Overview

It all starts with a warm cup of tea or coffee before jumping right into the crafting of your own Croissant and pain au chocolat (or chocolate croissant) and one mystery confection! 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 and Pain au chocolat 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 and 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.

We are professional chefs creating French culinary experiences. Our passion comes from our families and our precision from the chefs we have met. We crafted this hands-on, intimate experience for 6 attendees. Our fully equipped workshop accessible through a private courtyard, hides from the curious wanderer. This building is rich with history as is...the heart of Paris! You will love walking in this iconic neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. A stroll away from our location are the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay.

It was a fantastic experience. We did it as a family and my youngest was able to follow along and participate the whole time. Our teacher Delphine was very good. Highly recommend. The croissants were incredible too!

What a fun experience! ... And tasty! Our Pastry Chef was fun to work with and gave small baking details throughout that made us feel like we were getting real life pro tips! Croissants were delicious and quickly made their way to our bellies. Definitely book this activity if you get the chance! Was a great experience and memory for our trip!

Really really enjoyable experience, despite being a solo traveler. 2 other solo people in the tour. Just know, activity is done in pairs so if alone, you may need to work with a stranger. Location convenient to metro. Leave with delicious treats including 2 croissants, 2 chocolate pastries, shared cinnamon rolls (extra from scraps. No waste is a philosophy here).
