Would you love to enjoy delicious homemade croissants and more?


But puff pastry and flaky pastry seem too complicated - especially in a vegan way!

Do you struggle to bake vegan croissant or pain au chocolat?

You feel intimidated when it comes to baking anything related to puff pastry, so you don’t even try. It seems overwhelming because you need to get everything right - from the correct measurements to temperature, rest time, and preparation steps. 

The fact that it should be vegan doesn’t make it easier - how do you replace the traditional butter, eggs, and milk in all those recipes?

Have you failed to bake a vegan puff pastry dough in the past?

You felt discouraged after your first try because it didn’t work. Maybe you’ve already followed some other croissant or phyllo recipes online, but the final result was what you expected. You simply don’t know what went wrong. You were missing clear instructions and didn’t learn the why behind each step. 

So you’re afraid you might fail again. It would mean all the effort and ingredients were for nothing.

Do you feel lost because you don’t know where to start?

You feel unsure and wonder how to get started. How exactly do you prepare croissant dough? What’s the difference to a strudel of phyllo dough? What can go wrong? And how can you make it work?

You’ve got lots of questions but you couldn’t find any place that would explain all the necessary knowledge in an easy and understandable way.

Do you have any questions?

Do I need any previous baking experience?

You don’t need any previous baking experience. Sure, it helps if you’ve already baked other cakes and pastries in the past, but it’s not required to take this course. Every recipe is explained clearly and in-depth so you can follow along easily - no matter your previous experience.

Will I need to buy any fancy equipment for this course?

No, you don't need any special equipment. This course focuses on using everyday tools and ingredients to create stunning dishes. You need the obvious kitchen basics, such as a chef's knife, cutting board, pots, pans, and an oven.

How long does it take me to finish this course?

It depends. Going simply through all of the videos and course materials will probably take you around 2-3 hours. If you follow along and prepare all of the recipes, such as the croissant or baklava, it will obviously take you longer. Each recipe consists of a variety of smaller elements and preparation steps.
