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.
