Instructors

The course is taught by Jordi Bordas and his Research and Development team, made up of three great professionals who contribute different talents to this unique training program: Adrianna Jaworska, Paula Domènech and Ariadna Martínez.

Syllabus

This pastry course combines all the knowledge acquired over more than 10 years of research and investigation. It is divided into 4 distinct modules, designed so you can acquire the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge and learn to formulate recipes with the B·Concept method in a progressive manner.

  • Instructors: Adrianna Jaworska, Paula Domènech and Ariadna Martínez
To understand how a recipe works, it is essential to know the molecular composition of the ingredients you are working with. For this reason, the course begins with this first, theoretical module in which our R&D&i team explains in detail the four basic food molecules: water, lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates.
curso_pasteleria_bconcept_online_moleculas_agua
  • Instructors: Jordi Bordas, Adrianna Jaworska, Paula Domènech y Ariadna Martínez

The next step in the process of learning to formulate recipes from scratch is to understand the interactions between the molecules studied in the first module of the course. In the second module, we will cover all the textures that we can create as the result of different combinations of the basic food molecules: creams, mousses, gelled compotes, or jellies. In order to build these textures, we use four basic pastry techniques: emulsification, aeration, thickening and gelling.

  • Instructor: Jordi Bordas

This is the module you have been waiting for: recipe formulation with the B·Concept method. Once you have mastered the pastry molecules and techniques, you have the essential theoretical base to start creating your own recipes. You only need pen and paper. In this module, Jordi Bordas will explain the B·Concept method, step by step, constructing an example recipe from start to finish. He will also make some recipe comparatives so you can appreciate the difference between classic recipes and those developed with the B·Concept method. Finally, he will show you more than 30 different recipes designed from scratch.

This is the last module of the course. After 3 intense, theoretical modules, we can move on to the more visual and practical part. Jordi Bordas will teach you how to make a high-end pastry collection showcasing 8 pastry products from his recipe collection. Among them, you will find recipes made with a variety of ingredients (chocolate, fruit, nut or dairy), as well as numerous gluten and lactose-free recipes or 100 % vegan recipes. A module to enjoy and learn alongside the World Pastry Champion.

(Due to the fact that it is a new product and the first edition of the course has not yet finished, these opinions are based on the on-site B·Concept pastry course)

Carmen Capote Martín Chef at the cooking and pastry lab Zôdio | Madrid, Spain | @zodio_es For me, Jordi Bordas’ B·Concept training meant suddenly switching from classic pastry to avant-garde. I also acquired the tools and knowledge I needed to create healthier, tastier, and more visually attractive creations with some truly exceptional finishes. Jordi and his team are very warm and super friendly, they openly share all their knowledge, and they are 100% approachable. I totally recommend this training if you are passionate about pastry and want to have the tools that allow you to innovate and create without doubts. Also, if you want to make a turn towards healthier pastry without giving up taste and aesthetics. Thank you so much!
Christopher Rieloff Chef corporativo en Rosendale Collective | Miami, Estados Unidos | @Crieloff I had the privilege of attending Jordi’s class last fall and it was an unforgettable experience. The value you get from the class is so much more than what you are paying for. Chef Bordas is a true inspiration and you can tell he has immense passion for what he does. More than a pastry workshop, it’s a movement that changes the face of pastry for so many, including myself. The class was extremely informative and it was amazing to hear his expertise first hand. His class assistants were also very helpful and knowledgeable and made the experience very enjoyable. I highly recommend taking his class at the first chance you get- it will change how you look at pastry and especially at yourself and what you can accomplish if you focus and love what you do.
Zsuzsanna Ötvös Pastry Chef at Laurel Budapest restaurant | Budapest, Hungary | @zsuzsanna.otvos For me, it has always been important to focus on the pure flavour of the main ingredients in a recipe. Jordi's innovative and well-structured B-Concept course has provided me with the knowledge to achieve this aim. Apart from the maximization of pure flavour experience, we could also learn to create lighter and healthier desserts, still retaining the complex textures characteristic of modern pastry. Jordi's method is really revolutionary, it is the future in pastry, I recommend it to any pastry chefs.
Hatim Ben El Faquih Pastry Chef | Granada, Spain I recently had the chance to attend the formulation course according to the B·Concept method taught by Jordi Bordas, who - in my opinion - is a true visionary and genius in the pastry world. His generosity when it comes to teaching is an inspiration for the curiosity that together with his naturalness form two admirable human qualities. The course is a true invitation to discover personal and professional creativity to create our own ideas, taking both health and the commitment to our clients into consideration. It allows us to evolve and adapt to new demands and needs of the market. The creations that Jordi made during the days of the course overflowed with sensitivity, creativity, subtlety, and simplicity. Without any doubt, I would highly recommend this course, I would even dare to say that it is essential both for professionals and for those who are simply passionate about pastry that is in constant evolution To conclude, I would like to highlight the impeccable work of the entire B · Concept team, their exquisite treatment and above all their generosity and natural way of interacting.
Núria Ribera Otto Pastry Chef at Obrador de la Núria | Arbeca, Spain | @obradordelanuria What can I say, Jordi Bordas’ Pastry School made me who I am, an entrepreneur and a businesswoman. If I have come to fulfill my dream, it is thanks to Jordi and all his magnificent team. Through all the courses and trainings, I have learned to work with pastry techniques, to respect the product, to work with healthy and tasty recipes. I recommend it 100%.
