The Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savories

A favorite local baking expert French native Clemence Gossett of Gourmandise Desserts, and her partner Hadley Hughes, operate a sweet and savory cooking school in The Market with two teaching kitchens and state-of-the-art equipment. On the menu: three- and four-hour classes, chef demonstrations, special events, cookbook signings and community partnerships.

Recent classes have included Sweet Spring Tarts, Gourmet Candy Bars, Handpies, Izakaya: Japanese Small Plates, Southern Pies, Quiches and Savory Tarts, French Macarons and many more.

In some ways, Gossett’€™s story reads like a Hollywood script.  Her pastry skills were born at her family’™s auberge in Provence, where as a girl she made a chocolate cake that made it on to the dessert cart, a magical experience for this young baker.  Later Gossett left the kitchen for film school, a stint at Fox and two children before opening a small baking company in Venice.  She began teaching classes on a whim and found what she loved best.
