Reinvent 3 classic pastry/bakery doughs to prepare different sweet and savoury recipes for a perfect Brunch

Brunch is traditionally eaten somewhere between breakfast and lunch, but we can enjoy these recipes at teatime or at any time of the day, during a quiet morning to ourselves or whilst enjoying the company of family or friends. In this course we will discover the wonderful world of sweet and savoury doughs, some different preparations with endless possibilities.

This course is designed so that anyone can make advanced bakery recipes with innovative techniques and quality ingredients. We carefully highlight the dough's initial characteristics, and teach a unique and creative way of working.

Based in Barcelona, and an expert in technique and innovation, the French chef Eric Ortuño will explain step by step the timings, temperatures and everything else you need to take into account when following traditional recipes or adapting them to create a version of your own.

At the end you will be able to replicate classic French bakery recipes, or give them a creative twist in terms of colours, fillings and ways of cooking that you had never previously imagined.

Course curriculum

What you'll learn

You will learn to combine ingredients in order to make highly innovative doughs with a very attractive finish

Before starting with more complex preparations, you will learn how to make the classic doughs: the basic ingredients, the type of flour to use for each bread, how to make puff pastry, simple and double turns, etc.

Can you think of any other ways to use puff pastry? Leaving aside the classic croissant we will see other uses for this type of dough in applications such as sandwiches, tarte tatin, churros and waffles.

We will prepare brioches both in a mould and individually, ending with rolls with fillings that melt in the mouth.

We will make a Viennese bread with potato and chives, which we will then stuff with pastrami. We'll finish with a variation on Viennese bread, coloured with beetroot and using no milk, eggs or butter; suitable for vegans.

Who is it for?

This course is aimed at professionals and amateurs with basic knowledge in the world of baking. It is for all those who want to move away from traditional recipes and experiment with new proposals.
