Course Description

Created in the European tradition, most people think of tortes as chocolate. However, these rich cakes, made with little or no flour, have a distinct French history beyond the chocolate. Learn how to make the classic chocolate torte, but also how to make fruit-based and nut-based tortes. Wear a white chef's jacket, dark pants and comfortable shoes. Bring a tool kit with the following: a paring knife, chef and bread knife; peeler; spatula; dough cutter; pastry brush; thermometer; and measuring spoons. CES 2187 Cooking 101 not required. CES 2380 Pastry 101: Skill Development is strongly recommended before taking this course.
