Chef Odile Teaches Hands On Pastry Course  

Chef Odile, owner of the Surfside French pastry boutique Gourmet Temptations, has headed up the pastry programs of some of Paris’ finest pastry shops including the famed Angelina, Les Fées Patissières, and Patisserie Bijou. 

And now you can learn from the best! She’s offering a series of classes focused on French pastry making. Throughout the series you’ll learn the classic techniques of French pastry creation such as tempering, folding and icing while creating delicious fresh puff pastries, fruit tarts and so much more. 


In the first class, students will learn how to make a classic French fruit tart. In the 3-hour course you’ll understand how to scale and set up the proper mise-en-place before baking. Then you’ll learn mixing methods, including “creaming” and “cut-in” and the best of all, you’ll take your creation home! 

The first session on fruit tarts is 3 hours for $100. The classes take place at Gourmet Temptations in Surfside, located at:
