French Baking Class: Baguettes and Croissants in a Parisian Bakery
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 Paris, and of course includes tastings of fresh baguettes and croissants! This small-group experience is limited to eight people, ensuring you’ll receive personal attention from your instructor.
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 several varieties of baguettes, and during your workshop you'll see just a few of the many different types and styles that exist; there's more to a baguette than meets the eye! The flour will fly while you watch your expert baker demonstrate the proper techniques, from mixing the dough to shaping, scouring and baking. Then you'll get to try it out these techniques yourself! The reward for your hard work comes as you bite into your freshly-baked baguette as soon as it's out of the oven. But that's not all; you'll also discover how the famous French croissant is made from start to finish. It may seem daunting, but don't worry; the baker will help you understand the process and the secrets behind making perfect croissants. You'll taste a fresh croissant as the class concludes. Over these two hours of fun and discovery, you'll learn all you need to know about baking, how the ingredients play an integral role in the final results, and just what makes French baking so special.Sample Menu
