What you'll do

During this interactive cooking lesson, you will be hands-on in the kitchen, and, equipped with an apron and all the utensils you need, you will learn how to make "Eclairs" & "Choux" step by step, including tea & coffee !

You will be in control of your creations from start to finish, from the moment you lay eyes on the recipe for the first time to the moment you take your creation out of the oven.
I will be at your side to guide you and to teach you, with full explanations, the techniques you need to guarantee your baking will be a success !

At the end of your experience, we can taste what you have baked and chat about your trip to Paris and I’ll also be happy to give you my culinary advice, recommendations and opinions.

We’re the ultimate French food lovers and passionate about our culture, so we created “Maison Fleuret” to share truly unique moments with like-minded devotees like yourselves.

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 genuinely French culinary experience.

Wonderful experience ! Very nice atmosphere and high professionalism, this was my second time (in less than a week!) participating in the workshops by Maison Fleuret. Can't wait to recreate éclairés at home!

Cette expérience a été excellente. J'y ai été avec ma copine. Nous avons été guidés par Olivier et il a été très cool. Nous avons beaucoup aimé travailler avec lui. Sa bonne humeur et sa maîtrise nous ont permis de passer un moment très agréable. Nous sommes à présent des as de l'éclair hahaha

Expérience enrichissante et agréable , cela nous a permis à mon chéri et moi même de découvrir la création de nos pâtisseries préférées ( éclaires et chouquettes ) de manière ludique et adapté au niveau déplorable de cuisine de mon chére et tendre compagnon ( challenge relèvé !! ) . Un grand merci à la pâtissière qui a su nous accompagner et nous supporter tout au long de cette expérience . Point positif +++ : le professionnalisme et la gentillesse de notre formatrice .

My friend and I, we had a wonderful time learning the secrets of "eclairs & choux" making. We were guided through this journey by Matthieu who was very patient and gave us easy and clear instructions to follow. The place is located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, one of the fancy neighbourhood in the city and it is beautifully decorated. There was even a piano inside :-) What we loved the most was the personal attention and the overall experience and, I have to say, the final products were delicious as well. For a true French baking experience, we would highly recommend Matthieu' s class. We will certainly go back in the future.
