Pastry Boot Camp: Modern European Desserts 

Roll up your sleeves and immerse yourself in the art of making extraordinary pastries. Using classic French techniques with a modern approach, The Chopping Block's Chef Erin Patsiopoulos will teach you the art and science behind creating these professional, show stopping desserts while making them approachable for any home cook. With a Baking and Pastry degree, a Master of Science in Chemistry, and years of experience as an executive pastry chef, Erin brings a wealth of knowledge to teach you the skills and techniques needed to create professional-quality pastries with maximum wow factor. Don't leave these desserts to the bakeries; with a pro working by your side, you'll learn how to master these delicacies in no time! A vegetarian lunch will be served during class, and you'll go home with a box of your desserts to share with family and friends.
