In this engaging cooking class with Chefs Mike and Marcus, you'll master the art of French pastry making, learning how to make delicate desserts that look as good as they taste. While French macarons are often considered one of the most difficult desserts to master, Chefs Mike and Marcus will expertly guide you through the process and make it feel incredibly simple. Then, you'll whip up a sweet and creamy crème brûlée before moving on to a delightfully fluffy chocolate mousse. Lastly, your French pastry workshop will end on a sweet and juicy note as you bake a sublime fresh fruit tart.
Chef Mike and Marcus make a great team. They truly care about providing their guests with decadent culinary experiences and love the work they do. They are keen to detail and super friendly! I highly recommend them to anyone in the Detroit area.
Chef Mike began his culinary career at the world renowned Culinary Institute of America in New York. After graduating at the top of his class he worked at some of Michigan's best restaurants and later earned the position of sous chef at James Beard-nominated restaurant Forest. Chef Marcus began his culinary career in Detroit, and later, had the privilege of working in Chicago at Michelin-starred restaurants. Most recently, he helped manage the kitchen at a revered fine-dining restaurant in Detroit before joining Mike at his company, Abode Fine Dining. The love of fine food that they share drove them to apply their culinary talents as private chefs.
