French Cuisine

Cooking can span the gamut of ingredients and flavors, from sour to sweet and salty, and does not require the same precision in terms of grams as pastry making. But cooking will summon all your senses : a potent nose to assess the freshest produce, deft fingers to scale a fish, as well as an aesthetic eye to compose a dish which will make your clients’ mouth water !

The art of cooking can make you travel both metaphorically and physically. After all, you can find Michelin starred restaurants around the globe !

French Pastry

Interestingly, the first cake was not French but Greek. Created over 7 000 years ago, it served as an offering to the Greek Gods. Composed of flour and honey, it resembled a simple pancake. Long after that, in 1270, Régnaut-Barbon invented  « les oubliés », the forgotten ones (pastries rolled in the shape of a cone.) And from there the story of pastries begins ! The pate a choux, crème brulée and millefeuille all date back from the 17th century. But exactly what goes into making these ? Recreating these iconic French pastries involves preparing dough as well as the filling, checking the baking in the oven (or lack thereof) and mastering the art of glazing to decorate the cakes. If you would like to master these skills and join the ranks of over 200 000 French pastry chefs, be sure to train at FERRANDI Paris!

Bread Baking

While no one can tell exactly when bread making first began in France- historian Jim Chevalier believes it most likely appeared in the 18th century- the baguette is an important symbol of French culture.  Every city, town and village in France has its own boulangerie. Hardly any meal in France is eaten without some sort of bread, in a tartine in the morning, in a sandwich at lunch or to soak up the vinaigrette at dinner.
When foreigners think about France they immediately picture a brown-haired woman carrying a baguette or a gentleman sipping an expresso on the terrase of a café and nibbling on a pain au chocolat. They long to reproduce this French gastronomy and art de vivre abroad.
If this sounds familiar and if you too have harbored this dream, come learn the art of making baguettes, croissants, pain au chocolat and brioche at FERRANDI Paris!
