When stone fruit and berries overflow at farmers market stands and grocery store shelves, there's a palpable excitement over the multitude of flavors as well as what the summer means: long days and vacations! In this class, we will bake recipes that celebrate the rich bounty of California fruit in the summer (though these recipes will work with fruit from any season). You'll work in teams to prepare perfect flaky pie dough, and learn how to prepare the gems of the season and let them shine. These are easy and approachable recipes for bakers at all levels, suitable for gatherings and special occasions! 



Santa Rosa Plum Crostata with Cardamom Frangipane - flaky dough encasing a smooth almond filling scented with cardamom

Flourless Chocolate Roulade with Whipped Cream and Roasted Strawberries - a show-stopping easy-to-make chocolate cake perfect for a celebration or a barbeque
