Chocolate and Raspberry Souffles
Intense in flavor and delicate in structure, these delicious favorites are easier than you think to make but they require sticking to tried and true techniques. You’ll be making (and tasting) several batches and learning how to garnish and enhance them so that you master them at home every time!
Chocolate Eclairs and Choux Pastries
In this class, you’ll learn how to make choux pastries (used for both profiteroles and eclairs), baking them until crisp and hollow inside then stuffing them with pastry cream and glazing with chocolate. You’ll explore several fun topping variations as well.
Baking Technical Challenge Anyone?
The mere sight of a checkered gingham cloth on a countertop is enough to give the bakers on the Great British Baking Show a case of the collywobbles, but if you think you’re brave enough to take on the gingham altar, this is the place to try! In this fun “cake week” bake off, participants will each be given the same recipe, the same ingredients and 2-1/2 hours on the clock. Your bakes will be judged in a blind taste test by two local judges and the winner will take home an engraved cake plate!
Italian Gelato with Waffle Cones
You’ll learn how to make authentic Italian gelato in your own home, both with and without an ice cream maker. Pick three of your favorite flavors before class and I’ll make those ingredients available. You’ll also make waffle cones to go along with them.
The Art of a Great Fruit Pie
The smell in a kitchen when a great fruit pie is baking is insane. Come learn how to create flaky bites of heaven with summer’s in-season berries and fruits. In addition to a fruit pie, you’ll also make some divine turnovers in this class!
