The course was informal, fun and I picked up a lot of hints and tips, you got to chat with like minded people and it was very social. As I am Gluten intolerant my recipe was tailored to) me which was also of interest for the other participants. Sarah is a fantastic tutor and has a wealth of knowledge, she includes everyone in the group and makes it an enjoyable yet informative experience
Perfect Your Patisserie – Two Day Course
This intensive two day course is all about beautiful, professional-looking patisserie you can recreate at home. Over two days students will individually make from scratch the following:
* Caramel Chocolate Domes with a chocolate mirror glazed finish
* Crumble-topped Choux Spheres with raspberry mousse filling
* Glazed Fresh Fruit Tarts filled with pastry cream
A range of techniques will be covered including:
* Choux pastry, sweet pastry & biscuit
* Sheet sponge
* Pastry cream
* Mirror glaze
* How to plan your baking, including tips on storage, assembly and finishing to a patisserie-ready standard
Over the two days, students will have time to work individually on every step of the process after watching demonstrations from the tutor, Sarah. It is entirely hands on and therefore groups are strictly limited to eight students to ensure each student has plenty of opportunity for one to one attention from Sarah. The emphasis is on ensuring that our students leave with confident skills that they can then progress with in their own time.
Students will take home everything they have made and will also get to taste lots of them throughout the course. They will also take away a recipe pack including an essential equipment list and recommended retailers.
This course is aimed at students with some cookery or baking experience.
