Ever wonder how to make those tender hollow little cream puff shells? Well, join us to find out in this hands-on class! We'll share the history and teach you the basic techniques of creating sweet and savory pastries from pâte à choux (pronounced, pot-a-shoo) dough. You'll make your own craquelin-topped cream puffs, along with pastry cream to fill them, and savory gougères (a blend of pâte à choux dough and cheese). These recipes will kick your entertaining up several notches.
You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and the cream puffs, pastry cream, and savory gougères you made in class.
What our guests have to say about this class:
There are so many different uses for this dough. I didn't realize you could make them savory. —Betty L.
This class was so much fun and informative. I can use the knowledge from this class in so many ways. —Patrice M.
I never thought I would feel confident to try these at home, but now it seems doable. All of the baking classes are fun and make things that appear difficult on TV much easier in practice. This has been my favorite course yet. —Anon.

My Weigh Kitchen Scale
A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!
The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. Shipping is included in the price.
