Better Butter Baking: Online Course

Course Overview

We know that butter makes it better. But which butter? Why unsalted? What’s behind the magic? We’ll make a batch of Kouign Amann, a French muffin-like pastry from the Brittany region with the flakiness of laminated dough and the crunch of caramelized sugar. Then we’ll move over to Austria to make a rich and tender Linzer Tart, with the option of scaling back the sweetness of the traditional raspberry jam filling with fresher flavors of rhubarb curd or blueberry compote. This class will meet for about an hour the preceding evening to make the Kouign Amann dough, which must chill overnight, and a tart filling. A shopping list and recipes will be provided, along with instructions to have ingredients ready to go when class begins.
