Japanese Cookie Cream Puff & Strawberry Green Tea Eclair*

7 Mar

DSC_0246

March Basic class is Japanese Cookie Cream Puffs & Green Tea Strawberry Eclairs.

Choux pastries have always been popular items in the class! I have done many variations of Cream puffs and Eclairs, as well as Paris brest in the past. This time I will be introducing a Green Tea flavored Eclair for the first time ^^*.

The eclair crust has some maccha powder, and inside is green tea flavored creme patissiere (custard cream) and creme chantilly (whipped cream). I will be demonstration exactly like the photo and will pipe two types of creams in different layers, but for transport safety you can combine the cream and pipe out in light green color tone. Both are nice and tasty.

c0182810_19582254

As for the Japanese Cookie Choux, we will be making a standard cream puff with crunchy and melty cookie on top. Inside will be vanilla flavored custard cream. Compared to the cream puffs I see in Malaysia, my cream puffs tastes more milky and creamy as it is a Japanese type!

DSC_1103

 

Hari Raya holiday is coming soon! So what is your plan for this holiday? Visiting family, relatives, travelling… or baking ^^*?

As for me, I will have classes till this weekend and will close shop from next Monday to Wednesday! I don’t have any plan during my holiday but sure will have some relaxing time with my family between my classes.

By the way, this Sunday we have Eclair au Cafe & Eclair au Caramel class! I have done many choux pastry classes in the past, but this one is specially focused on eclair making. Eclair is very similar to cream puff making, but the difference is in its long shape and slightly harder texture. It’s slightly more difficult to make but if you follow the right steps you can make a beautiful and delicious eclairs!

 

DSC_0725

 

 

We will make 2 kinds of eclairs in the class: Eclair au Cafe, eclairs with coffee cream and coating chocolate. And Eclair au Caramel, eclairs with salty bittersweet caramel and crispy hazelnuts on top. This crispy hazelnuts was a big hit among my family and friends who have tried them out!

You get to bring back Eclair au Cafe (7 pcs) and Eclair au Caramel (8 pcs), both in 12cm length.

Saint Honore Caramel*

5 Mar

DSC_0021

February and March Premier class menu is Saint Honore!

Saint Honore is one of the traditional French choux pastries. Did you know that the cream puff that you are familiar with is actually created in Japan and they almost do not exist in France? Instead, the puff pastries you see in France are mainly this Saint Honore, Paris Brest, and Eclair.

DSC_0046

Saint Honore normally consists with pie crust (or pate a sable), 3 mini choux and cream.

Our Saint Honore will be; pate foncer (salty pie crust), mini choux with caramel patissiere and caramel cream. The brown color part is caramel.

Saint Honore has various flavors and I also tried a few in the past.
