Pastry is Olivier's life-long passion. Ten years ago, he spent a year at the famous Ritz Cooking School in Paris. There he learnt with the best French chefs how to make delicious pastry for the greatest pleasure of his family and friends! His first great challenge in the field was to prepare all the desserts at his own wedding (marvelous fine cakes and macarons for more than 150 people!) in lovely town St-Malo on the Brittany coast.
During a trip to New York City in 2009, while they were expecting their second child,Olivier and his wife fell in love with this incredible city. This is where their project was born: a French style bakery with the homely and welcoming atmosphere of a Village café that would offer French and American pastries with a fine taste, using all-natural products – a combination of the French touch with American openness.
Mille-Feuille (or Napoleon in American English) is a famous cake enjoyed throughout the world. Its literal translation (“a thousand layers or pages”) also punningly refers to the nearby Bobst library at NYU. The Mill that was chosen as a logo brings to mind an essential ingredient, flour, but is also a reminder of Olivier’s commitment to produce authentic and all-natural baked goods. The Mille-feuille’s open kitchen is essential to Olivier’s understanding of pastry: baking is a delicate art that requires technical skills but it is mostly about sharing. Come on in, on vous attend!

We attended a croissant making class given by Vincent. This was awesome! He was very knowledgeable, patient and fun. I highly recommend this class. Unfortunately, Vincent is leaving for Paris, would have loved to taken another class with him. But I'm confident that if Mille-Feuille Bakery hired him, they know what they are doing. The croissants were delicious and we would do this again!
It was awesome! We both really emjoyed it and will do more classes here!
Great class and instructor. We loved the personalized attention and the fact that we left home with a box full of macaroons!
The class was fun and the entire staff was very hospitable. Chef Clemente was very knowledgeable and he shared some really nice tricks with us. I would definitely recommend this class for a fun time but to also hone in on baking skills. We all left with a huge bag of the most delicious croissants.
So much fun and interesting!
Fun and insightful class. Chef was very knowledgeable and interacted with all students throughout the class
Clement was amazing. I took over 10 different baking classes through coursehorse and by far he was the most amazing instructor.
Was well organized and the class flow was seamless. I would definitely recommend and personally take additional classes.
Teacher great, space a bit on tiny side
