James Beard Award-winning pastry chef Nick Malgieri — former executive pastry chef at Windows on the World and renowned baking instructor — returns to our culinary program with a three-part course teaching you how to make sublime desserts with summer fruit.
The luscious berries, cherries, peaches and other stone fruits of summer inspire some of the most rewarding baking you can do, with shortcakes and summer cakes, cobblers and crisps, and sophisticated but simple tarts. Nick teaches you the techniques that will have you baking like a pro, with the confidence to swap out different fruits as desired, all with pastry shop-perfect results.
