Today we had our first class of Chinese New Year Petit Gateau Special! Thank you so much for all the students who joined the class and for those of you joining soon, please look forward to it ^^! In this special class, we will be making 4 items of cookies and cakes in the span of 4 hours. Each recipe is simple yet unique and exquisite. I hope that this class gives you some idea on what to bake for the coming CNY holidays! I also designed this class for the Valentine’s Day, so we will bake some cakes in lovely heart shape!
Here is a brief introduction on what we will bake for this class.
Tigre, meaning “Tiger” in French, is a petit (small) chocolate financier, a butter cake made from egg white, almond powder, burre noisette (burnt butter) and others. It has chocolate chip inside and also chocolate ganache on top, which looks like a tiger pattern. Because of the rich almond powder, the cake is moist and can be eaten both warm and cold.
Earl Grey Tea Buttercake
This Earl Grey Tea Buttercake also has a nice almond flavor. We use a ‘secret’ ingredient for this cake to make it moist and nice. Earl grey tea goes well with citric fruits, so you can add orange peel or lemon peel in the cake. In the class, we add some dried apricot.
And here are the cookies.
Pistachio & Chocolat Sable and Caramel Nuts Sable
The cookies could be more complicated than the cake. For Pistachio Chocolat Sable, we make two kinds of dough and combine it together like the photo. Another cookie, Caramel Nuts Sable, is a vanilla flavored cookie filled with caramelized nuts. In the class we use almond and walnuts, but you can replace them with other nuts such as pecan nuts, hazelnuts and macadamia nuts. Both cookies are ‘iced box cookie’, and you can freeze them up to 2 weeks, so will be perfect to bake for special occasions!
Here are the schedule for this class. We still have seats on January 24th (Saturday) class. I will also be repeating this class in one of the February weekend.
