What you'll do

In our very unique Saint-Germain-des-Prés studio we offer to discover a 400 year old pastry : the lemon meringue pie. We all know and recognize its white cloudy meringue, usually sculpted in the most artistic ways. It is a popular dessert, each family is making their own version!

The greatest chefs too re-invent this dessert using the various combinations and associations of flavors possible yet sometimes surprising!

Guided by a professional pastry chef, you will learn step by step how to make the lemon meringue pie. Starting with the discovery of the ingredients to the mixing, you will go through all the steps, until baking and tasting.

To top it all you will go home with the tarts! This experience will allow you to learn how to make a traditional recipe that never goes out of fashion at home and share your French touch!
Other things to note
Maison Fleuret will do its best and make sure you have a great time during your experience.

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 genuine French culinary experience.

I took 4 of the classes offered by Maison Fleuret and each experience was amazing! The breakdown of each recipe was simple and fun! The Chef provided a relaxed atmosphere and it was a great time getting to know the other participants. I highly suggest any of the classes for any age. Thanks for a great time and great memories!!

Nous avons fait cet atelier avec une cheffe pâtissière passionnée qui a su nous apprendre les bases de la tarte au citron meringuée, un de nos desserts préférés: et tout est allé au delà de nos espérances ! Le cadre de l’atelier très bien décoré, le quartier, ou encore le cours très complet, nous feront revenir à coup sûr pour tenter d’autres expériences avec Maison Fleuret! Je recommande vraiment, pour les amateurs de pâtisserie : vous ne serez pas déçus !
