If you’re heading to Paris in the run-up to Easter, you could brush up on your chocolate skills while you’re there.
École Ducasse, a leading institution in the world of culinary and pastry arts, is offering a series of workshops for sweet-toothed enthusiasts of all ages.
The school, founded by the legendary Alain Ducasse, will be hosting Kids in Pastry: Easter Special on April 8 whereby youngsters can learn how to make several chocolate pieces and enjoy the playful side of cookery. For adults, on April 1, 7and 14 April, the Chocomania workshop is an opportunity to try the school’s pastry chefs’ chocolate recipes while learning to handle cocoa. At the end of these workshops, enthusiasts will be able to recreate professional recipes at home.
For those of you who don’t have time for a course but do have time to sample the wares, head to the École Ducasse – Paris Campus store, where you will find an array of mouthwatering delights specially made for Easter by the school’s teams and students, including an Easter egg in dark or milk chocolate.
Elise Masurel, managing director of École Ducasse, said: “We look forward to welcoming school children, amateur cooking enthusiasts, and budding chefs of the future to our range of culinary arts and pastry workshops over the Easter period.
“Our mission is to inspire the next generation of leaders in this field, and by experiencing what we have to offer at École Ducasse, we very much hope they will be inspired for the future. Our doors are open to anyone including families and tourists who may be visiting our wonderful French campuses from different countries during the holidays.”
