We couldn’t be more excited to present our next guest at the Santa Monica Chocolate Society: world famous, award-winning chocolatier Christopher Elbow.

Christopher is among a handful of chocolatiers to gain national attention for his handcrafted chocolates, bon bons and confections. Since 2003, he has been bringing modern culinary artistry together with a craftsman-like work ethic to create beautiful, decadent expressions of flavors from around the world.

Christopher will be zooming with us from Kansas City and we will sample his bean to bar chocolates as well as his award-winning confections.

Curbside pick-up for your tasting kit will be available starting August 16th at The Gourmandise School.  The price of the class includes a special surprise tasting bar from Peter, a Friend of the Society, who has generously donated bars from his private collection. A percentage of your class price will be donated to Food Forward, our partner in creating a more equitable food system in the Los Angeles area.

PASTRY 2: 10-week Advanced Baking Series
 

This 10-week series is designed for the beginner or intermediate culinary student or baking enthusiast looking to improve on the basics of baking and pastry. These four-hour classes are taught in a professional environment. You will work independently and hands-on in a class with no more than 12 students.
 
Our classes are crafted to teach the basic chemistry of baking as well as techniques you’ll use both at home and in a professional kitchen. As with all our classes, everything you learn will be made from scratch, from the graham crust on your cheesecakes to the candied lemon zest on your lemon bars. We encourage you to bring a food-safe container to class to bring home your delicious work. Certificates of completion will be awarded at the end of the series.

 

CLASS MEETS FROM 930am-130PM

EVERY SUNDAY FOR 10 WEEKS
 

Day 1: Mousses and Souffles.  Whip, beat and fold!  Learn the secrets to perfect souffles and smooth as silk mousses.  Chocolate Souffle, Cheese Souffle, Lemon Mousse and Honey Chocolate mousse; Pate a Bombe.

Day 2: Egg-leavened Cakes. Perfect your genoise and pair it with a lighter-than-air Dacquoise.  A lemon-scented Chiffon Cake with Bavarian Cream will make your swoon...

Day 3: Fruit Mousse Cakes.  Pair your egg-leaved cake with handmade Ladyfingers and seasonal Berry Mousses for spectacular results.  

Day 4: Yeasted Doughs.  From dinner rolls to sticky buns, you'll explore the rich doughs that make breakfast and dinner so much sweeter.

Day 5: Savory Breads. Lean doughs are vessels for all things savory.  You'll create your own focaccia and pizza, as well as handmade pita bread, to pair with your housemade cheese.

Day 6: Petit Fours  Small bites make big impressions, and attention to finishing details are key.  We will make Orange Blossom Madeleines, Classic Petit Fours with a Chocolate MIrrored Glaze, Lacey Tuile Cookies and Brown Butter Financiers.

Day 7: Cake Decorating: Get great a piping and learn new, modern designs for buttercream cakes with clean lines that will impress.

Day 8: Truffles, Marshmallows and Infused Toffees: Create a candy wonderland with our favorite base recipes.  You'll make your own custom ganaches for truffles, embed toffees with your favorite flavors and make batches of marshmallows to rival any you've ever had!

Day 9: Macarons: Perfect the French Method as you make Vanilla Bean, Pistachio and Hazelnut Macarons with custom ganaches and buttercreams to sandwich them with.

Day 10: Making Chocolate Basics Learn the basics of chocolate tempering and make some beautiful treats including rochers and chocolate lollipops!


------------
The Professional Baking Series take place at our new, state-of-the-art cooking school at the Santa Monica Place Mall. There is plenty of parking on the third level directly behind the school. In order to qualify for a certificate of completion, all classes need to be attended.

While we provide all ingredients, please note that it is helpful for all students to have the following tools to bring with them to class: 12 ramekins (about 5 oz. size), a shallow-dish pie tin and  light-colored aluminum cake pan measuring 6" and  8” by 3” tall. This will allow you to bake in your own containers and transport your goods home without unmolding many of your items before they have sufficiently cooled.
