Tour description provided by Viator

Learn how to make classic French baguettes and croissants with an expert Parisian baker during this two-hour baking workshop. Using recipes handed down for generations, you’ll discover the baker’s secrets of creating the perfect bread. This hands-on experience takes place behind the scenes of a traditional French bakery in central Paris, and when the class is over, you’ll have fresh baguettes and croissants to take with you and enjoy later! This small-group experience is limited to eight people, ensuring you’ll receive personal attention from your instructor.

Your French baking workshop starts when you arrive at your Parisian bakery and go behind the scenes to become a baker for the morning. Experience the daily life of a Parisian baker as you learn the secrets of perfecting the classic bread that’s an integral part of French daily life – the baguette.There are many different kinds of baguettes, and during your workshop, you’ll bake two types, as well another French favorite – croissants. The flour will fly while your watch your expert baker demonstrate the proper techniques, from mixing and kneading the dough to shaping, decorating and putting it in the oven. Then do it all yourself!The reward for your hard work comes as you bite into your freshly baked baguette as soon as it leaves the oven. When your class is over, you’ll have two baguettes and two croissants to take with you, as well as the recipes so you can do it all again at home.
