Valrhona has released its 2020 schedule for professional classes at L’École Valrhona Brooklyn, located in DUMBO. To celebrate the five-year anniversary of the Brooklyn location, the Valrhona team put together its most exciting schedule yet with world-renowned guest chefs, such as Pierre Hermé, Claire Heitzler, Oriol Balaguer, Ron Ben-Israel, M.O.F Pâtissier Stéphane Tréand, and more.
For the first time, Valrhona will offer four classes in various locations in California with inspiring themes, such as “Pastry by Lincoln Carson,” the innovative chef and owner of Bon Temps L.A. and “Rethinking Ingredients & Pastry Trends” with L’École Valrhona Chef Tibbetts, a deep dive into alternative ingredients for customers with dietary restrictions.
Valrhona will also host an exclusive four-day class with Chefs Pierre Hermé and Mickaël Marsollier at a state-of-the-art kitchen in Paris. The participating chefs will learn how to create petits gâteaux, entremets, macarons and bonbons in the famous Pierre Hermé style. The trip also features an exclusive tour by Hermé of his lab in Rungis, an open discussion with Hermé about sourcing, a visit to his shop on Champs Elysées with a product tasting and a pastry tour through Paris.
“2020 is an exciting year for us as we celebrate five years since opening the doors to L’École Valrhona Brooklyn,” said Emmanuelle Brun, chief operations officer of Valrhona North America. “We’re thrilled that our new classes in California will allow us to share the L’École Valrhona experience with even more pastry chefs who want to develop their skills, learn new techniques, and discover emerging trends in the pastry world.”
Seven Valrhona Corporate Pastry Chefs, as well as the 17 guest pastry chefs from around the world, will teach their hands-on classes at L’École Valrhona Brooklyn’s state-of-the-art location in an intimate environment, with the exception of the offsite classes in New York, California and Paris. All classes last two to four days and fees range from $955 to $3,640.
From now until January 6, Chefs who register for any class using the Valrhona App for iOS will receive two 3kg bags of our STRAWBERRY INSPIRATION.
