This is an advanced Plant Based Cooking course Level P7 focused on teaching people to make every type of Plant Based Vegan CHOUX Pastry. This course uses advanced techniques to make you a pro in CHOUX.
Choux pastry, or pâte à choux is a delicate pastry dough used in many pastries. Basic ingredients usually only include butter, water, flour and eggs. At Vegan Gastronomy we teach how to replace eggs with a plant based alternative that helps to maintain the texture, mimic the taste, reduce the cost over eggs, and have the same roles that eggs play in the pastry.
Instead of a raising agent, choux pastry employs its high moisture content to create steam, as the water in the dough evaporates when baked, puffing the pastry. The pastry is used in many European cuisines, including French cuisine and Spanish cuisine, and is the basis of many notable desserts, including profiteroles, éclairs and churros.
