Petits Fours Patisserie Masterclass with Yolande Stanley

Yolande Stanley is one of the UK’s leading experts on patisserie so we are delighted that she is our regular tutor for our hands on day making immaculate petits fours. Every class is different with Yolande choosing a variety of petits fours according to the season but past classes have included florentines (finished with tempered chocolate), madeleines, mini éclairs, caramelised nuts enrobed in chocolate and piped sable biscuits.   You will also work with boiled sugar to make a sugar-based sweetmeat such as pate aux fruits and produce a variety of sugarwork decorations including spun sugar, springs and bubble sugar.

The fifth in a series of five focused master class days that can be taken individually or together to build your skill levels and which will leave you confident to produce beautifully presented set piece desserts or gateaux. This class is taught by Yolande Stanley, one of only 7 people in the UK to have acheived the prestigious Master of the Culinary Arts for Pastry (other holders include Claire Clark and Benoit Blin).  Her career included numerous head pastry positions at renowned 5 star hotels in UK and Switzerland. For several years now she has  been a University Lecturer and is currently at London South Bank University, teaching Patisserie and Chocolate - she is also an Ambassador for Cacao Barry.    

Yolande has been very active with WorldSkills for the past 15 years as a trainer and most recently as Competition Manager; she is just back from Abu Dhabi where she successfully coordinated 28 countries to compete and show off their Patisserie and Confectionery skills.
