What are the differences between these French pastry doughs: Pâte brisée, pâte sablé, pâte feuillété, pâte à sucre? How do you make them? What is the purpose of kneading dough or letting it rest? How do you troubleshoot your dough? This class will take you through the basics of consistently making the perfect dough. In addition to savory and sweet doughs, we will also show you how to make a basic bread dough. Our Dough Making class is part of our Fundamental kitchen series, which includes sauce making and knife skills. These classes can be taken together as a package or individually and will give you a good base in the kitchen for both amateur and more advanced home cooks. In this class, you will not only make the doughs but also two preparations using our dough: Quiche, a multi-grain baguettine (mini baguette), sugar cookies and the tarte fine aux pommes.

Chef Eric will guide you through the techniques of dough making while explaining the steps necessary for perfect dough making and helping you determine what can go wrong and how (if possible), you can fix it. We’ll end the class with a light tasting of your preparations along with a glass of wine. You will take home a pâte sablé and a pâte à tarte big enough to make pies for 6-8 people, to use at home.

Recipes will be emailed to you along with a troubleshooting guide.

Examples of doughs we will cover:

  • Pâte sablé
  • Pâte feuillété
  • Pâte brisé
  • Pâte sucré
  • Basic bread dough
