I am originally from France and have been a pastry chef for 25 years. For the past 14 years I have been living in Sydney.
From 2010 to 2015 I was a teacher at the renowned culinary school “Le Cordon Bleu” in Ryde, and taught patisserie demonstrations and private classes. In 2012 I started my own business, Patisserie le Marais in Bondi and have since moved it to Maroubra. My favourite things to teach are croissants, Danish pastries and puff pastry products. I really love these products because you can do so so much with them.

French Croissant Baking Class review by Vicki Fuller

This was a great workshop! Joël is a patient and engaging teacher. It was good fun to learn how to make (chocolate and plain) croissants and danish pastries from scratch. It also really gave a feeling of pride to see the finished products coming out of the oven, and to eat them (and share them with friends and colleagues). They tasted so good, and we couldn't believe we actually made them! The only minor points of critique would be that the workshop was a bit long and therefore quite exhausting (it lasted a good 6/6,5 hours). Also, it would have been nice and less time consuming if everyone in the group had their own equipment, instead of, for example, having to share rulers and having to wait on each other to finish. That took up quite a bit of (unnecessary) time. Other than that, everything was great and we would definitely recommend this workshop!

Our baking class with Joel at Les Marais was an exceptional experience
It was very well organized and flowed beautifully.. all 6 hours of it!
I must say time flew by as we were totally engaged in the whole process of making croissant dough from the beginning till the delicious end
Joel was very engaging friendly and helpful.. a very good teacher
The atmosphere was just great.. a small group of eight very nice people ...
We had a few special requests and Joel was very accommodating.
Would definitely recommend this class
