If you love bread we teach sourdough, French baguette, challah (a sweet, braided egg bread), artisanal bread, bagels, fougasse and focaccia. A lover of pasta? We teach spaghetti and fettuccini with tomato sauce. This lesson also includes French baguette. On the sweeter side we offer Chocolate 101, French macarons and donuts. On the artistic side we teach poured, pulled and blown sugar. Couples take home everything they make. Date Night classes are offered seven days a week from 6:00pm-9:00pm.
Please contact us if you need help deciding on a class that is right for you.
Learn to make either sweet, braided challah (including cinnamon buns), French baguettes, artisanal, fougasse, focaccia, bagels or sour dough. With the sour dough class we will give you some sour dough starter that is over 100 years old so that you can make more at home!
You will sample chocolate, learn about different types of chocolate, temper chocolate, hand-roll truffles, dip cake pops. You will go home with a large box of fine Belgian chocolate confections to share ….. or not!
Learn the Italian Meringue method of making macarons. You will make the beautifully colored shells and premium fillings, build your delicious confections and take home a large box (approximately 36) of macarons.
Poured, Pulled and Blown Sugar
This class is ideal for students 13 years of age and older. We use a product called Isomalt, which is melted to a very hot liquid and poured into molds or pulled into shapes. We teach you to build spectacular glass-like cake toppers
and center pieces.
Learn to make soft pillowy donuts that are fried and dipped in several different toppings (vanilla glaze, fruit flavored glaze and cinnamon sugar sprinkle). Students take home a large box of donuts.
Fresh pasta is wonderful. Learn to make spaghetti, fettuccini, tomato sauce and, as a bonus, we also teach French baguette. Take home a complete meal. This lesson is 3 hours in length.
We start with a fine Belgian couverture chocolate tasting. Students are taught the difference between the various types of chocolate and cocoa powder and all those confusing percentages that appear on the chocolate bar wrappers are explained. You will learn what chocolate is and what it contains so that you can work with it properly when making chocolate confections, decorations, candies and when baking with it.
You will go on to learn to temper/crystalize chocolate. If you have ever melted chocolate and then tried to drizzle cookies with it only to find that later all the cookies stuck together or the coating on your cake pops went soft … no more! We will teach you a very straight-forward method to tempering chocolate (the Seeding method) so that you will be able to create your own chocolate bars, cute confections and cake decorations at home.
Together we make hand-rolled truffles, we learn to dip cake pops/cake truffles in chocolate the way the pros do it. We go on to make solid chocolate shapes and bonbons. You will also learn to work with cocoa butter transfer sheets to make very cute and sophisticated decorated chocolate discs.
Note: we use equipment readily available to people who want to work with chocolate in smaller amounts in their own kitchens.
You will go home with a large box of fine Belgian chocolate confections to share ….. or not! along with very detailed instructions and recipes.
