Puff Pastry Intensive

November 23, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Puff Pastry – a classic pastry dough that is made up of dozens of layers of butter and dough, resulting in delicate, light, golden, buttery flakes of incredible pastry that melts in your mouth. Working in teams of two and under the instruction of Executive Pastry Chef Michael Kalanty, you will learn to make your own multi-layered puffy pastry dough, followed by shaping, baking, and of course, tasting!

Learn to make:

  • Crûstades Champignons (Mushroom-stuffed pastry squares)

  • Pommes d’Apis (Apple-stuffed pastry pockets)

  • Palmiers

  • Savory Cheese Straws

  • Learn pantry techniques for Apple Compote and Savory Mushroom filling

Lunch will be served.

Upon return to his native Philadelphia, he introduced the city to his style of rustic, hand-crafted French classics. He was the Executive Pastry Chef at The Restaurant School in Philadelphia and wrote their degree-granting baking and pastry program.

His focus is taking professional baking and pastry techniques and making them accessible to ardent home chefs.
