One trained by the best pastry chefs in the world--chef, author and owner of the Little French Bakery, Susan Holding. Warm and welcoming in her style of instruction, Mme. Holding filled the day with skilled demonstrations... More

It was like spending a day with family, chatting and learning about bread. So much fun! And very educational and interesting. I really enjoyed my class and the setting as well. I learned a lot, and can't wait to put it to use.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Susan and The Little French Bakery. The day was almost too perfect, from the beautiful scenic drive to the bakery to the informative class and of course Susan her knowledge and effortless teaching skills. I can't wait to come back and take more classes. I have been baking bread for awhile but this... More

My daughter and I spent the day at the bakery learning the ins and outs of making the perfect baguette. We learned so much it's hard to put into words - the flour, the dough, the yeast, the technique. Somehow, something that had always seemed to be a bit of a mystery was demystified in a relaxed fun setting, such... More

The pastries from this bakery are hand made in small batches and sold at farmers markets. The bread is good and crusty, the croissants and pain au chocolat (chocolate croissants) are nice and flaky and buttery. The baker studied at a pastry school in France, and it shows from her ability to bake delicious European style breads and pastries that... More

The Little French Bakery may just be the best Christmas present I have ever received. The setting is beautiful and unexpected. Susan is a exceptional and engaging teacher. The hands-on class was practical and very instructive. I can't tell you how delicious the breads we each baked turned out to be. I never thought I could seriously bake baguettes (... More

Our expectations were exceeded this weekend! Without prior experience with French baking we learned to make wonderful French Breads and Morning Breads & Cinnamon Rolls. Susan demonstrated and fully explained the process as my husband and I, along with 4 others, worked through the steps across the counter from her. Everything was delicious and we took home recipes that we... More

I had so much fun taking a Morning Breads class at The Little French Bakery! We ate a delicious breakfast and lunch and spent the rest of the day baking! Susan was very encouraging, and I picked up some great tips not to mention recipes for all the delicious breads we made! It was a great day, and I learned... More

Recently took the Cinnamon Rolls & Morning Breads class at The Little French Bakery with a friend. The class was all day and included a breakfast and lunch, which I might add were both delicious! In between we baked three different breads with Susan explaining different techniques and steps along the way. It was such an enjoyable experience to spend... More
