Venture down the rabbit hole to the Mad Hatter Tea Party, create confections fit for a queen, and maybe find out why a raven is like a writing desk.
You will spend the week creating classic confections while learning basic pastry techniques that will last a lifetime. You'll learn to whip meringue, develop piping techniques, separate and temper eggs, macerate fruit, and make jam, just to name a few. And take home treats for everyone to enjoy.
Each session allows you to grow and develop skills to be used the next day while also learning the importance of organization and cleanliness in the kitchen.
Day 1 - Scones and lemon curd
Day 2 - Classic fruit tart
Day 3 - Victoria sponge and tea sandwiches
Day 4 - Macarons
You may register your youth for an optional supervised lunch hour from 12-1 pm for the duration of this class.
