It was a Monday night, and I almost did not make it to our French Pastry Class. Thank God I did not let work get in the way (pat on the back for me). Thanks to a good friend who saw this on Living Social, we had four hours of (educational) fun making macarons and eclairs! It was a good deal because we didn't only learn how to make the lovely pastries, but we got to bring them home too and aheeemmm... impress people (like my hubby - as if he needs impressing haha). And it was just a small group - 7 students divided into 2 teams and our really nice teacher, Christie. Very hands-on, and you can ask-questions-all-you-want. Not bad for 60 bucks.
Plated Dessert made of Swan Eclairs
I'm with Team Pink French Macarons
Neapolitan with Pastry Cream and Blackberries & Blueberries
Eclair with Almonds
My take-away box (there were probably 30 pieces there)!
Our Class at the Cook Au Vin Kitchen (our two other classmates were HILARIOUS) so that made the night so much fun! And Christie, our teacher, was the best. You just know she's been doing this all her life and she loves it. So inspiring.
