An Exploration of Fermentation and Lamination

Two-Day CAPS Workshop

Join Zachary Golper for a fermentation and lamination workshop through our Center for Advanced Pastry Studies (CAPS)! CAPS is designed for current industry professionals, offering single- and multi-day continuing education workshops taught by master chefs and critically acclaimed artists from all over the world. At CAPS, you will refine your skills, learn new and innovative techniques, and expand your current repertoire with hands-on classes among peers. What's more, all CAPS classes are approved for American Culinary Federation-certified education hours.

In this two-day workshop, students will examine a hands-on approach to bread and viennoiserie involving a multitude of fermentation methods, preferment blending, grain blending, and alternative and traditional enrichments. Simultaneously learn (one on one) advanced lamination methods with personalized criticisms and advice designed to give you an edge in the competitive realm of viennoiserie.
