Helmed by Chef Director Vito Clemente, Liaison College Durham Campus’s cadre of chef instructors guides students through a choice of 20 available adult recreational or Art of Pastry classes consisting of four-hour pastry-baking and -decorating workshops. In Introduction to Chocolate on Tuesday, January 24, cocoa mavens supervise as students mould chocolates and chocolate truffles as well as blend and genetically splice different chocolates to concoct new flavours. For a primer in European sugar-butter basics, students can build, bake, and fill eclairs and chocolate marquises in Classic French Pastry on Tuesday, February 7. Over the course of the Art of Cake Making class on Saturday, February 4, culinary disciples experiment with blending cake icings and draping layered confections using varied decorating techniques. Students also exercise pinky muscles and knead life into baked scones, miniature sweet pastries, and french petit fours in High Tea Pastry on Saturday, March 24.

Liaison College’s chefs conduct each course with hands-on instruction, teaching students to actively participate in making each dish. Chefs supply all materials needed for each class, including a chef’s hat, aprons, ingredients, and kitchen implements. Class sizes in each of the varied levels and topics are kept small, ensuring that cooking coaches can provide ample one-on-one instruction and pastry-student relationship counselling when needed.

I love the Saturday pastry classes, excellent instructor, lots of hands-on with practical tips that one wouldn't find on their own without working in the industry
