If you’re looking for a fun and educational activity to do with your kids in Paris, consider signing them up for a cooking class! Getting kids involved in the kitchen helps build valuable life skills, and several Parisian cooking schools offer special kids’ baking and cooking classes. Based on recommendations from Club Bébé Voyage members, here are some top choices for kids’ culinary classes in Paris:
Cook’n with Class
Cook’n with Class comes highly recommended for their kids’ macaron baking class. They offer small class sizes in a welcoming environment where kids can learn to make these classic French treats. The minimum age is 6 years old.
12 Cakes Paris
12 Cakes Paris provides private family baking classes where kids can try their hand at making French pastries like éclairs and macarons. You can customize the class based on your kids’ ages and abilities. One parent said their 4 and 6 year olds “loved it!”
La Cuisine Paris
La Cuisine Paris allows kids as young as 8 years old to join their 2-hour macaron baking classes on Saturdays. They also offer 3-hour family classes for a minimum of 2 kids and 2 adults to learn together. Their hands-on approach helps kids master French baking techniques.
With your professional Chef, Le Foodist teaches you how to prepare one of the most challenging French pastries, the macaron. While their general classes are suitable for kids 12 years and older, they can accommodate younger kids in private classes.
The renowned Galeries Lafayette department store offers family-friendly French macaron classes for kids 8 years and older alongside a parent. It’s a fun atmosphere for kids to decorate their own cookies.
The hands-on experience of a cooking class gives kids a taste of French cuisine while making memories together as a family. Based on these recommendations from Club Bébé Voyage members, Cook’n with Class, 12 Cakes Paris, La Cuisine Paris, Le Foodist and Galeries Lafayette are top picks for kid-approved baking in Paris!
