It will take place at The Paint Box Bistro at 555 Dundas Street East, M5A 2B7 | paintboxbistro.ca

Afternoon Session (2pm-5pm)

Join artisanal baker Leo Baduria to discover the secrets of one of French pastry’s most magical delights – the flaky, delicate butter croissant. You will learn the whole process of creating your own croissants, from the base yeated brioche dough, to the techniques of butter lamination that creates the croissant’s signature delicate layered texture. This versatile dough can be used to make a variety of pastries like pain au chocolat, cinnamon swirls, palmiers and more. There will be delicious fresh croissants to enjoy in class, and participants will be able to take additional dough to bake at home.

$75 +HST

Leo J. Baduria‘s introduction to fine breads started in Montreal where he lived from 1977 to 1988. This beautiful city boasts a large number of fine boulangeries in just about every quartier where one can find a superb baguette for dinner or croissant for breakfast.

This growing fascination with French breads led him to try baking his own baguettes via several books on French baking. Over time, Leo assisted several bakers in Montreal, France and Italy – learning techniques that he would incorporate in his own baking – and has since given several sold out bread workshops to bread lovers who wanted to learn the artisanal way of making bread. Leo’s approach to baking is one that respects the soul of the living yeasts, the quality of grains used to make the flour and the enjoyment of the whole baking process from start to finish.

Every week, The Depanneur invites TO’s best culinary talents to lead fun, hands-on workshops.
