Le Cordon Bleu Adds New Certificate in Plant-Based Pâtisserie
This is the renowned culinary school’s second plant-based course offering.
Top culinary school Le Cordon Bleu has just added a new Certificate in Plant-Based Pâtisserie. The announcement comes on the heels of last year’s addition of a Diploma in Plant-Based Culinary Arts to the school’s program.
Le Cordon Bleu Certificate in Plant-Based Pâtisserie
The new plant-based Pâtisserie certificate is available to anyone and will be taught entirely online. The course in vegan baking will span ten weeks, and students will be exposed to online culinary demonstrations, seminars, culinary theory, and tutorial sessions.
Much of the curriculum will be devoted to teaching students how to substitute vegan ingredients in baking for traditional sources, such as animal fats, eggs, and dairy products. Furthermore, the course will review techniques in aeration, emulsification, thickening, and setting—and discuss how to adapt these processes when working with plant-based ingredients.
The course runs from November 1, 2021 to February 4, 2022 and requires a time commitment of six hours per week. Lessons will be conducted live, and students will be provided with a globally recognized certificate upon completion of the course. For more information, or to sign up for the course, click here.
Diploma in Plant-Based Culinary Arts
In 2020, Le Cordon Bleu announced plans for a Diploma in Plant-Based Culinary Arts, which will commence on their London campus in early 2022. The diploma is the first of its kind and was designed to provide culinary education for the widespread demand for vegan restaurants and products. The course consists of six modules in which students will learn everything from professional culinary skills to current trends in plant-based cooking. Several modules will dive deep into specific ingredients, such as grains, nuts, and seeds. The course is open to anyone, regardless of culinary background, and can be completed in three months.
