What better way explore the flavors of a rich,warming French winter breakfast than making some of France's (and the world's) most outstanding pastries? Croissants and Brioche rule the world's breakfast tables to this day and there are countless recipes and many traditions of how these are made. In this class we take a culinary journey to France to understand the history, the traditions and the baking techniques around them. 

Then we go from breakfast to lunch and prepare one of the most iconic French foods together: Crêpes - and their cousin, the Galette. Often underrated or badly executed we learn the art making perfect Crêpes from our culinary intructor Anna Mays, who not only lived in France for many years but studied French Culinary Art at the Cordon Bleu.

Together we will create a meal you would prepare in the French country, drawing inspiations from what is availabe around us, here in Vermont: Butter for the Croissants, buckwheat for Galette, innovative seasonal fillings for our Crêpes. And of course, all will be served with warm café au lait, tea and chocolate grand-mère.

Most importantly we look at the culinary and pastry techniques that help you when you return to your home kitchen, making recipes accessible for home use.
