Hosted in English, French

What you'll do

Famous all over the world for its crispy crust and golden colour, synonymous with the "French touch", made in every bakery in France and eaten every minute of every day: what else could we be describing but the French baguette!

Will it be granted Unesco Intangible Cultural Heritage status? Even the French president is talking about it - the baguette is a national emblem and we’re giving you the opportunity to discover its secrets!

— Firstly, you will discover the history of bread going back several centuries! You will discover the many and varied types of flour, and the different combinations that are possible!

— After that, you will discover the equipment, don an apron and, step by step in the very heart of Paris, with the help of a professional chef, make your first ever French baguette. From discovering the ingredients to baking your baguette, your dough will be in (and on!) your hands, all in a fun and friendly atmosphere!

— Finally, you’ll get to savour your freshly-cooked baguette, with a selection of fine regional products. You’ll be able to make a sandwich of your choosing, maybe an aptly named “Sandwich Parisien”, which will set you up perfectly for the rest of the day!

Growing up, we learned how to cook traditional French dishes from our grandmothers, who passed down their appreciation for cakes and pastries. In the years since, we worked with chefs, took cooking masterclasses, and practiced a lot—all so we can give you a genuinely French culinary experience.

An experience definitely recommended for both visitors and locals alike. The location and feel of the workshop is so lovely, I would not have minded to spend the whole day there! The chef during the session was Nicolas who was very friendly and taught very clearly. Plus point, he was also always very willing to take our photos for us to keep the memories. (even if it meant repeatedly washing hands. Merci!!) Go without hesitation and enjoy your own lovely baked goods in class and with your friends/family afterwards as you get to bring them home.

My family and I loved this experience. My daughter and I love to bake, but my husband and son rarely step into the kitchen to cook, so watching them enjoy themselves was very special. Emma was a kind and patient teacher. She made the experience fun with her humor and stories. We shared the class with a mother and daughter who were fun as well. Not only did we learn how to make a baguette, but we also had a great time doing it as a family. This experience was a great value as well.

These baguettes are seriously to die for! You do the entire thing yourself from scratch, so this isn't one of those cooking classes where you chop up a carrot and the chef does the rest. You really learn how to make baguettes from scratch! We had a group of six, and it was really fun getting to know everyone and making friends! The group was small enough to where we really got to know each other, which is really cool.

I signed up for this experience with a friend while we were in Paris and it was definitely one of the best experiences of our trip. We learned how to make baguettes and we’re able to eat some at the end of class with nice jams and savory spreads. We each got to take two baguettes (that we made) home and did a DIY cheese board night! Our instructor was super sweet and engaging! Would recommend!

I had a wonderful experience baguette making, all hands on, very informative, and really enjoyable. The instructor Olivier was great, so knowledgeable and fun! Highly recommend!

I would highly recommend this experience. The location was lovely, neat, and well decorated. It was fun to meet and exchange stories with our host/teacher Olivier, an experienced baker, and the other people enjoying the experience. The baguette making itself was very well-organized and the teaching was clear, friendly, and detailed. Also, the baguettes are delicious and fun to enjoy (and impress/share with travel companions) after class. I had a great time.
