We’re the ultimate French food lovers and passionate about our culture, so we created “Maison Fleuret” to share truly unique moments with like-minded devotees like yourselves.

Growing up, we learned how to cook traditional French dishes from our grandmothers, who passed down their appreciation for cakes and pastries. In the years since, we worked with chefs, took cooking masterclasses, and practiced a lot — all so we can give you a genuinely French culinary experience.

We were a party of four. We made eclairs and chouquettes. This class was so much fun. The chef was helpful, and informative and conducted the class with charm. The location is a gem. Really worth doing this on your trip to Paris!

For my experience there were only 2 guests which felt like a private class. The chef was very experienced and very nice, and explained everything. We were offered to choose one of 3 different flavors for eclairs. It honestly felt like a getting together with friends.

This was fun. Learned alot and would recommend. The address was incorrect on event so we waited for a while and were late. Confirm address via message before you go. The space was cozy and all ingredients premeasured. Chef was very kind and detailed and clearly loved what he does.

Oliver was very hands on and patient for the Eclair making class. He also had many helpful tips if you’re interested in baking at home after the class.

Chef Lauren was amazing. She makes sure everyone is having a great time. I learned a lot from the workshop. Plus the eclairs and chouxettes are delish

Wonderful experience! Exactly as pictured. The staff were very nice, the equipment was very clean and new, and the atmosphere was comfortable. I went by myself and I felt very welcomed.
