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.

Excellent bread staples workshop. We did baguettes, épis, "batards" which are whole wheat breads with fruits and nuts, and brought home dough to finish cooking at home. (we also brought back tons of baked bread too - have a bread-heavy dinner party that night!) The chef had lots of useful tips and there was not one question we had that she could not answer. I definitely feel I have the tools to make bread at home without a bread machine or using complicated ingredients (the course uses instant yeast). My only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that Chef Dawn was a little robotic and repetitive. She kept hammering the same words over and over again as if we were undisciplined children. You could tell she prefers this method of teaching after doing this for a while, and it's not coming from a mean place at all, but it does get annoying. However, it takes little away from the experience, so I highly recommend!

The instructor really cared about everyone’s learning. She was methodical and knowledgable. Overall, the class was a lot of fun. We got to bring back a lot of bread back home as well. Would love to enroll into a cake baking and decorating class taught by her.
