Menus change depending on the day and season, so you might be making a summer berry pudding, whipping up decadent chocolate soufflés, or layering flakey mille-feuilles. Or perhaps you’ll discover an age-old recipe for classic macarons (brightly colored meringues filled with cream or ganache), or make pastries like éclairs and profiteroles (cream puffs).
Along the way, pick up plenty of expert tips and tricks of the trade, to ensure you can recreate your favorite treats back home. Once your class is complete, take the time to sample your creations or pack them up to take away with you.
