Pâte à Choux is a light pastry dough that contains only butter, water, flour and eggs. Instead of a raising agent, it employs high moisture content to create steam during cooking which puffs the pastry into its many delicious forms including Éclairs, Cream Puffs, Profiteroles and Gougères.

In today’s workshop we’ll make an iconic French pastry, the Paris-Brest (which was named for the Paris-Brest-Paris bicycle race) and consists of a round choux pastry (shaped like a bicycle wheel) with a luscious praline cream….that we’ll likely devour entirely in class, PLUS some Choux Buns Religieuse (two stacked choux buns) that you’ll fill with pastry cream and decorate to take home and enjoy.

$95 per student includes 3hr workshop and recipes PLUS eat-and-take-home-what-you-make!
