Le Pain Quotidien serves simple, elegant boulangerie fare made with organic ingredients whenever possible: breakfast, tartines, pastries and handmade organic bread & many vegan and vegetarian options.
Established in 1990, as a child in Belgium, Alain Coumont spent countless hours perched on a chair, watching his grandmother make bread. But as a young chef in Brussels, he could not find the right bread for his restaurant. Passionate about quality, he returned to his roots and opened a small bakery where he could knead flour, salt and water into the rustic loaves of his childhood. Le Pain Quotidien opened on October 26, 1990 on rue Antoine Dansaert in Brussels. The city quickly took to the taste of this traditional bread and Alain evolved his offering to include simple salads and tartines, keeping bread the cornerstone of the menu. At a local flea market, Alain found a long table where his guests could sit to eat together; it became Le Pain Quotidien's first communal table.
Upon arrival, please be seated in the area marked “RESERVED FOR BAKING CLASS” that is directly outside of the classroom. The Instructor will gather all students when the class is to begin. Please do not walk into the classroom until called.
My sister and I loved the Bread Basics class! Dawn was friendly, knowledgeable, and well organized. She clearly communicated the importance of good hygiene to the participants and several sinks, soap, and paper towels were readily available. The classroom/kitchen was very clean. Through the hands on baking experiences, we learned many new skills. We enjoyed tea and bread with Dawn and the other participants and took home a variety of our baked goods! We highly recommend the Bread Basics class!
I hoped the course would be fun and that I would actually get hands on practice. The actual course with Dawn was even better than I had hoped. We all had lots of fun, the time flew by and we made tons of bread. I went home with more dough to make baguettes or rolls or pizza with myself later, plus 3 baguettes and a whole wheat roll with walnuts and cinnamon and raisins and a handful of little rolls with chocolate inside. It was awesome! Best of all, I left feeling confident that I will be able to make good bread myself (not to mention that Dawn encouraged us to call if we have any problems). The course was everything I hoped and more. By the way, today I made the most amazing sandwich for myself...with bread I made myself. My sisters want me to show them how to make baguettes now. I’m going to send them to Dawn!
The class was perfectly organized and well executed. Lots of hands on experience and a lot of fun. Excited to try the recipes at home.
Clear doable process. Very good set up for the class. Enjoyed it. Learned a lot
Great class, lot of fun, learned a lot and the classroom was well laid out and equipped with everything we needed. Great content, but also a lot of information and people grabbed their breads quickly at the end, so unless you're fast, you get what's left, and it may not be yours because all the breads we work on in class get mixed on the tray in and out of the oven.
Love this class! Learned lots of bread basics both that you can apply at home and also how it is made in a professional kitchen. Left with lots of bread and dough.
This was an amazing class! Life changing
Such a great class. Dawn was a an amazing teacher. We left with so much knowledge and more bread then we knew what to do this. Highly recommend!
I planned the Artisan Pizza Making class for a company team outing and it did not disappoint! Upon arrival, the venue had seating arranged for us and even included a complimentary cheese plate, which was an added treat. After settling in, our instructor guided us to the kitchen, which she showed us how to properly prep the pizza dough. It was already created in advance, but we didnt mind, as we were really just excited for the experience. After that we added our sauce, toppings, then went back to our seats to socialize while the pizzas baked. Once the pizzas were done (which was pretty quick!), the instructor announced her top pizza winner. This added a fun little competition to the mix. We all enjoyed the setup, structure and venue! We will definitely use CourseHorse again to coordinate future team outings!
