Traditional, neat, and elegant pastry
There’s no better culinary point of reference than France, and no better discipline to combine precision and pleasure than pastry.
Introduce yourself to the crème de la crème, the best of this sweet world with Jonathan Mougel, an MOF (Meilleur Ouvrier de France), who will explain these recipes in detail.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- make baked, puffed, and fermented doughs,
- make creams derived from pastry cream,
- create expert decorations.
What you'll learn
Petits gâteaux: miniature cakes with singular complexity and layers of flavor
You’ll learn the technique for making a choux pastry from scratch. This pastry essential is highly versatile and useful for profiteroles, eclairs, or (in this case), a crown-shaped dessert called Paris-Brest. You will also learn the technique for puff pastry: the basis for détrempe and double and simple twists.
The baba, a leavened sponge cake that’s soaked in a rum syrup with citrus and topped with a mango-passion glaze, cannot be missed.
To finish things off, the Joconde biscuit: a sponge cake made from flour, sugar, butter, egg yolks, stiff egg whites, and ground almonds.
You will learn about pastry cream derivatives, such as crème mousseline and chiboust. You will also explore flavor options, like fresh fruit and nut paste.
You will see how to incorporate extra elements into classic chantilly to elevate the end flavor – in this case, vanilla and mascarpone.
