Ruth's testimonial

"Good morning Chef! I wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying the pastry course. I am a home baker with no formal training and the course was perfect for me. I appreciated the combination of recipe and videos so I could clearly see what I should be looking for and handle surprises like my namelaka coming together sooo fast. Thank you for responding to my questions so quickly.My first attempt at cream puff was delicious and work colleagues were super impressed. It will take a little practice with piping to get consistency in size and shape but I’m excited to try the eclair and pistachio cremeaux! Would love a follow up course on macaron!"

Bonjour, I am Said M'Dahoma AKA The Pastry Nerd

I am a French-Comorian baker living in Calgary, Canada. I was born and raised in Paris, where I got my Neuroscience PhD and ate pastries all the time.

Eight years ago, when I moved to Canada, I started missing French pastries so much that I started baking on my own. My passion for baking grew so much that I decided to use my science knowledge two years ago for baking instead of research and launched the Pastry Nerd.

Since then, I was elected Foodie of the year for Western Canada, participated as a sourdough judge for CBC radio, and grew from 500 to 220K followers across different social media platforms teaching French pastry with my account @said.pastrynerd. I sold my pastries (lots of cream puffs and eclairs) at pop-up events but my real passion is in teaching !

So far I gave pastry classes to more than 400 students and taught to over 100 people how to make cream puffs.

Lina's review and eclairs:

I learned a lot from Said's course. He gave me the best "clue" as to when the cream puff dough texture is perfect. That helped me out from the dark days of never-successful choux. In the course, everything is explained in the best, most straightforward manner for everyone to understand. He assists his student's struggles into success. I finally understood and got the essential technique for baking successful eclair shells! His instructions are spot on! Plus, It felt like a friend was teaching me,: I felt that I was allowed to make mistakes without being embarrassed to ask him"

Jacqueline's review

"The Basics of cream puff for the home baker by The Pastry Nerd Said M'dahoma is a course created by someone who is eager to share his knowledge of pastry and help his students succeed. The course is thorough and provides clear step-by-step instructions to help students prevent any common pitfalls.  I appreciated the feedback I received after my first attempt with my cream puffs. Said was able to provide me quick answers to my questions and I saw immediate improvement with my second batch due to his guidance.  I highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to learn the art of Choux pastry!"
