Brioche & Baguette Class

Led by our artisan bakers, this hour and a half class is a fun and educational introduction for any group to the basics of bread baking.  In the bakery, the class will make our signature baguettes, chocolate brioche rolls and bread dough all to take home.  Our instructors will teach basic techniques and tricks while students enjoy hands-on practice with the dough.


Artisan Pizza Making Class

Join Le Pain Quotidien in the bakery for one and a half hours to learn the art of artisan pizza making.  Students will spend the first hour of class in the bakery with an experienced baker making pizza dough and sauce to bring home as well as individual artisan pizzas.  Once the pizzas have finished in the oven, students will sit down to enjoy their handiwork at our communal table served with a large organic mesclun salad. 


Brioche, Pretzel & Pizza Class

For our students who enjoy a twist on their baking experience, this hour and a half class is the perfect event.  The first hour of the class will be spent in the bakery making chocolate brioche rolls, pretzels and individual artisan pizzas.  Once the pizzas have finished in the ovens, students will sit down to enjoy their own creations at our communal table and have plenty of baked goods to bring home to share.


Signature Bread Baking Classes

We offer all of our signature classes to private groups, which include: Bread Baking Basics, Part I or II, Biscuits & Scones or Sweet & Decorative Breads. Minimum enrollment and restriction may apply.


A Night At The Bakery

Are you hosting a large company outing or private party?  Let us create a unique experience for you and your guests in our bakery and at the communal table.

Your evening will begin in the bakery, with 2-3 sessions of a hands-on class in chocolate brioche rolls & pretzels.  As the sessions cycle into the bakery, the dining room will be exclusively yours and the communal table will be set with our artisanal cheese boards and organic baker’s baskets. 

Once all of the bakery sessions have finished, we invite you and your guests to gather around the communal table for a delicious customized dinner from our catering menu.  At the end of the evening guests will leave with their warm baked goods and the convivial spirit of the communal table.

Making a celebration of it? An optional alcoholic beverage service may be added to any of our classes. The service includes our organic house wines (Cabernet, Sauvignon Blanc, Rose), assorted Belgian beers, lemonade, iced tea and coffee for the duration of your class.
