The Croissants Class
 

Behold the power of butter.  And yeast.  And a little (not a lot) of sugar.  Croissants are the pinnacle of Viennoiserie, and their success depends not on a culinary degree but close attention to simple techniques and a basic understanding of the chemistry of butter, gluten, sugar and moisture.  Join us for an intense, 6-hour course on the fundamentals of each step of the laminated dough process. You will mix, form, chill, fold and shape your doughs at every step of the process into several different pastries and take home both the finished product and nearly ready plaque to continue working with.

The Steps: Preferment; Lamination; Turns; Proofing


Plain Croissants; Pain au Raisin; Pain au Chocolat; Ham and Cheese; Almond
