In Paris, bakers are rock stars...Are you the next Cedric Grolet or Lionel Poilâne? Let's find out! And let's have fun, tasting (& learning from...) the best whilst doing it! In the uberhip Canal St. Martin neighborhood, we go behind the scenes in Paris' most buzzed-about new bakery where then we enjoy a curated tasting flight of unique + artisanal Viennoiserie pastry and locally-roasted coffee. We then commence a private workshop where we meet the team of Anthony Courteille--Michelin Guide-listed chef & boulanger. In his bakery (open just to us!) we roll up our sleeves and, under their expert guidance, we will learn the techniques--hands on--of how to make delicious croissants, pain au chocolats, & French sourdough bread ourselves!

While our creations bake, we enjoy an 'apéro' alá Parisian, a rare cheeses, breads, + wine tasting. We return to pick up your creations from the bakery after!
