Pastry Boot Camp (Hyde Park, NY)

Bring your passion for pastry and your artistic eye to our bakeshops. Pastry Boot Camp is all about understanding and mastering the fundamental techniques and tools you need to prepare all of those amazing pastries and desserts you find at the pâtisserie. In this course, you’ll build your understanding of the functions of baking ingredients and create basic preparations such as laminated dough, pastry cream, meringues, buttercreams, ganaches, and mousses. You’ll also develop professional pastry-making skills like tempering and working with chocolate, making and piping pâte à choux for éclairs and cream puffs, preparing a soufflé, foaming and creaming, assembling sponge cakes and tarts, and plating desserts.

When you enlist in CIA Pastry Boot Camp, you will receive two chef’s uniforms, each with a jacket, pants, and a neckerchief. Paper chef’s hats, side towels, and aprons will be provided in class.
