Experience Paris: Baguette and Croissant Workshop
From US$ 130.59
Learn the secrets to making traditional French baguettes and croissants during a 2-hour baking workshop with a chef. Get time-tested recipes handed down over generations, and bread-making techniques that will help you make perfect baked goods. This is a hands-on baking lesson in the back rooms of a French bakery in Paris with group size limited to eight people for maximum personal attention from the instructor for each student. Leave the class with your own freshly-baked baguette to snack on later.
What to Expect
Make your way to your traditional bakery in the heart of Paris, where you'll go into the kitchens for a behind-the-scenes lesson to learn the secrets of French bread.

A Parisian baker guides you through the lesson, during which you'll make two different kinds of baguettes as well as buttery, flaky croissants. Watch as your instructor demonstrates the proper techniques for preparing and handling dough, and then try your hand at recreating what you've just seen — with help as you need it. As you watch and work, listen to your instructor's tips to glean the secrets of French baking.

The pay-off for all your hard work is in taking your own freshly-baked baguette out of the oven and tasting it while it's still warm. When the workshop is finished, you'll have a baguette to take with you for a later picnic, as well as the recipes and know-how to recreate the experience in your own kitchen at home.
