The baguette, the long, crusty loaf bread that is a delicious staple of French life, has been awarded special protected status, placing it in a culinary pantheon alongside other regional food delicacies from around the world. For the artisanal bakers who remain dedicated to the loaf, the baguette listed to the Unesco intangible cultural heritage came as a welcome recognition of the craft they daily perfect.
You are a foodie traveler, and you are keen in learning how to make French bread including the crispy baguette?
You will be in Paris soon? Join us in our kitchen!
In coming to France, you won’t miss to push the door of a traditional bakery, smelling the flavors of freshly baked croissants, brioches, baguettes and traditional French breads.
Lifestyle Vacations always offer unique experiences such as a private class (from 2 to 4 people) run in an authentic bakery. You will learn how to master the art of bread including the French Baguette.
Under our chef instructor, you will learn how to make the French bread from scratch, and to bake it in a home oven. Along your 3-hour class, you will learn how to prepare the bread doughs step by step. Our chef will explain the different quality of flours, how to use active fresh yeast, the fermentation process, the shaping methods, the baking temperatures and time, as well as how to create the steam in a home oven for baking the bread. Bread requires a long fermentation, so even though you will be making everything from scratch, the dough will be prepared ahead of time for baking.
PROGRAM PRICES: US$190 per person. Private class supplement: $40 per person.
Scheduled in the baking school Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 2pm or in the bakery Monday-Friday at 2:30pm upon request (except on public holidays).
