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.

This was a great experience and the croissants were fantastic. The chef had great knowledge and was a fun instructor. She was very friendly and made us work together as a great team. Because of that the time flew by. Also the location had a stylish and pleasant vibe. I highly recommend this experience to everyone. It doesn't matter if you have baking skills, or not, you will have a lot of fun !

We were lucky enough to have a private session as there was just my daughter and I. We really enjoyed it and it made a lovely change from site seeing. Highly recommended! Delicious croissants!
