Description

Christmas is coming! Dazzle your guests with this classic alpine dessert, the Buche du Noel au chocolat, or Chocolate Log. You will learn from French Pastry Chef, Amandine Salvi from Sweet Rendez-vous Patisserie how to make a Pain de gêne, light fluffy chocolate mousse, and dark chocolate ganache. And of course, you will learn how to assemble and texturise the cake, and be able to give it your personal touch.

Next you will learn how to make Chocolate Truffles - be careful, these can be addictive! Great for decorating cakes, such as the Buche, but also delicious and pretty served on their own. A classic in French Christmas.

Amandine Salvi started her professional training at Lesdiguières culinary school in Grenoble, France, and went on to work in michelin star restaurants in France. She then decided to specialise in Pâtisserie and was taught directly by talented and established French Patisserie chefs in there boutique pastry shops in Annecy and Chambery, France. Amandine moved to Sydney, Australia in 2017 and has continued working in French style pâtisserie here, including at some of Sydney’s well known French pâtisseries, such as La Renaissance. In 2018, Amandine established Sweet Rendez-vous Patisserie, her own French pâtisserie business. Amandine loves nothing more than sharing her passion for pâtisserie with others.
