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!

We’re the ultimate French food lovers and passionate about our culture, so we created “Maison Fleuret” to share truly unique moments with like-minded devotees like yourselves.

Growing up, we learned how to cook traditional French dishes from our grandmothers, who passed down their appreciation for cakes and pastries. In the years since, we worked with chefs, took cooking masterclasses, and practiced a lot—all so we can give you a genuinely French culinary experience.

My partner and I were very pleased with Olivier. He shared his technique and was patient while we made our first baguettes. In general, this experience was a lot of fun!

My french traditional baguette class was amazing and pleasant experience, with Nicolas:) i was lucky because there was only one besides me, so if you’re lucky enough, you can have private-private baguette experience with pleasant conversations with Nicolas and the other participants. They’ve got great recipe for baguettes, i’m sure their other classes are great as well. I was worried a bit at first to reserve this a because it’s not cheap, but it deserved its value. Strongly recommend to Try it if you have time and passion for baking!

This was an excellent experience! The hosts were very friendly and the entire baguette making process was well explained and organized. The studio where the lesson takes place is perfect for such an activity.

This was our second class following the Croissant one and it was equally good! Def one of our highlights of our trip! Lauren was a great teacher, she was very patient and friendly. Learnt a lot about baguettes and nothing beats tasting your freshly baked baguette with butter and jam at the end! Highly recommend! :)

A wonderful introduction to Paris 🇫🇷! We learned so much about the traditional baguette. It was pretty easy to follow and of course so delicious fresh out of the oven. Would definitely recommend!
