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.

What an absolutely wonderful, multi-sensory experience we had with Chef Eric! It was fun, lighthearted, and so educational. Not only did we learn how to make fresh pasta (an easy but time-intensive labor of love, but totally worth it -- tastes so much better than dried/boxed pasta), but also how to properly hold a knife, chop onions, keep herbs fresh, and prepare sauces and cooked noodles properly. Chef Eric was warm and engaging and made us feel so welcome in his beautiful and organized home kitchen. We are grateful to have learned his craft and techniques, and actually just made more homemade pasta today, as well as his perfect pesto sauce (mmmm), AND we even resuscitated some wilted basil with his greenhouse hack. Thank you Chef Eric, you are truly a gem!
