Chef Luc Baudin, former Pastry Chef of Pâtisserie Eugène in Paris, is bringing us a new and fresh way of looking at making pastries.  In this four-day, hands-on professional course, you will learn how to create health conscious creations using less sugar, less fat and more fiber. Chef Baudin’s products are designed and adapted to meet the needs of the consumers’ wellness, containing sweeteners such as coconut sugars while the flours are replaced by lentil flours, oat bran and wheat flours. Fresh fruit rich in fibers and sugar free chocolates will also be used in this class. Chef Baudin will teach you his philosophy to create these healthy pastries and incorporate the new ingredients while improving their flavors.
