The Croissant Class
The Croissant Class
Did you know that this quintessentially French pastry actually originated in Eastern Europe? Hailing from Vienna, where it symbolized Austria's victory over the Ottomans, it wasn't until the early 20th century that the croissant gained popularity in its delightful flaky variant, which we still relish today... Croissants and pain au chocolat have become iconic symbols of French culture, enjoyed during breakfast and teatime. However, their magnificence might have diminished due to almost industrial production, altering their taste and flakiness. Like an authentic artisan baker, discover or rediscover the original savoir-faire and taste of real croissants, pain au chocolat, and pain aux raisins!

Welcome to Maison Fleuret
Our concept began in 2017 with pastry and bakery classes, imparting the secrets of indispensable French culinary craftsmanship, now universally recognized. We now have three workshops in Paris: in the Marais, Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Notre-Dame de Paris district. Each day, our team of pastry chefs passes on these skills to people from around the world.
Since 2022, we've also opened a literary coffee shop on Rue des Saints-Pères, Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, in a former bookstore, preserving its spirit and ambiance, offering dine-in and take-out options, savory and sweet, blending past and present, here and elsewhere, mindful of our Earth and exploring the flavors of tomorrow.
The verb "fleurer" brings to mind the action of a pastry chef dusting flour onto there table before working the dough... This gesture, both elegant and promising, aptly illustrates our desire to highlight the work and beauties of the human hand, its ability to cultivate, transform, create, sublimate, and pass on traditions, guided by a curious, inventive, and sharp spirit akin to the "fleuret" (the foil in French) of a fencer...
Maison Fleuret offers authentic and unique moments and experiences, whether you're dropping by our literary coffee shop to delight your taste buds and mind or choosing one of our bakery and pastry classes. We are dedicated to providing rare moments, timeless memories, paying homage to taste, craftsmanship, refinement, arts, and the art of living, celebrating life and enlightened spirits!
