Today is Pastry Day, so what better way to honor that than by making (or eating!) some delicious goodies?

French Chef Dominique Ansel is the creator of the super trendy donut-croissant hybrid called the “cronut,” a concoction that sells out in minutes in his SoHo bakery in NYC. He is known for his commitment to quality – as notes, “the hybrid-pastry chef won’t back down on quality of his insanely trendy pastries–even if it keeps his customers lined down the block at 6 a.m.”

It may be hard to get one of those in-demand cronuts, but you can learn his techniques through his online baking classes. He has five different ones –

  1. Pies, Pies, Pies
  2. Croissants – Simplified
  3. French Classics
  4. The Versatile Brioche
  5. Gluten Free

They are very reasonably priced at $9.95/class (and there’s a limited time offer of a bundle deal of 5 classes for $39.99.). Every class comes with: 5 to 7 lessons and recipes, 50 minutes of material, with every step of the baking process, plus your own downloadable recipe. They are an incredible value, so give them a try!
