Pâte à Choux or Choux pastry dough is what is used in making so many sexy French treats… Éclairs, Gougères (savory cheese puffs), Choux Salé, Chouquettes, Profiteroles (sweet cream puffs), Saint Honoré-Piece Monté (aka Croquembouche)…
During this 3-hour class, Alisa of Sweet Pea Paris, an American chef and cook book author who has called France her home for nearly 20 years now, will first teach you how to make the basic Pâte à Choux pastry dough before exploring the nearly infinite possibilities of what you can do with it!
You will make 4-5 sweet and savory (sucré et salé) French delicacies, along with the fillings and pastry creams that go in them. While making your delicious patisseries, you’ll get hands-on instruction, learn new baking techniques, hear stories of life in France, and even a get a glimpse of the river Seine.
Once the baking’s finished, it’s time to untie your apron and gather around Alisa’s big country-style table to snack on your choux and sip Champagne! La vie est belle!
