Puff Pastry *In-Person*

Puff pastry has multiple buttery layers which bake up beautifully to light, flaky, and crispy perfection. We will make traditional full puffs from scratch. Then, we'll turn our laminated dough into delicious turnovers, danish, palmiers, and other creative pastries. We’ll also talk about store-bought puff pastry and quick puff, and how to use them. We’ll enjoy our pastries in class and you'll also take home all the pastries you make. Instructor: Evelyn Schichner

Evelyn Schichner

Evelyn has been interested in baking and cooking all of her life. Growing up in a military family she was exposed to many cultures and cuisines. However, it was first watching Julia Child on PBS that cemented her love of French cooking. Julia not only offered authentic French recipes but she showed how you could have fun the kitchen - something Evelyn practices to this day! A few decades ago Evelyn decided to take her love of French cooking a step further by attending a week-long cooking school in Arles. That experience was so rewarding she attended a week-long class in Paris where she was introduced to classic French cooking. Now she goes to both Paris and the Provence region to take classes. Her knowledge and her library of recipes are continually expanding with each trip. She has been able to adapt the recipes and learned techniques to the American kitchen and is eager to pass on her knowledge to students of the CCAE - while having fun - OF COURSE!
