Colourful Macarons, tender éclairs, creamy Paris Brests, delicious millefeuilles, and even baked goods as simple as a plain croissant – the pâtisserie and viennoiserie that you find in Paris are better than everything you’ve tasted before.

Chose your favourite pastry

If you made up your mind and decided on getting filled in the secrets of pastry baking, the hardest part is still to come: Decide WHAT do you want to bake! I looked around and found the most popular and loved baking classes in Paris. Go ahead!


Croissants – the classic!

The classic french breakfast Croissant is most likely the most famous pastry in the world. But wait, it is in fact not even French!

The legend says the croissant was created by Austrian bakers to celebrate the defeat of the Turks, hence the half-moon shape. Only later on did the puff pastry got popular in France, due to Marie Antoinette’s love for it. The French renamed it “Croissant de Lune”, french for “increasing moon”.

But however it arrived in France, it came to stay. Today, croissants can be found in every bakery and supermarket.

Tip: to get the freshest and best croissant though, look out for a boulangerie artisanale ! This means it’s made in house. Boulangeries that are not “artisanale” are getting it usually delivered frozen and are just baking it.

Macarons – a sophisticated treat

Macarons are one of the most tender french treats and also the most prestigious ones. They are sweet and colourful little sandwiches that come in a million flavours. And they are just perfectly sized to enjoy more than one!

Even though the pastry is basically just consisting of egg white, almond flour, and sugar, Macarons are pretty difficult to prepare. It requires some know-how and finesses to master this classic french pastry.

But you are in Paris, the paradise for cooking and baking. Which place on earth could be better to learn how to bake Macarons than Paris?
