Class Overview

Create no-fuss desserts with guidance from award-winning pastry chef and cookbook author Nick Malgieri. Start with warm, crisp blueberry cobbler and classic crème brûlée with a perfectly caramelized top. Bring elegant pudding back into fashion with a stirred chocolate variation and sophisticated baked butterscotch, and do it all lump-free! Moving on, lighten up with chocolate or lemon mousse and get tips on whipping up the perfect Swiss meringue base. Then, embrace a make-ahead frozen soufflé and infuse whipped cream with liqueur for a fun twist. Get Nick's personal recipe for decadent flourless mousse cake and create crème anglaise to top a rich molten chocolate cake. Finally, make a show-stopping trifle, complete with moist sponge cake and English crème, a delectably thick custard.
