Le Croissant & Breakfast Pastries

Overview

The centerpiece for a typical Parisian breakfast must be Le Croissant – the decadent flaky and buttery icon of the French petit-dejeuner.

To find the best croissants in Paris, you could eat your way around its countless boulangeries but the best is surely the one you can make yourself!

Here at La Cuisine, our chefs can guide you into mastering the croissant from start to finish: from the creation of the pâte feuilletée levée (a yeast based puff pastry dough) where you will be kneading and folding your way to a technically impressive croissant to wow even the most discerning boulanger. (There’s no need to worry about your French – all our cookery classes are taught in English).

After you’ve learnt the basics, we’ll be able to guide you to making that mainstay of French pastry - crème patissiere (pastry cream) - as well as teaching you more about the technical side of your cooking: the role of gluten, yeast and rising times which will guarantee success in your kitchen at home.  

With your laminated dough perfected, we will guide you how to bake a world of possibilities for your breakfast table:

- Le Croissant (bien sûr !)

- Le Pain au Chocolat (the popular rectangular chocolate croissant)

- Le Pain au Raisin (with its signature fruity swirl and pastry cream)

- Le Pain Suisse (packed with pastry cream and chocolate chips)  

Everything you cannot finish here over a cup of coffee or tea, you will be able to take home with you! Keep in mind that Croissants at home can take more than 6 hours to make!  We have done a bit of work for you to ensure you have warm, buttery pastries to enjoy at the end!
