CAPS Modern Dessert Series - 3/3

March 03, 2014 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Institute of Culinary Education

$225 • 1 session
Our first guest chef to kick off the series will be Executive Pastry Chef Joe Murphy, of the much-loved and NY Times 4-star-rated, Jean-Georges. In this one-day class, you will learn the art of modern entremets. Literally meaning “between courses,” Joe’s recipes and techniques will show you how to make your desserts more along the lines of “showstoppers.” With a combination of classic flavors like Green Tea Opera Cake; innovative takes like Chestnut Cake with Black Currant Marmalade; and just plain fun combinations like Peanut Butter-Caramel Mousse with Candied Bacon and Bananas, each of which will be adorned with modern garnishes, you will walk away from this class with the know-how to further enhance and build upon your favorite recipes and techniques.

Joe is a native of Brooklyn, and with 14 years of experience in celebrated NYC restaurants such as Park Avenue Café, Gotham Bar and Grill, Ritz-Carlton, Mercer Kitchen and BLT Market. He is one of few pastry chefs that set the bar for the baking and pastry scene on the east coast. And Joe certainly encompasses everything we love about sweets in New York City.
