From the golden dough to the rich fillings, choux simply don’t leave one indifferent.
Thankfully for us, the gluttonous of this world, it is rather simple to make.
LIES (you say)
No. No lies. (I reply)
They’re über easy when it’s Jessica teaching you.
A charming Irish lady who fell in love with Montreal two years ago, Jessica runs bakery workshops on weekends. No need to sign up your life to the Lincoln Apartment Bakery however. Unlike other places, you can simply show up for one session and learn some techniques to master your favorite indulgence. Even unskilled students are welcome. I managed to put more butter on my apron than in the saucepan throughout the session and I still left feeling like a chef.
On today’s menu? Lemon cream puff and éclairs au chocolat.
Jessica’s classes are interactive. With Elvis serenading us, we all quickly got down to work, starting with the dough.
We cooked, stirred, whisked, mixed, and put our small mounds of golden–puffs-to-be in the oven.
Et voilà! I filled the take-away box to pack some of those precious goodies and show off my newly acquired skills. Thanks a ton Jessica for the lovely morning and see you soon! Info on how to book below.
