[Sponsored article] Back by popular demand, Valrhona’s chocolate and pastry school is excited to offer new online classes!

Valrhona, the famous French chocolaterie, has announced the launch of new digital pastry and chocolate classes! These classes will allow both home and professional chefs who cannot travel, take time off, nor afford the cost of an in-person class to learn from experts.

Develop Your knowledge From the Comfort of Your Home…

Valrhona is thrilled to be able to welcome chefs, pastry chefs and experienced home bakers alike a professional opportunity to develop their knowledge through online demos taught by celebrated guest chefs from around the world, including Ginger Elizabeth, Greg Mindel, and Anaïs Galpin, as well as the famous L’École Valrhona Pastry Chefs Guillaume Roesz, Derek Poirier, and Sarah Tibbetts.

Seven Classes, Seven Delicious Themes…

Each of the seven classes will be teaching a different theme that includes chocolate, vegan pastry, pastry case, and bakery.

Each chef instructor will lead students through live demonstrations from Valrhona’s professional pastry kitchen in Brooklyn and will take time to answer questions for an interactive learning experience that will help students bring their skills and confidence to the next level. A recording of each class will be available for students who are not able to join the live session.

No Specific Degree or Experience is Required…

Each class will be live at 1pm EST and last 90 minutes. They will be conducted via Zoom. Online classes offer great flexibility at a lower price point.  The cost of a live session is only $49 and the recorded session will be sold for the bargain of $35. Both class options include a recipe book and 20% off Valrhona’s online boutique.

A culinary degree and/or experience in a professional kitchen are not necessary, but a foundation of basic pastry techniques will help students get the most out of the demos.
