Always dreamt of learning how to make delicious chou buns at home? Impress your friends and family with éclairs? Join this in-person class to learn chou pastry from scratch or improve your chef's skills.
We'll start the class with a quick intro to modern French pastry, as well as understanding the recipe, techniques, and seasonal ingredient choices. Then comes the baking: chou dough, craquelin, and crème pâtissière with a seasonal flavour. I will be available to guide each of the participants as we go through the recipe's different steps.
My name is Marie, I hold the French national Certificate of Pastry Baking (CAP Pâtisserie) and have trained at Shangri-la hotel in Paris, as well as other bakeries. I would love to share what I have learned with you.
This pastry baking class is ideally crafted for you to experience the full process of pastry baking, master the use of the different ingredients, and learn all about seasonal pâtisserie. Hosted from my own kitchen, you will get to use and experience all the professional baking equipment available. And you will go home with your own baked goods!

I started baking about 9 years ago. At first as a hobby. Then I got really into it, practiced more, and took a student job as a pastry baker.
I went working at hotel Shangri-La in Paris with chef the pastry chef Michael Bartocetti.
When I got back to France, I decided to formalize my Pastry Baking - by taking the national exam CAP Pâtisserie as an external candidate, and today I live in London and want to teach some of the best pastry techniques I learned over the years!
