Oh, the egg! Not only do they fill hearty breakfast burritos and stretch leftovers into an substantial frittata to feed a family for dinner, eggs are the key to making some of our favorite light-as-air noshes thanks to the magic of meringues! Master your knowledge of egg science to create heavenly clouds, sweet and savory. In this class, you will work in teams to learn how to perfectly prepare each of the three types of meringue: French, Swiss, and Italian. You will use them in a variety of dishes and confections.
