Slow Food Waitakere Croissant Class




On Sunday a small group of members from Slow Food Waitakere learned to make croissants from Allison of Gourmet Gannet.



The students


The teacher


After a demo we are all ready for hands-on!





It was a great class for everyone. We baked some croissants (plain and chocolate) on the spot, and we took some more home to freeze or bake. I baked some as soon as I got home, and they came out lovely (pics below). Thank you Allie for a lovely morning!

  9. @ Tamara, il traduttore e' lo stesso, ma non c'e' la ricetta dei croissants... non potrei pubblicarla (almeno non subito) per rispetto all'insegnante che ce l'ha data. Magari vuole metterla prima lei, o forse deve fare altre classi di croissants :-).

  11. Ma che belli che sono questi corsi. Perchè non si fanno nella mia città? Uffa! sarà stato un bel momento, anche perchè ci si scambiano tante ricettine tra partecipanti e si carpiscono tanti segreti che poi fanno la differenza nella preparazione del piatto.
