Paris French Eclair and Choux Pastry Dessert Class

About this activity
The word comes from French eclair, meaning "flash of lightning", so named because it is eaten quickly (in a flash). In this 2.5 hour course, you will learn how to work with a pastry bag and create garnishes and fillings like classic vanilla, pistachio, coffee or chocolate flavored pastry cream crème pâtissière. You will also learn how to glaze your eclairs with fondant icing. And as choux dough offers a very broad palette of specialties you will also do some chouquettes and some individual petits choux garnis.

With the help of your chef, you will perform all the steps. At the end of the course, if you haven't enjoyed your creations on the spot, you may take them with you.

You will learn some specific techniques including:
• Drying Batter: Working the mixture over the stove.

Absolutely amazing experience. My girlfriend and I had an amazing time learning how to make the perfect eclairs. Julie was so helpful and we feel confident enough in this technique that we've made eclairs back in the comfort of our own home to rave reviews from friends and family.
