We will work on making the puff pastry dough – the pâte feuillétée, from scratch. Pâte feuillétée is that flaky, buttery pastry dough that is the base of so many French recipes both savory & sweet. Puff pastry is needed for the galette des Rois, the Napoleon, also known as the mille-feuille. The combination of 4 simple ingredients combined with this special technic for incorporating the dough and the butter, results in that light pastry that we have come to know.
The class requires you to have a certain level of experience in baking as some more advanced methods are used during this class. Beginner bakers should try their hand at our introductory French desserts class.
