Cooking Class: Traditional French Pastry Treasures

Imagine yourself in a French bakery while making sweet pastries in this hands-on cooking class. A chef instructor will teach you the secrets to French baking and how to craft a laminated dough from scratch to make three sweet treats. First, make palmier cookies dusted with cinnamon sugar. Fold the dough and fill it with crisp apples for gooey and crispy apple turnovers. Then, embark on a baking journey to make a decadent Kouign-Amann, a cake with buttery, airy layers. Plus, learn baking techniques you can take back to your own kitchen.
