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.

We will spend most of the time hands on in the kitchen before eating our organic baguettes but will also spend time in my backyard on the lake. I will be your Social Hostess for approximately 3 hours

We had the best time!! Isabelle was so sweet and bubbly! She was able to cater the event to involve our 5 year old and he thought it was the greatest day ever. The food and butter was delicious but the presentation and company really set the experience apart. We would highly recommend and would go so far to say as your trip would not be complete without a morning spent with Isabelle!

We could not have had a better experience than we did with Isabelle! She is a wonderful host and person. We immediately felt at home in her awesome home. The experience was very lively and interactive. We had a small group which made it seem special. Isabelle knows how to bring out the best in her guests. As for the baking, it was well taught, delicious and fun. My husband had the opportunity to open the champagne bottle, over the lake, with the Sabre. So cool! We ended with lunch as described and it didn’t disappoint. We each ate a whole baguette! Just an overall great experience and one that should not be passed up!!

Great experience! I loved everything about it. I appreciate that she e-mailed all the information after the class. I am all set to bake the bread at home. Highly recommend Isabelle’s experience!
