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.

We had the most fantastic afternoon making croissants and pain au chocolate. Beautiful location, friendly people, interesting and of course delicious pasties at the end.

What an amazing experience!! We absolutely loved every part of it. We made some new friends too and got some sweet tips for our trip to Paris. If you want to have the best crossiants you’ve ever had, come bake it yourself here! So awesome.

What an absolute blast we had making croissants under Marie’s expert tutelage! She was wonderful and kept our group entertained and tasked whilst giving fabulous baking tips. Our group was so much fun and we thoroughly enjoyed this time. Don’t even hesitate to book this AirBnB experience!!!!

The most wonderful, fun, local experience! Mari was just the best instructor! It was her own special recipe, not too complex. She is a certified pastry chef and was able to answer all our questions- learned so much. She was always positive and encouraging. Made great friends! I would recommend this to everyone!

The class was so fun, informative, and everything was delicious! My only regret is not eating everything fresh, you make 4 and I highly suggest eating them all right then. They are not the same when cold or next day. Enjoy!
