Who is Sandi Planinšek?

It is not said in vain that pâtisserie is an art. Sandi Planinšek is a chef by education and a passionate pastry chef by heart. Favorite desserts of this young and aspiring pastry chef are those in the shape of fruit, and he is currently creating his own style of desserts at a renowned restaurant. His dessert display case is reminiscent of a freshly picked autumn crop ranging from ripe pears to shiny hazelnuts. He is most proud of the hazelnut-shaped dessert, as he says it is technically the most demanding.

Why take the basics of pâtisserie course?

Any pâtissier needs to be well-versed in the basics, regardless of whether you are creating desserts only at home and for your loved ones, or you have already taken your home creations one step further. By sharing the basics of pâtisserie, Sandi will walk you through the online course ranging from the properties of the basic ingredients to the recipe for a delicious chocolate cake.

"The emphasis will be mainly on the practical part of obtaining skills, and after each part, I will challenge you to the BAM pâtisserie challenge."

Sandi Planinšek, pastry chef

    “Let’s get to work and see the most important aspect in preparing to bake. In short: preparing your "mise en place". That means preparing everything, from your ingredients to baking utensils."

    “In this video, we will master the properties of the ingredients that make the desserts light and airy, flavorful and provide binding. As veganism is on the rise and our Pâtisserie Academy follows the modern trends, we will also touch on substitutes that are not of animal origin."

    Sandi Planinšek, pastry chef

  • 6.35 min

    “This time we will learn what ingredients serve as binding agents in desserts and what we need to look out for when preparing them. We'll start with flour, the most commonly used ingredient, continue with starch and conclude with a variety of gelling agents."

  • 22.19 min

    “We are now embarking on a journey into the world of flavors and aromas. We know that each ingredient adds its flavor to the dessert. Did you know that more aromatic ingredients with a higher fat content add an even stronger flavor? We will have to be very careful when measuring out these ingredients."

    Sandi Planinšek, pastry chef

  • 21.56 min

    "What awaits us is the sweetest, but at the same time the most dangerous ingredient – sugar. We know several different types of sugar, together we will get to know the sugars that are most often used in pâtisserie. In this course, I will show you two different methods of preparing caramel, the dry and wet method."

Hats off to the master pâtissiers because they need a lot of prior knowledge in the basics of pâtisserie.

“Real fun!”

Rating was given by Megan T., 17.03.2021

I miss the demonstration of how to assemble the cake layer by layer. Otherwise, it’s a lot of fun, but stressful at the same time. Ideal for Corona times when we are all at home ...

“You get all the useful information in one place”

Rating was given by Sophia B., 15.03.2021

Just the right contents for us amateurs. Lots of useful information in one place, no need to surf the internet for hours on end. I recommend Sandi's course on the basics of patisserie to all amateur bakers, and even to those who are more experienced in baking.

“Lots of useful information!”

Rating was given by Margaret S., 14.03.2021

I gained a lot of useful information. It might be a good idea to also show how to assemble the cake, for true beginners. Otherwise, very happy with the purchased contents.

“True master pâtissiers :)”

Rating was given by Cheryl L., 11.03.2021

All compliments to Sandi, but as a beginner, I’d have liked some more information on preparation ... The recipes could feature the method in more detail.

“You gain lots of new skills and knowledge!”

Rating was given by Claire D., 08.03.2021

I gained a lot of new theoretical knowledge and learned a lot of secrets that help make the dessert tastier. The explanation was occasionally a bit vague, but that doesn’t affect the end result and you still obtain a lot of quality knowledge.

“The BAM patisserie challenges are great!”

Rating was given by Sebastian O., 05.03.2021

I really like the BAM patisserie challenges at the end of each chapter. They allow me to test what I have learned and they stimulate my creativity. It’s excellent, I recommend it!

“Terrific online education!”

Rating was given by Susan C., 25.02.2021

I think that everyone who loves baking home desserts should download the contents and start with the online courses on basic pastry making techniques. I have to admit that up until now I didn't know you need to add some fat (almond flour, etc.) to the sponge batter to give it a better texture. I recommend it to everyone!

Impressed with the courses. I am already looking forward to new topics.
