DESSERT INTENSIVES

Pierre held his first Dessert Intensive at The Essential Ingredient Cooking School in March 2015.

 

Over 6 days Pierre and the participants explored the ins and outs of modern desserts. It was an opportunity to take the time to workshop new dessert ideas whilst learning about new techniques, flavour, creativity and a whole lot more! Pierre also shared his thoughts on developing a distinctive ‘style’ and what it means to be original and authentic.

 

We invited a bunch of inspiring people come and talk to us each day; food writer and cookbook author Dani Valent, sommelier & winemaker Raúl Moreno Yagüe and renowned chef Raymond Capaldi. Pierre’s first yoga teacher Felicity Steel also came in each morning to teach a class.

 

The course concluded with a private Dessert Evening, where each Pastry Chef got to serve their dish to an appreciative group of diners.
