What you'll do

You will discover an authentic bakery from a Strasbourg bakery and make THE French baguette!

We will meet in the bakery of the small green bakery on the rue d'austerlitz, which has existed since 1905, to make together baguettes made from flour of French tradition.
I will also tell you some details of the history of baking and baguettes while giving you practical advice and recipes to redo these baguettes at home. And then we will taste some choice cheeses.

You will leave with a baguette and rolls made by you with the super tools of bakers!

The workshop will take place in the bakery in small groups, the equipment, the ingredients, and the recipes are provided. You will be guided by Léonie. Léonie was trained as a baker in the bakery and will show you all the little secrets of this place.

Where you'll be

The bakery of Austerlitz is one of the old bakeries in the city. We can go back to 1905 in the photographic archives and this small bakery has survived time! The bakery is located on the ground floor in a courtyard and you will discover an authentic place full of flour!

It's not easy to find a course that matches this. You get hands on experience with traditional french bread inside of a bakery which is a rare experience to fjnd at such a great price. Leonie was super friendly, welcoming, and patient! She was great at showing how to do shape the bread and had good explainations for why things are done a certain way. Will definitely be going home and practicing.
