Ricette bellissime e spiegazioni eccellenti

Il corso mi è piaciuto molto, si possono apprendere molte tecniche davvero utili per chi, come me, è nel mondo della ristorazione. Purtroppo a volte i sottotitoli non sono in sincrono.

loving petit four

This is really different variation of petit four, very modern not really the classic petit four that I have known for a year. I have learnt so much about the creativity of making petit four. Simple but elegant.

Lots of techniques and inspiration

I liked the course bc it showed a big variety of techniques and the recipes are a great source of inspiration. The translation to English was sometimes not as good/smooth and that made listen sometimes hard.
