The buttery croissant is a staple in French bakeries. Learn how to make this local favorite yourself during a 3-hour cooking class in the captial of French cuisine: Paris. With assistance from your expert instructor you'll learn the tricks to making a fluffy, flaky and perfecty folded croissant every time. Still hungry? Try your hand at making pain au chocolat. You'll have an opportunity to sample your fresh-from-oven results when they're through baking, along with some hot coffee or tea.
What to Expect
Choose the class time to suit your schedule, then head to the cookery school in central Paris to begin your croissant class. The humble croissant is a pastry popular across the whole country, but learning how to bake a perfect batch every time requires practise and a little inside knowledge.
Follow step-by-step instructions and learn how to make fluffy croissant dough from beginning to end. With hands-on guidance from your instructor, master the art of the fold and discover how to get great results every time. Then, pop your croissants in the oven and watch them slowly rise. During your class you’ll also make pain au chocolat — a sweet pastry roll with chocolate filling.
After roughly two hours, when the baking is done, take your fresh pastries out of the oven and enjoy them with a cup of tea, coffee or juice. When you're finished, bid your instructor goodbye and receive a box of your creations to share with friends and family along with an electronic copy of the recipes in English.

Wonderful class on croissants

My decision to look for cooking classes in Paris happened about a week and a half before I left. Since I would be alone, I wanted a class at a cooking school rather than a private home. I love making bread and had made croissants...More
