New Applications with Laminated Dough

Three-Day CAPS Workshop

Join Peter Yuen for a laminated class 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.

Chicago-based Peter Yuen is known for his expertise in viennoiserie and laminated doughs. He teaches classes worldwide, and has been to 28 countries to teach in recent years. Returning to ICE for the third time, Chef Peter's class will examine the current trend of using laminated dough applications, from savory to sweet. Products will focus on: laminated non-yeasted dough; high-butter-content lamination (laminated brioche); classic croissant dough; and laminated baguettes.
