French for Parisian Pastries
Food & Drink
Macarons, croissants, éclairs, ohh la la!
French pastries and breads are world famous, and a visit to Paris would not be complete without stopping by Laduree or Le Nôtre, some of Paris' most beloved bakeries,for delectable treats. And while we don't necessarily have the time (or cash) to jet off to La Ville des la Lumières (The City of Lights) on a whim, there's no harm in spending the day eating decadently, practicing our French and dreaming of the day we'll see the Eiffel up close.
Dabble is teaming up with La Boulangerie (an authentic French bakery in Logan Square) and Multilingual Chicago (a language school) to offer this class, which is one part food heaven, one part French lesson.
Get a quick history of the origins of the French baking tradition, then practice and master everyday French phrases for sightseeing and ordering at pastry shops in Paris. We'll get insider tips on the best things to order while visiting France, and of course, we'll sample some absurdly fresh French pastries. Nous pensons que nous sommes amoureux!
(That's "we think we're in love!")

Thaïs Heintz is something of a wanderer, having spent time living everywhere from New York to Paris (and many more countries in between). Her multicultural background has always been an inspiration to others, as has her French upbringing; in France she Iearned "la joie de vivre" and the simple joys of the "gastronomie Française". Thaïs is very passionate about her culture and it's architecture, and she hopes to never miss an opportunity to share and teach eager students a thing or two about her romantic home country.
