Join this class with l’École Valrhona Chef Guillaume Roesz to share his enthusiasm and expertise in fine chocolate and pastry! Work side by side with Chef Roesz to learn new techniques and how to create beautiful and flavorful tarts that will impress your customers. Deepen your knowledge about this versatile dessert, which will allow you to be creative and differentiate your offer from other businesses. Since tarts are a wonderfully adaptable dessert, they can be reimagined as a plated dessert or a to go option for your pastry case.

Class will focus on exploring tarts as a unique way to express flavors, textures, and design. You will learn how to decorate tarts with chocolate décor you can recreate in your kitchen as well as how to incorporate seasonal touches in your finished dessert. Chef Roesz will also teach you how to create distinctive combinations of classic and modern flavors to use in your desserts, with a focus on local and seasonal ingredients.

A portion of class will focus on how to work with alternative ingredients and adapt recipes for customers with dietary restrictions, such as vegan, dairy free, and gluten free.

Content:

· Use seasonal fruits, spices, and Valrhona chocolate to produce special fillings such as caramel, crémeux, compote, etc.

· Master proper dough technique for the perfect tart base.

· Learn innovative finishing techniques and practice making chocolate décor to make your tarts unforgettable.

· Understand the role a single ingredient plays in the balance of the final dessert.

Class price includes light breakfast and coffee in the morning, lunch each day, a class recipe book, apron, pen, a gift bag, diploma, as well as all materials, ingredients, and equipment needed for class.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic classes no longer include a class dinner.
