What you'll do

What is more representative than the croissant in France! Nothing more irresistible than a good croissant coming out of the oven! Together we will learn how to make dough for croissants and other Viennese pastries (chocolate breads, raisin bread ...) and then we will learn how to shape and cook. We start with a warm welcome with a coffee accompanied by a good croissant of course! You divide with your crust, to be able to cook in your oven upon your return.

Highly recommended. We had fun and learnt a lot about making croissants in just two hours and we came home with dough to make our own croissants . Helene was very organised and clear and the location is beautiful.

It was very helpful for me as I got to know some tricks to apply on what I used to do on my own.

Helene is a kind host but I feel like I could have had the same experience watching a YouTube video at home and trying it myself. The experience was advertised in English but since most of the group was French, she spoke mostly in French & there were some things I did not understand. The group was also not friendly and made me feel excluded for not speaking fluent French. Overall, there are aspects that I liked but I did not feel it was worth the money. I also did not get to bake any croissants because no where in the description does it say you need to take the dough home to rest and bake it at home. Many tourists like me would probably not have access to an oven!! So I didn’t even get to share my work and new knowledge with my friends and family. I think Helene has potential but some improvements are necessary.

Making croissants with Helene was just as we (my boyfriend and I) expected, and much more! Helene was warm and welcoming, and gave simple instructions in English (combined with demonstrations). She also was thoughtful to give us recommendations of her favorite restaurants and local sites. We highly recommend her!

Hélène est douce et avenante. Elle nous accueille chez elle et nous fait partager sa passion pour la pâtisserie et son talent de musicienne. La dégustation était top et l'atelier convivial, un super moment de partage. C'était super !

Nous avons passé un très bon moment dans un magnifique lieu. Avoir partagé cette expérience avec nos enfants a été particulièrement agréable. Hélène est a l’écoute, intéressante et passionnée par ce qu’elle réalise. Je recommande
