Overview
While most visitors to Paris get to taste an authentic croissant, very few get to learn how they’re made. Go behind the scenes with a small-group croissant-making class in the heart of the city. Your instructor not only provides the small group with refreshments and a hands-on lesson, but offers little-known tips for getting deliciously flaky results every time. Leave with a box of croissants and arsenal of recipes.
Highlights
  • Small group sizes ensures a personal experience
  • Instructor offers inside tips and hands-on guidance
  • Take home fresh croissants and recipes
  • Coffee, tea, and juice provided

Well worth the time and money. Due to a last minute cancellation, we were an exceptionally small class (3 people). We actually got to do each step of the 6 hour process because the instructor (sorry I can’t remember her name) carefully timed everything so that we made croissants

Bonjour Sjbenoit, thank you very much for your thorough review of your experience learning how to make croissants and pain au chocolat with .... Amanda (that is her name). And I am particularly delighted you highlighted the hands-on nature of the class and found it to your expectations. Last but not least, it is great to read you feel confident you will make them again - ultimately this is what we strive for on top of providing an excellent experience. Merci beaucoup Fred
