- Cooking Workshop
- Pastry Workshops with Franck Geuffroy
About this Event
Each workshop will follow the method of the École de Cuisine Alain Ducasse with a hands-on class where participants work collaboratively under the direction of the chef to create the recipes. A tasting session concludes each workshop. Participants will take home the recipes of the pastries they created in class, along with a signature École de Cuisine Alain Ducasse apron. In this final workshop, you'll discover all the pastry chef's secrets to creating succulent pies—sweet or savory.
What you'll be making
- Pistachio shortbread fingers with crab, avocado and grapefruit
- Chocolate, pear and passion fruit tartlette
