Classic Croissants at Home

with Colette Christian
A flaky croissant fresh from the oven! Pastry chef Colette Christian will teach you how to create these buttery pastries in your own kitchen.

Some believe authentic, delicious croissants are only found in Paris. Au contraire! Seasoned pastry instructor Colette Christian will teach you how to create buttery, layered French pastries from your own kitchen. Learn to mix, shape and proof your butter-locked dough, then bake it into exquisite croissants, pain au chocolat and savory pastries filled with ham and swiss or spinach and feta. By the end of the course, not only will you understand French terms like mise en place and detrempe, you'll also learn Colette's pastry chef secrets that will advance your baking skills as you learn different approaches to the croissant craft. Enroll now in Classic Croissants at Home and enjoy baking delicious croissants. Bon appetit!
