Join us for a cooking class in Paris taught in English focused on France's most famous breakfast pastry : Le Croissant !
Know and loved by many, learn the secrets of this ever so flaky delicacy. During the croissant class, you will work and learn from start to finish the preparation of the Croissant as well as two other famous morning pastries.
Au menu :
Le Pain au Chocolat
Le Croissant aux amandes (Croissant filled with Almond cream)
After preparation of your creations, enjoy them here with us, warm from the oven! Each participant will have goodie box to take away their creations (what is left of them!)
*please note that preparing a croissant from start to finish does normally take many, many hours of rising time (now you know why those little beauties cost more than a baguette!). We will have done some of the prework for you to ensure that you can go step by step through all of the critical stages, without all of the borning rising time inbetween. You will be working through each step to make your own homemade croissants!
If you are fascinated with French Macarons and want to get futher in to the ‘nitty gritty’ of this famous pastry, then the three hour intensive technical class is for you.
During this class you will learn and practice two meringue techniques (French and Italian), create three different garnishes from start to finish, and learn to apply a different variation on your Macaron cookie. From the meringue, to the Macaron cookie, to the filling, you learn from start to finish six techniques – and of course have your box of Macarons to enjoy thereafter.
In this class you will learn and apply the following techniques:
Macaron shell variation – using a different nut flour
Garnish : homemade traditional Crème au Beurre
Garnish : homemade traditional Pastry Cream
Garnish : homemade fruit compote
Each participant will part with their creations!
