Full description
Discover the secrets to classic French pastries at a 3-hour cooking class in Paris. Held in a venue in the Latin Quarter, just steps from Notre-Dame de Paris, you will be welcomed by your host to work in classes of between 3 and 7 people for a more intimate experience. Start with a welcome refreshment and get to know your fellow bakers. Then, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and bake! You will work for about 2 hours following hands-on instructions on how to make Pâte à Choux and Crème Pâtissière et Chantilly, the building blocks of many a French pastry, as well as some savory delicacies. Learn how to pipe and master the most fundamental technique of French patisserie making. Then, create your own chocolate éclairs and cream puffs. This is when a native Frenchman enters to tell a story or 2 about French culture and pâtisserie - often tongue in cheek - as you enjoy tea, coffee or organic fruit juices. Leave your cooking adventure loaded with a box of your own creations to share with your friends and family. Or keep them for yourself to eat over the next couple of days!

  • A 2-hour hands-on class in Choux Pastry, Patissière, Chocolate Eclairs, and Chantilly

    The class was awesome and exactly what I needed and was looking for when I planned my trip. Le Foodist facility is absolutely lovely, the instructor was warm, informative, helpful and explained the "why" behind everything. I HIGHLY reccommend and when in Paris again, I will take another class.

    I arrived 1hour late as my plane was delayed into Paris, but was instantly welcomed by Frédérique and included into the cooking crew. The pace was lively and any rejects were quickly “ disappeared “ (eaten/ tested) Lots of secret hints and tips for success , emailed recipes after ,and open invitation to troubleshoot any home disasters . Frédérique delivers his class with enthusiasm and passion sweeping everyone along . A scrumptious experience .... imagine if I’d attended the entire class !

    Ann did a great job teaching us how to make choux and eclair pastries. She was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The small class size allowed her to work one on one and share her knowledge. I would definitely consider taking another class with Le Foodist.
