What you'll learn in this pastry class:

We're going to make the iconic pastry - the croissant. Our chef will guide you through the entire process from folding in the butter to rolling and "turning" the dough, to shaping.

This class happens in two sessions over two days. Please see the calendar below for schedule details. Total in class instruction is 3.5 hours.

[First Session]

  1. We'll start by making the dough
  2. While the dough is resting, we'll make almond croissant filling and strawberry jam to smear on your croissants when they're done. If you want to skip this, you're welcome to.
  3. We'll then roll the croissant dough and shape. We'll fold our croissants and add our fillings (chocolate and almond if you made it) as we like.

[Second Session]

  1. You'll end the class with freshly baked plain and chocolate croissants as well as almond croissants if you chose to make the almond filling.

Virtual Class FAQ

What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.

Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Refund Policy

Students may cancel any time 48 hours or more before the class to receive a refund. Students canceling less than 48 hours before a class will receive a full credit towards rescheduling or purchasing a different class.

I live in Australia, what time would the class be for me?

Question from Deborah S.
I can only make the one day. Is there anyway I can follow instructions for day 2 as I won't be available

Question from Pati S.
Is there a video that we can access after the class in case we need to refresh our memories?
Answer from Jenny T. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Not at the moment - we don't release class recordings. That said you'll have a recipe booklet.
Question from Anonymous
Hi there ,I am vegetarian So no egg ,can we still make them ? If yes then only I want to enroll my self
Answer from Jenny T. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
You can use egg replacer or even hydrated flax meal for the egg substitute. Eggs aren’t a key component of croissants - it’s more for appearance and to bind together the almond cream for almond croissants.
Question from Anonymous
Will this work with a dairy free gluten free diet? Has anyone tried it gf/df? If so, what products were used? I tried making croissants once and they came back awful.

Question from Kevin K.
Bakers yeast is hard to come by these days but I do have a sourdough starter. Is it possible to substitute this?
Answer from Jenny T. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Yes! For sourdough, six hours before class, feed 1 Tbs. mature starter with 1/2 cup all purpose flour and 1/2 cup warm (80 F- 85 F) water. The recipe will need to be adjusted, which will be discussed in class, if you mention you are using starter.

Hi Paola! The full ingredient list is listed above on this page. If you scroll up you'll see a section for "Materials to Fully Participate". Right under there, you'll see a bulleted list of ingredients if you want to make everything. There are a few things that are optional and marked as such.
Question from Anne

Answer from Jenny T. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Anne! This class isn't being recorded for later viewing but it's something we'll consider moving forward. We'll let you know if anything changes. Thank you!
Question from Rebecca J.
Is this class vegan diet friendly?
Answer from Eve B. Verified Educator
You can use egg replacer or even hydrated flax meal for the egg substitute. Eggs aren’t a key component of croissants - it’s more for appearance and to bind together the almond cream for almond croissants. You can use vegan butter instead of regular butter. The texture and flavor won’t be the same, but it’ll work!

Virtual Croissant Making
Reviewed by Sally S. on 12/1/2020
The class was very helpful and the instructor was very knowledgeable and nice. She really seemed to know the process and seemed very qualified. However, it moved too quickly and was extremely tiring for me and my partner. It would seem that the instructor was asked to take over from another instructor at the last minute and so, understandably, she seemed moved at a very fast pace to keep to the time allotted and cover all the materials. This meant that there were times that the instructor went ahead before we had reached the stage that she was at. Since this was the first time I had made croissants, it got a bit confusing for me because my mind was focused on catching up versus listening to the instructor as she moved on to the next part. Some suggestions for the future are: 1. Fine tune the scope and focus of this course to make sure that the basic technique is down pat as the primary goal. Then add a second course to cover adding the optional variations of fillings for create different croissants. Skip the strawberry jam segment. It was interesting but unnecessary. Perhaps it could go into the Variations Class? 2. Have the instructor provide some general instructions for using Zoom at the beginning, so that participants know to ask questions of the instructor, one at a time. There were several occasions where voices got cut off and the instructor did not hear our questions. 3.It would be great if the instructor could allow some time for participant introductions at the very beginning of the class, so that we know a little bit about the other participants and their level of baking experience. This would set a relaxed and sociable mood between participants for this program and I feel would add to the experience. We did this in the challah making class and it worked out great! 4. I would have benefitted from knowing "what to look for" at each stage of the turning and rolling out process for the dough and more information about what can go wrong and why so that when we try this ourselves, we are prepared for various outcomes. Thanks to the instructor and her great effort!

This was much more involved than I predicted. The instructor was pleasant and explained things well. She was knowledgeable. However, she had some difficulty managing the projection technology while cooking (eg her leaving the camera stuck on an image that is no longer applicable so didn’t see what she was currently doing). Also, we needed a break! 3 hours listening and cooking without a break was difficult. Also, the recipe instructions were difficult to follow and it was difficult to be fully prepped with the correct ingredients, tools and supplies since these were mixed into the 6 pages of instructions. It would have been helpful to have a full list of ingredients and supplies and tools at the top of the first page so I had everything ready from the start and didn’t find myself with no parchment paper, no ruler, etc in the middle of the class.

The class moves at a rapid pace! There is way too much packed into this class. Instead of trying to cover too many items, more time should be spent on making sure everyone is working at the same pace. Doing the class virtual is ok, but don't give us instructions to turn our mixers on then keep talking. We can't hear you. I had a family member who was in the other room watching tv. If I didn't have help, I would have never finished the class. So, I'll never understand why it was such a rush??? Slow down!!!!

The chocolate and almond croissants were delicious, so chuffed to have been able to make them in an evening. The teacher was engaging and informative, taking us through everything step by step. If you don’t back bread often this might be a big first step, I think you’d get more out of it if you had some experience. Will definitely be doing more classes.
