After breakfast we’ll get to work as we learn how to make the “roi” of the Parisian pastry, the Croissant. You’ll not only be mastering the iconic croissant, but also Pain au Chocolat, the snail-shaped Pain au Raisin and much more! It’s sure to be a fun class as we learn all the tips and tricks that will guarantee our success back at home! After our work is done, we’ll get to taste our creations and take home anything extra. Next you’ll have some free time to grab a bite for lunch before we head to one of Paris’ famous museums, the Musée d’Orsay.
