France has long been envied for its beautiful pastry shops. My first job in my industry was in a famous pastry shop in my childhood city of Libourne. Monsieur Lopez was a master pastry chef , who only strived for perfection in his work. It was a very good school for a young boy whose ambition was to work around the world! Yes pastry is about discipline.
In this workshop we look at a few French classics that call for different techniques.
A three-course lunch will served at the end of the workshop.
- Tartes/thin apples/chocolate/lemon
- Chocolate and vanilla eclairs (choux buns)
- Pithiviers (Almond puff cake)
- Strawberry sponge (fraisier)
