Join us for a 3-hour pastry arts master class where you’ll enter into an intimate one-on-one cooking experience with a seasoned pastry chef and instructor. 

It’s your chance to step behind the scenes and into the world of a culinary pro. In this limited enrollment class, expect lots of individualized cooking time as you work alongside Pastry Chef Erik Sharp and he teaches the fundamentals of making perfect custards and cheesecakes. He’s an engaging professional with tons of experience such as Pastry Chef for Kansas City’s renowned American Restaurant, former owner of Three Spoons of Sugar and much  more, so you can be assured you’re in good hands tonight.

Creating perfect custard requires an understanding of eggs and their properties.  Chef will teach several custard applications to create lovely dishes such as Espresso Crème Brûléewith Chocolate Sauce and a hard-caramel top, as well as a traditional Vanilla Crème Brûléewith caramel crème sauce. That’s not all, you’ll also learn a classic Pot de Crème, even a savory Quiche!  The possibilities are endless when it comes to custards.

Then, he’ll move on to a lesson on cheesecakes. Making cheesecakes from scratch isn’t as hard you might imagine – they’re egg-based and have some fundamental techniques that apply to their preparation: proper mixing and measurement techniques, cooking with low heat, cooling to avoid shrinkage, chilling and lots of other factors that make for a perfect cheesecake. Today, Chef will teach you to make a Lemon Cheesecake topped with fresh fruit. Yum! 

In this informative class, you’ll gain a practical and serious understanding of the many techniques used in creating perfect custards and cheesecakes so you can re-create them in your own kitchen.
