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 genuine French culinary experience.

Ça a été un vrai bonheur d'apprendre à faire ses propres croissants avec Olivier ! Il a su nous apprendre chacune des étapes avec passion et une très grande disponibilité. Tout a été minutieusement mis en œuvre face au virus et nous nous sommes sentis à l'aise et en sécurité dans ce cadre ultra agréable. Olivier a été très souriant et sympathique. Nous avons beaucoup aimé poser chacune de nos questions et échanger avec lui. Nous avons adoré manger nos croissants tout droit sortis du four avec un peu de fierté et beaucoup de gourmandise. Bref, ce petit atelier pâtisserie a été tout simplement génial !

Andrew and I loved this experience. It was awesome to learn the labour intensive process of croissant and pan au chocolate making. The host was incredibly kind, patient and helpful. There were no concerns around health and safety during the COVID-19 outbreak, masks and lots of handwashing :). An amazing way to spend the morning in Paris.
