“I had a fantastic time at this class today, Jean-Yves is a congenial and amusing host as well as a great teacher, and the cakes were delicious. I learned a lot of things I just couldn't have learned by reading a recipe online - like how important texture is, and specifically how things look at different stages. Oh and of course both the desserts we made were amazing. 5/5 would definitely take another class with Jean-Yves again.”

“Jean Yves is no doubt a master at his craft. He is extremely knowledgeable about French pastries, especially sugar. I asked several questions about eggs and whatever intimidated me about pastries and he delivered clear and scientifically-backed answers which I will forever carry with me on my baking journey. I enjoyed the chocolate flourless cake so much that I'm trying it on my own now!”

“I enjoyed everything Jean-Yves baked, especially the molten lava cake. It was the perfect consistency and went so well with the raspberry coulis! Chef Jean-Yves is so charismatic and skillful and offers a lot of helpful baking tips. I hope to prepare his chocolate desserts for my friends in the future!”
