PASTRY BASICS I

It’s here!

This is the perfect course for someone looking for an introduction to the world of desserts and breads. The skills taught over these 8-days will be an invaluable jumping off point for the complete pastry newbie or the enthusiastic home baker. We will use tried and true recipes to introduce techniques…techniques that will provide the building blocks for years to come.

In this course we will cover:

  • Cream Puffs and Doughnuts
  • Breads and Quickbreads
  • Pies, Tarts, and Ice Cream
  • French Macarons and Danishes

Rather than do it one night a week for 8 weeks, we’ve decided to do it on two consecutive nights over 4 weeks. Why? Well, so much of what we are doing can’t be done once a week. There are starters that need to be prepared for the following night’s breads. Doughs often need to rest overnight. And things like ice cream bases and ganache are much better if they’ve been allowed a day to have their flavours mature.

We will send out an email closer to the date with what you’ll need to bring. But for now we wanted to get the word out given many of you have been asking.

The dates for the course are the following:
  • Mondays and Tuesdays, beginning March 27th and 28th, 2017, 6:15 – 9:30pm
  • (Please note that there will be no class on April 17th and 18th. Instead it will be on April 24th and 25th)      

The price is the same as our Culinary Basics courses ($891.45 including tax).

If you have taken any of our other 8-day courses you will also get 10% off if you register by December 29th.
