Some samples of sweet bites and pastries featured in Joanne’s Pastry Love cookbook will be served during a reception and book-signing immediately after the talk.

A copy of Pastry Love is included in the tuition – just in time for the holidays. A must-have baking bible is a perfect gift for foodies and sweet lovers. Additional copies of Pastry Love will be available for purchase at this event.
