Discover pâte à choux, the only pastry dough cooked on the stovetop, and learn to hand pipe it into perfect éclairs and cream puffs. Whip up luscious vanilla pastry cream, chocolate ganache, and Chantilly cream, and transform pâte sucrée into an incredible tarte aux fruits and a poached pear and almond cream tart. Plus, make phenomenally flaky puff pastry with step-by-step guidance from Colette, and turn it into exquisite palmiers, addictive cheese straws and a flavorful apple tarte tatin, complete with homemade caramel. Once you’ve mastered these elemental doughs and techniques, combine your new skills to create your grand finale: a Gâteau St. Honoré complete with spun sugar topping!

Once you’ve satisfied your sweet tooth, whip up savory treats such as cheesy brioche breakfast pizzas, and ham and cheddar hot pockets.
