most memorable culinary experiences.

First things the first. Yes, the macarons are tasty! The guide was really funny and knowledgable. He definitely knew his stuff without being condescending. Definitely go with a friend, though! I went solo for this class and the work is definitely easier (and more fun) with another person. Really, if you like macarons, try this out! You'll come out 30 (or more!) macarons as well as a delicious macaron recipe richer! In addition to great memories! Go for it!

French Desserts
Classes in Paris

In our French Desserts class you will learn how to make four delicious desserts from scratch.  From the thinnest crêpe Suzette to the tallest Chocolate Soufflé, you will know how to prepare your batter, mix your eggs and sugar, infuse your milk with real vanilla, deglaze your caramel and flambé your sauces to make the sweetest desserts - to impress or to enjoy.  Last but not least you will taste them all with a nice sweet wine, tea and coffee.  A very special treat indeed.

Highlight of our trip to Paris !!

What a fantastic experience! We were welcomed right away by Frederick, who made us feel right at home and helped us get ready for the class. He made baking famous French treats (souffle, creme brulee, financiers, and crepes) seem so easy! He had a wonderful attitude and had everyone laughing and chatting throughout the class. The class was easy to follow and the food was delicious, paired with an exquisite bottle of wine and coffee/tea. I would definitely recommend this for anyone visiting Paris!

Chocolate Eclairs
Classes in Paris

Master the art of pâte à choux. to make the most delicious Chocolate eclairs.  The choux which are so good when filled with crème chantilly - or when elongated filled with regular custard, infused with vanilla or chocolate.  Also the basis for the classic French wedding cake, know as Croquenbouche, and the Burgundian Gougères, this is a classic technique you will love.

Excellent !!

I attended the "Croissants" baking class once before - It was Great! so I came back for "Chocolate Eclairs" workshop. The place is inviting, clean and cozy. The instructor is professional, kind and gave us tips for good and varied preparation. To finish off we were honored by the fresh Eclairs that we prepared with coffee / tea and afterwards we received boxes full of Eclairs to take with us. When my kids tried those Eclairs they loved it! A fun and recommended experience : - )

Our family of four (kids 15 and 13) had a lovely time at our baking class today. Fredrick was both charming and knowledgeable. He found the perfect balance between instruction and entertainment. We enjoyed our experience very much. The desserts were both simple and delicious. I would highly recommend this class.
