All the techniques for mastering choux pastry, creams, and glazes.

Design sweet eclairs that start with high quality, primary ingredients

Trends pass yet style remains. Pâte à choux is one of the most famous French pastry doughs. It is best known for making profiteroles and eclairs.

In this online course we will focus on the elongated, elegant, and versatile version, which means “flash of lightning” in French.

Fran Segura teaches us his secrets for mastering the art of making eclairs, and shares with us his experience as a specialist in this dessert.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • prepare a classic or flavored choux pastry base
  • create fillings with different bases and characteristics
  • make toppings in the form of creams or icings
  • make classic, minimalist and sophisticated decorations
  • create your own line of flavored eclairs.
