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.
