Full description
Explore a French bakery in Paris and learn about the techniques for making classic French breads. You will be part of a select group to step behind the counter of a typical French boulangerie. In the kitchen you will watch a demonstration by the master baker of how a perfect baguette is made, using techniques that have been passed down through generations. Watch the mixing of the dough, the kneading and shaping, and finally the cooking in special baguette ovens. The baguette is at the heart of French daily life and comes in many forms. The baker has his own special signature baguette, and today all of its secrets will be revealed to you.

    Great experience!

    The tour operator was very accommodating and arranged an earlier time to suit our travel schedule. The guide was fantastic and knew so much about french culture and baking. Also, the baker himself was wonderful and so friendly; when my children expressed an interest he let them participate in some of the processes. Definitely a highlight from our trip to Paris!

    Great Start To A Day

    This is a must do. Not only do you learn about the science of French baking, and it is a science. You get to see what is put into all those beautiful pastries, the differences in baguettes and the real secret behind the authentic french croissant, Then you get to sample a variety of little cakes and sent home with a goodie bag!!! The guide for our tour was not only super knowledgeable, but friendly and helpful. Pick the early morning tour for it a perfect way to start a day of touring

    great tour to get an insight on french bakery

    The tour guide was really nice and early at location. As my mother does not speak english I had to translate to her and the guide paid attention to it and would repeat things if necessary. The tour also gives a look into the working days of the employees and some facts about the role of bread in France. The bread of the bakery is really tasty and worth trying. Definately a place I will visit at my next stop in Paris.
