Julie, our instructor, is exactly what one could hope for when taking this type of course - she is patient, highly skilled, personable, and has a great sense of humor. My husband and I learned how to make madeleines, a chocolate ganache tarte, and a mini layer cake. They all turned out very good! What most impressed me was that Julie took the time to show us the little everyday tricks that chefs use from how to properly use a pastry bag neither my husband nor I had ever used one before, how to briskly whisk something without getting your arm tired, how to pour something into the mixer without spilling a drop and creating a mess, etc. This course is a souvenir you will never lose or forget, plus you can use the skills/recipes you learn to bring a little bit of Paris to your friends and family.
Great people, fun and learned a lot.
This course is worth every penny! We made croissants and pain au chocolat. The chef was very professional and helpful and spoke perfect English. After returning home I was able to follow the recipe to make some for family and friends.
