Here’s a cooking class with a difference – a rare opportunity to go behind the counter of a friendly family local Parisian bakery. We go into the kitchen to learn how to create French baguettes and croissants. Our teacher and demonstrator will be the baker himself.
This 2-hour bakery visit and cooking class is very much “hands-on” and you’ll need to roll up your sleeves and plunge your arms into the flour to learn the technique for getting that crunchy golden crust with a soft warm centre.
You’ll have the privilege of watching, step by step, the traditional baguette making process. It’s all the little details that make the difference and as the baker has owned his own boulangerie for years and his father and grandfather before him were also bakers, there are plenty of family secrets which have been passed down from generation to generation to share with you.
You’ll also master the art of making and shaping croissants. The baker will do his explanations and demonstration in French and our translator will be at your side to explain everything in English. You may not understand his language but you will certainly understand his passion and enthusiasm for his job. This is a wonderful way to enter the heart of the French, via their beloved baguette and you’ll be in the hands of a master baker.
