The French Bakery – Croissants

Learn the art of making croissants at home! Pastry Chef Thanh Tang will take you step-by-step through the croissant making process. Your guests will be left wondering if you took a quick trip to France for them! In this hands-on class, you will make the détrempe and beurrage, then learn how to properly shape, fill and bake to achieve flaky, delicate croissants. Topics and techniques explored in this class include dough composition and lamination, yeast fermentation, gluten development and flavor formation.

Recipes in this class include:

  • Croissant Dough Master Recipe (Butter)
  • Pain au Chocolat  (Chocolate) 
  • Croissant au Jambon  (Ham and Cheese)
  • You’ll take home baked croissants from dough the chef pre-made that you shape, and the prepared dough you made to shape – bake the next day or freeze for future use.
