Led by Valrhona USA pastry chef Derek Poirier
In this class, you will rediscover the way that you look at cakes, tarts, and more. In this 2-day class we will explore some of the classics and also the more contemporary styles of today and you will get to create some modern Christmas Yule logs. Taste, texture, and visual appeal are all very important parts of a cake, which we will explore through the use of different sponges, streusels, custards, creams, and mousses. We will also look at the different pairings of chocolate with fruits and flavors. Upon completion of this class you will have a new understanding and approach to cakes and tarts that will surprise your customers… and maybe yourself.
Cost: $499 ; Price includes: Breakfast and Lunch for the 2 days, 1 dinner, and cocktail reception for diploma ceremony, 1 Valrhona Hat, 1 Valrhona Apron, and 1 Valrhona recipe book.
