We'll be learning how to mix, knead, laminate and bake delicious croissants and other breakfast pastries. We will use fresh ingredients, starting from scratches, discovering how gluten works, how to insert the butter and how to give the "folds" to a real croissant dough. A selection in shapes and flavors will be baked and offered. You'll be able to take your production home for your next fancy breakfast. Some nice wine to kill the waiting won't certainly miss ;)
