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 genuine French culinary experience.

This was absolutely excellent!!! My 8 year old daughters and I absolutely loved this croissant making class with Nicholas. He was stellar, and also extremely easy to work with (especially with my kids!). The croissants we made were outstanding too. ☺️ They actually saved the day - we headed to the airport the next morning and my daughter grabbed the extra croissants (even though I told her they’d probably be stale) - 2.5 hrs at CDG and we barely made the flight home. Didn’t even have time to grab water - but we sat in our seats and ate ALL the croissants we made! We have been reminiscing the whole way home. I definitely would recommend this class to everyone.

This was very well organized in a perfect space. Our chef was welcoming and helpful. The proof is in the yummy, still warm, pastries we're enjoying as I write this review.

Great experience learning the secrets of how a croissant is made. And learned enough to feel I can do it myself at home. Lauren was a joy

Love love love everything about my experience here! Matthieu is such a knowledgeable, down-to-earth and funny chef (a rare combination I must say). His lesson is very easy to follow and it is obvious that he put a lot of love and thoughts into the creation of his cooking/ baking classes. I’m grateful for the knowledge and love for French cuisine Matthieu shared with us. After this class, I am now much less intimidated by making croissant and pain au chocolate from scratch. Highly recommend it! This is a must-do for anyone interested in baking and/or French cuisine.
