Virtual AS 1

In this hands-on virtual class, bakers will tackle sweet galettes with the seasonal fruit of your choice, like mixed berries, apples, cherries or rhubarb.

The link for this program will be emailed to those who register.

Registration is required. 

Due to the limited number of available spots, please cancel your reservation if you are no longer able to attend. 

The recipes will be emailed to those who register one week ahead of time.

Trendy and tricky enough to interest seasoned pie bakers yet approachable enough for those too intimidated by pies, galettes will become your new conduit for seasonal produce.

You'll apply the basics of preparing and handling galette pastry. You'll learn how to prepare and arrange fruity galette fillings so that their texture is divine and they also look stunning. And we'll make some fresh whipped cream to top them off.

Gluten free and vegan friendly recipe variations are available. 

If you choose those alternatives, please refer to the recipes for specific ingredients.
