Hours & Credits
This course focuses on the application of advanced baking and pastry techniques, the development of recipe-balancing formulas, and the full immersion in pastry lab management and organization. Students will experience advanced preparations such as financier cake, dacquoise, frangipane cream, ganache and meringue-based mousses. These techniques will be applied to the composition of entremets. The course will also focus on specialty preparations that require particular production methods or equipment: marrons glaces, macarons, molecular ice creams, and modernist spongecakes. During designated intersessions weeks, the course will be structured as a workshop on laminated doughs, savory creations, panettone, and pandoro. Students will be asked to contribute proactive participation through EL hours to the organization and management of the Pastry Lab.
