Cooking School

Posted By Linda Capeloto Sendowski On March 15, 2012 @ 1:08 AM In Baking,Cookbook | No Comments

The last two months I have been taking a class on Pastry making.  I had such a wonderful experience.  A small class with hands on participation, what could be better?  The class was once a week in the evening from 6 until 10 or later PM.  We learned classical technique and recipes, like crème patisserie, genoise, puff pastry, chocolate tempering, caramel, mousse, brioche and more.  I can’t even express how much I enjoyed the class, especially when I needed something to take my mind off of other things. [1]

Tonight was the final and I wanted to share with you some of the fantastic final projects the 7 of us made.  I made the dark chocolate piped rectangle daquoise cake with salted chocolate caramel ganache and chocolate buttercream.  Also the daquoise stacks with piped chocolate and almond meringue layers.  One student made a giant napoleon, one made a puff pastry de-constructed apple tartan with honey lavender ice cream.  There was also French Macaron, intricately decorated cupcakes, and a pie with layers of caramel, ganache and a cocoa nib Florentine on top.  Thanks to everyone, especially Clemence at the Gourmandise School [2] in Santa Monica, California.

I hope you all enjoy the pictures.  Tomorrow Passover planning begins.
