This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.
Pie crusts can be intimidating. The threat of mushy, under-cooked undersides and the fear of rolling out concentric dough has kept many people from trying their hand at this pastry classic. Enter the galette. Galettes have all the flavor of pies but are far more low key. No blind baking and no tedious crust crimping. They are the pastry equivalent of the dinner guest who always knows what to say and gets along with everyone.
Not only will you learn the timeless technique of making galettes, you'll also be inspired by Marie's inventiveness with spring produce. Conquer your fear of stinging nettles and perhaps use tarragon for the first time! Join us as we learn how to make beautiful and flaky crusts while saluting the season with fillings that feature the produce of spring.
