Artisan French Bakery Visit

French bread and the classic baguette have been staples of French cuisine for hundreds of years; and just as these breads have stood the test of time, so too has the tradition of bread-making and baking in France.

We invite you to enter into the kitchen of a bakery to see for yourself the bakers in their element and how they work. You'll learn the bread-making traditions and the origins of some of France’s most iconic products, and you’ll get to see the bakers at work as they fill the shelves of the bakery with breads and pastries for hungry clients.
This experience will help you not only appreciate bread-making in a new light; it will also help with recognizing the difference between products that are authentically handmade and those that are shipped in from industrial manufacturers. To complete your hour-long visit you’ll get to leave with a freshly-baked baguette and croissant to enjoy for later.
