Cooking classes in Paris

I will be spending a week in Paris in October and am hoping to find a multi-day baking class taught in French. I've taken one-day classes at Lenotre on a couple of prior visits, which were terrific, and also a class/market visit with Cook'n with Class, which was also very good (though in English), but as I am traveling alone this time I have a unique opportunity to do something that goes for a few days to a full week. Ideas, anyone? My French is passable (I understand it quite well though my speaking is a bit rusty) and I'd like to use this as an opportunity to improve it. Ideally I'd learn the essentials of french breads. I've looked at atelier des sens and atelier des chefs and neither has exactly what I'm looking for. Other suggestions?

    So I'd advise you to search away. And of course. report back.

    1. Since you are looking for classes in French, I'd like to suggest Ecole des Gourmets. See web site here.
