What my students have to say

Vegan cheesecake
Vegan opera cake

Today, I made this delicious cheesecake during a One to One Online course with the lovely Pastry Chef Danielle Maupertuis (@dmaupertuis).

The lesson was awesome and I learned so much! It is not just about making a recipe, but also understanding the rich and delicate process of the pastry.

At the same time, it was fantastic because it is accessible to passionate vegans.

Another great thing is that she helps with alternatives, tips and substitutions. And the big difference is that it is only You and the Chef!

I highly recommend it especially because she is dedicated, a fantastic teacher and her professional experience is admirable. I cannot wait for the  next recipe”.  Lucy P-Z.

“I especially congratulated this student for this wonderful achievement .
It was her first attempt!” Danielle.
