Dessert is the exclamation point to any special occasion dinner, the ‘piéce de resistance’ to any celebratory fare, the lasting impression your guests and family take home with them. Shouldn’t it be something spectacular? 

Take your desserts beyond the ordinary and into the realm of extraordinary as we learn the tips, secrets and baking techniques to making extraordinary desserts from an experienced chef, Richard McPeake.

Chef will begin your sweet 3-hour cooking lesson as he teaches how to work with chocolate to create an impressive Chocolate Truffle Cake, then on to a tasting of a unique tart made with Fresh Strawberries, Chocolate Ganache and Short Dough, made from scratch.  

Finally, you’ll tie on an apron and work next to this culinary pro as he teaches you the art of making and piping the perfect Pâte à chouxpastry that will be sprinkled with almonds and filled with a praline-flavored cream to create a stunning Paris-Brest dessert - a perfect grand finale that’s destined to be the star of the show for any special occasion!

When you create these treasures for your family and friends they’ll say, “Oh no, you didn’t!”… and you’ll say, “Oh Yes I Did!”
