The desserts area of a restaurant is the great challenge for a good chef because it brings together a number of key elements: it is the final act of our work and occurs when the diner has satisfied their appetite. To meet this challenge, one must awaken the primary senses of the diner with a truly tempting proposal.

This course is designed to teach students the techniques for making desserts and a methodology for creation that will make sure you surprise your guest.

For us, confectionery is an alchemy of textures, matrices, aromas, flavours, products, travel and experiences. Joan and Jordi Roca
