Cooking experience hosted by Carmen

2 hours
French
Up to 5 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

French pastry is well known around the world and we can find many beautiful and delicious boutiques in France specialized on pastry.

This experience will be based on "choux" dough, the light pastry used in chouquettes, choux, eclairs and plenty of others french pastries .

Did you know that behind choux dough, the history of a very famous duchess is hidden? Did you know that the French marriage cake, Pièce Montée, is also based on this famous dough? You will be immersed in the world of choux dough and by the end of the workshop, the technique for making chouquettes will no longer hold any secrets for you.

We'll bake in a small group and have tea while we enjoy the pastries. It will be a wonderful luxury experience in Paris and a must-try French dessert.

Bonjours Chers Amis,

I'm Gaby a foodlover and a passionate about french culture. I'm the creator of Aten-Te Aute, organizing experiences in Paris and Aix-en-Provence to live like a local.

I learned my techniques from a french baker during my studies in France. One holiday season I did an intensive course and learned the techniques of french pastry-making, from macarons to choux pastry.

My goal is to share my passion for cooking by giving you the tools to learn and then re-create the recipes at home, for which I am certain you will end up having your Petit Chef! coming out.
