Kouign Amann has been around since the late 1800s. It was unknown to the US market until relatively recently where it now has a cult-like following. Known as butter cakes in Brittany (kouign means cake and amann means butter), it is like a croissant with a sweet, crunchy caramel crust encasing a flaky, buttery center. In class, you’ll learn how to laminate dough, which is an essential technique for kouign amann and many iconic pastries, like croissants and danishes. We’ll make them plain and with various fillings. Get your sweet tooth ready!
