It all starts with a warm cup of tea or coffee before jumping right into the crafting of your own Buttery Croissant, Pain au Chocolat (or chocolate croissant) and the Pain au Raisin ! Small groups of 8 allow the chef to follow closely how you learn new skills and knowledge.

First, discover the equipment, the ingredients, and the theory behind the making of the croissant. You will be making it from scratch with quality ingredients we selected from our local producers.

Then kneading the predough is where it all begins. You will provide the last ingredient with the rolling pin as you roll out the finished dough from which you will shape your own pastries! Time will do the rest while they rest and bake.

It all ends well with the tasting of what you have baked and the always instructive chat about your trip to Paris. We, as chefs, are very happy to give you our culinary advice, recommendations, and opinions and also learn from you. Don’t forget to take away the leftovers!

"French Croissant", "Pain au chocolat" & "Pain au raisin" hand-made and freshly baked? We will provide the apron and utensils you need to craft your own. The techniques guaranteeing a successful baking come with full explanations and your hands will do the rest:
- Making and kneading the dough
- Shaping
- Baking and tasting
- Tips & advice for proper proofing and resting of the dough.

Step-by-step your first ever croissants will appear in your hands. You will be in control of your creations from start to finish, from the moment you lay eyes on the recipe to the time you take your creations out of the oven.

The whole thing was just fantastic. Our teacher was brilliant and the whole group was really nice people. And, the pure enjoyment of eating them straight from the oven at the end was just awesome. Totally recommended.

Our family had a truly memorable experience learning how to make croissants. The instructor was excellent and fun. And now we have the skills to make croissants at home...what's better than that!?!

Sarah was amazing! She asked questions to engage us in the knowledge of baking croissants rather than just give us instructions. She was encouraging of our efforts and gave direction make them perfect. Both my adult daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

I really enjoyed coming to this class as I am not into the museums or art. You not only learn how to make them, but you also get to take the crossants with you. It was a great opportunity to meet other people as well as receiving the recipe and learning about the difference between US and UK butters.
