Eunji Lee, Baby Banana and Yuzu Bonbon

Note: Originally, this article indicated that the class was being held on two dates. We have since determined that it will be held exclusively on Oct. 14 — tomorrow. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may have caused.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, reports suggest coronavirus hospitalizations and deaths are on the rise.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that L’École Valrhona Brooklyn has kicked off its Fall 2020 class schedule. On Wednesday, Oct. 14, Eunji Lee, Executive Pastry Chef of two Michelin-starred restaurant Jungsik will present an Art of the Dessert Tasting Menu.

The virtual class will provide full instruction via live demonstrations from Valrhona’s professional pastry kitchen in Brooklyn. Time will be allotted during each class for questions from the viewing audience.

Chef Lee will showcase two of her signature recipes — her trompe l’oeil Baby Banana, which requires three days to make (see video below), and her Yuzu Bonbon. She will also explain where she finds inspiration and how she builds a menu of complimentary desserts with unique flavor pairings.

The cost to enroll is $240. Each course includes a digital class recipe book, an apron, and a selection of chocolate for tasting. Each student will receive a diploma to certify completion of the course. All classes will be conducted via Microsoft Teams.

Register for one or two sessions: Oct. 14. 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST.
