Christmas desserts as an expression of culture and personal identity

If the main course is king, then dessert is surely queen. Dessert embodies the holiday, awakens emotions, and creates sweet memories.

In this online course Joanna Artieda invites you to learn about Christmas customs from different countries, where we have everyday ingredients in common, like spices and nuts, but where we differ is in the variety of ingredients and the techniques for using them.

By the end of this online course you will be able to:

- Understand similarities and differences that exist for each region

- Recreate Christmas desserts following traditions and original techniques

- Evolve classic recipes in contemporary fashion.

Course curriculum

What you'll learn

Pastry techniques to enjoy the best desserts in the world at the best time of the year.

Discover the contrasts in what we prepare: from a freshly baked and comforting strudel for a wintertime Christmas to a refreshing iced punch from the southern hemisphere in summer. Or, from the cookie department, we have gingerbread cookies (in the shape of little men or houses) and Middle Eastern kahk.

How about a break from the familiar? Try preparing recipes from yesteryear that are a little less common. From Italy, complement the panettone with some pizzelle; and from Spain, accompany the nougat with polvorones.

For each dessert Joanna Artieda will show you two versions of plating: the traditional or classic and a slightly more modern version.
