What you'll do

The experience is about awakening your 5 senses, you will learn the few steps to make, shape and bake a baguette, make butter, and finally eat your masterpiece during a wonderful lunch together!
We will start with coffee and French crêpes: This light breakfast will be a great introduction to French culture and a perfect time for all of us to get to know each other before starting the workshops.
We will start with making the dough and shape it into baguettes, we will make butter, we will learn sabrage, over the lake in my backyard, you know, that's the art of opening a bottle of Champagne with a saber.
We will learn to score, steam and bake the baguettes and we will finally eat our creations in a wonderful sit down bistro lunch. Following the new Covid 19 guidances, I will serve each of you keeping in mind that safety and cleanness in my house is a priority. We will have choices of cured meats and cheeses and
devour our home made baguettes with our own homemade organic butter.
You also will be able to bring complimentary Baguette/s as well as great memories to your family!
Please don't hesitate to contact me for private groups inquires!
Take the time to read my guests reviews, they are very insightful!

I was born and raised in Normandie, France. I am the owner of La Baguette llc and I have been told many times that my Organic French Baguette is the best bread people have ever had!! Yet it is SOOO easy to make those French staples and I love to teach my techniques to new guests as well as having a ton of fun!.... Thanks for considering my experience and believe me, eating a warm, freshly baked crunchy organic baguette with home made butter is extraordinary! Though this experience is a lot more than just making bread...I believe in strong connections and my workshop is a perfect platform for individuals to connect with guests from all over the country and even the world.

Oh.my.goodness! This was so much fun. You have to do this experience! Izzy is absolutely delightful and the crepe, bread, homemade butter and fantastic lunch are to die for. I got to saber a bottle of champagne and that experience alone would have been worth the price. She awakens every one of your senses. Please treat yourself to this experience. You will never forget it!

My family had a wonderful time with Isabelle. We enjoyed the conversation and the beautiful location. Isabelle is a very gracious host. It was a lot of fun to make the baguettes and my husband had a blast using the saber to open the champagne bottle.

Isabelle was a wonderful host and delightful to spend time with. We have been inspired to make baguettes and butter at home, using her recipes and techniques, and now have a new way of opening a bottle of champagne.

Isabelle's experience is amazing. I was impressed on how much we got accomplished in just 3 hours. From eating crepes, drinking coffee, chatting, and learning how to make the dough and bake the baguettes. Plus the champagne!! Perfect experience. This was a highlight during my stay here and I'd recommend it to anyone interested.
