Luxe Pastries! Pâte a Choux! With Chef Valentine

June 7, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Move over Macarons!!! You are so yesterday … Kidding, we loveyou, but today the new craze straight from France is Pâte a Choux! So what is Pâte a Choux? Known to some of you as “choux pastry”, they are a family of dessert, big and small puffs, all made with the same dough base, which we call “Pâte a Choux”.
No baking experience? Worried it will betoo difficult and you won’t be able to do it again at home? You might have taken a macaron class before or another cooking/baking class, and once at home felt very discouraged… after many trials, you thought just is just a fantasy dish reserved only for elite cooks and bakers… But not with Valentine! We promise this is an easy one to do at home, no fancy equipment, oven and ingredients are required, and Valentines techniques are foolproof, you can-do at home!
And what comes out from it? Well the possibilities are endless, but here are a few things you will learn in this class:

Gougères: the savory version, with cheese added in the dough
Chouxa la crème: the classic cream puff
Profiteroles: the choux is filled with vanilla ice cream and covered with warm chocolate sauce
Chouquettes: cute and simple little puff simply covered with crunchy sugar bits, a childhood fav!
Eclairs a la pistache: the long version of the choux, filled with pistachio cream

This class is partly hands-on. Please bring a container to take some home!
To register for this class please stop by the shop, call 604 428-3700 or email info@poshpantry.ca. Payment is required toconfirm your space, no seats can be held.
