Cooking Class: Delightful French Pastries

In this hands-on cooking class, Chef Eric will teach you how to make buttery, flaky pastry dough that will elevate your pies, tarts and galettes. You’ll first use fresh, seasonal ingredients to create fruit filling for a unique fruit tartlet. Next, you’ll utilize traditional French techniques to craft pâte à choux (delicate pastry dough), which serves as the base for savory gougères, a cheese pastry with Gruyère and bright herbs. And let’s not forget the profiteroles: cream puffs filled with ice cream. To drizzle on top of your creations, you’ll handcraft a luscious chocolate sauce from scratch.
