About This Class

Leslie Osborne is a professionally-trained artisan baker who was taught by master French bakers the art of the croissant.  She teach you how to make the REAL DEAL Parisienne croissants from scratch and feel like a baking rockstar in the process!  After just ONE bite, you will realize that you've probably never enjoyed an authentic croissant or chocolate croissant before (unless you've been to Paris).  Making them from scratch takes a little time, but the result is an other-worldly pastry that France is so famous for!  Leslie will take you step-by-step through the entire process and show you exactly what to look for each step of the way.  Included is an authentic French croissant recipe combined with traditional techniques to create the flakiest, most buttery and delicious treat you've ever tried!

Mommy by day, food blogger by nap time.

Howdy, my name is Leslie Osborne and I have a fabulous food blog called Bessie Bakes where I share whole foods recipes and artisan bread and pastries made with organic ingredients whenever possible.  I published a cookbook called "Smoothies & Smoothie Popsicles For Toddlers and Kids" where I share protein and nutrient-rich smoothie recipes that will make kids (and adults!) crave healthy whole foods smoothies filled with healthy greens and nutritional add-ons, but with kid-friendly flavors!

In 2012 I attended The French Pastry School in Chicago, IL where I learned the dying art of old-world artisan bread and pastries from master bakers from France.  I hope to inspire home cooks and bakers to create artisan baked goods at home with recipes that stand the test of time, and can be passed down from generation to generation.  

My most popular recipe: Smoky & Spicy Sweet Potato Fries with Avocado Dipping Sauce
