Paris International Cooking School

Hot & Cold Charlottes and French Tarts Workshop

Part one of this workshop will teach you how to make a fruit base Charlotte and a butter cream base Charlotte (both are cold Charlottes cakes). We will also show you how to make an Apple and Cinnamon Charlotte (hot Charlotte). Then we will proceed with the art of making sweet and savoury pastry to be use in the preparation of traditional tarts (both sweet and savoury). We will also teach students how to blind-bake pastry, make Crème Patissière, Lemon Curd, Créme Chantilly, Crème Anglaise and more. Bring a camera and plastic container has they will be a lot of dessert to take home at the end of class.

Student will also have the opportunity to purchase his or her own tartlet tins as well as difficult-to-get Charlotte tin if he or she wishes at the end of class.

Like all our other Cooking Classes and Workshops, this workshop is fully practical (hands-on). Students are fully involved in this workshop. We don't ask you to just watch the demonstration, prepared to get your hands messy! (Okay, not that messy)
