The French Pastry School is proud to welcome Master Pastry Chef and Chocolatier, Thierry Mulhaupt for this new three-day, hands-on class on “La Pâtisserie de Thierry Mulhaupt” where you will create a variety of entremets, gâteaux de voyage, pain d’épices, and unique and innovative tartes folles such as a pistachio-cream tart with fresh strawberries and olive oil, or a chocolate-raspberry tarte with balsamic vinegar. Just as important as the realization of your buffet is the tasting of your creations, when each one will be coupled with an appropriate wine. Chef Mulhaupt will also share with you the secrets of his own shop in Strasbourg, France, from his conception of pastry in general to management to selling the product. He will show you modern techniques used to maximize time and materials for a greater profit.

Chef Mulhaupt brings invention and creativity to his work. In 1999 Chef Mulhaupt along with his wife opened a shop in the historic district in Strasbourg solely dedicated to fine chocolates and pain d’épices. His relatively young career has already earned numerous distinctions: Best Young Pastry Chef in France, Best Young International Pastry Chef in Barcelona, the Jean-Louis Berthelot prize in Paris, first place at the Gastronomic Olympics in Frankfort, Best Pastry Chef in France in 1996, the Marianne du Meilleur Kougelhopf in 1998, and three tablettes in the “Guide des roqueurs de Chocolat” in 1998.
