|Dear Friends and Culinary Enthusiasts,
With Spring's arrival, we have great news to share! Our May and July Mold Making Classes still have a few spaces, Stéphane Tréand MOF's new school has opened, and we are calling for competition entries for Pastry Live.
So, without further ado...
2012 Mold Making Class Dates
May 21, Monday- 9am-5pm
May 22, Tuesday- 9am-5pm
May 23, Wednesday- 8am-2pm
July 9, Monday- 9am-5pm
July 10, Tuesday- 9am-5pm

While we can't compress all of Michael's skill and 20 years experience into three days, you will leave with a solid understanding, invaluable information and all of the molds you make in class. Cost: $1,150.00 = $800.00 for the three day class, plus $350.00 for the tool kit and silicone material (all of which you take home). For more details and discounted room rates visit Classes on our website or call us at 708-660-9707.
Stéphane Tréand MOF has opened his top-of-the-line pastry school in beautiful San Clemente, California. Not only are the classes taught by Chef Treand, he has enlisted pastry champions Patrice Caillot, Vincent Pilon, & Frederic Monti to share their knowledge. See for yourself in the photos of the opening event. Everything is world-class!

May 2012 Showcase
Guests at the Ritz-Carlton Resort Naples enjoyed an amazing easter buffet this year. Among the many beautiful decorations was this breathtaking chocolate Easter Egg by Oralia Perez, assistant to Sébastien Thieffine, Executive Pastry Chef. We thought the techniques and elegant aesthetics would be inspiration for quickly approaching Mother's Day celebrations! ...visit our Showcase for more.
