Baking School: Weeks 6, 7 & 8

12 Nov

I know, I’ve been slacking on my Baking School updates, there’s been a lot going on the past couple days/weeks: Lots of friend’s birthdays, two of my best friends from college bought a house and another best friend got engaged! So much to be excited and thankful for with Thanksgiving just around the corner.

We’ve been moving along pretty fast the past 3 baking classes.

Week 6 we made:

  • Palmiers
  • Tarte aux poires en cage (Individual Pear Tarts with Lattice)
  • Galette aux fruits de saison (Seasonal Fruit Galette)

     

Week 7 we made:

  • Linzer Torte
  • Tarte Flambee

    

Week 8 we made:

  • Brioche: Nanterre and Parisienne
  • Scones
  • Blueberry Muffins
  • Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread

     

    

Week 8 is definitely one of my favorites so far! I’ve made enough tarts in the past couple weeks to do in my sleep so I’m happy to be moving on to breads, muffins and so much more!

Keep an eye out for some great posts coming up. With Thanksgiving, Christmas and some other special occasions right around the corner I’ll be spending most of my nights by the oven!

Baking School – Week 5

24 Oct

Well it was another successful baking class this week! We made a whole new batch of puff pastry, baked a Napoleon and a Fruit Tart from the Puff Pastry we made last week and we finally got to ice our Reine de Saba chocolate cake!

     

At this point in the class I feel that I can make pastry cream in my sleep and roll out enough puff pastry to feed NYC. I’m beginning to feel like a real baker!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe and I’m going to do my very best to change that ASAP! Leave a comment with some suggestions! I’ve already had a couple:

1) Petits Fours            2) Apple Pie

             

What are your thoughts?

Check back soon for some delicious treats! Also, thanks Jimmy for the great pictures 🙂

Enjoy!
