In this 2.30-hours course (this is what deserves such a beloved French specialty), you’ll discover all the meticulous details that go into making choux pastry, from prepping to baking. You’ll learn how to work with a pastry bag and create garnishes and fillings like classic vanilla, pistachio, coffee or chocolate-flavoured pastry cream “crème pâtissière”. You’ll learn how to glaze your eclairs with fondant icing. And as choux dough offers a very broad palette of specialties you’ll also do some “chouquettes” and some individual “petits choux garnis”. With the help of our Chef, you’ll perform all the steps. At the end of the course, if you haven’t enjoyed your creations on the spot, you may take them with you. Techniques : – Désécher (drying batter) : Working the mixture over the stove. – Coucher (piping) : placement of the batter on the pan and use of a pastry bag. – Glacer (glazing) : brushing the surface of certains pastries.
Our chefs, Séverine & Julie are real bonbon. Their love of the art of pastry-making is one of their best qualities, one that has been enriched and developed through years of experience. Both are graduated from the International Culinary School Le cordon Bleu and from the France’s oldest hotel and restaurant training school, CFA Médéric. French but open to new horizons, our chefs have spent several years abroad. This experience instilled in them the joy of sharing with other cultures, contributing a great openness of spirit and empathy for the excitement of voyagers in search of discoveries.
