The courses of the Paris Bakery and Patisserie School

If you want to acquire real bakery and patisserie expertise, the Paris Bakery and Patisserie School  has a range of courses to prepare you for the French bakery, patisserie, and viennoiserie exams, as well as a variety of initiation courses and advanced sessions. Around 250 young apprentices and 130 mature students seeking to change career come through our doors every year, with a pass rate for the exams of nearly 100%.


The school has an international feel this summer!

International Grands Moulins de Paris and Délifrance Franchise employees, as well as tourists from around the world, have all recently attended discovery workshops for an introduction to the bakery profession. Through these training days, our bakery and patisserie apprentices tried their hand at making “French-style” products – including baguettes, speciality breads, milk bread, croissants, and other pastries – as well as tasting their creations.

Registrations are now open for the Young Bakery Entrepreneurs Competition!

The Young Bakery Entrepreneurs Competition (CJE) gives contestants the chance to win prizes ranging from €10,000 to €30,000. This financial support provides a fantastic opportunity for young bakers planning to open their own bakery!


Following a call for tenders by OPCALIM, Hugo Sticozzi and Maciré Kebé – both following a POEC (Préparation Opérationnelle à l’Emploi Collective – Operational Preparation for Collective Employment) – have started internships at the School.
