Classic Custards, Cheesecake & Pot de Crème with Pastry Chef Natasha Goellner
Join us for this 3-hour pastry fundamentals class where you’ll enter into an incredible 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.
Expect lots of cooking instructions as you work alongside Pastry Chef Natasha Goellner while she teaches the fundamentals of making perfect custards and cheesecakes.
She’s an engaging professional with tons of experience. Chef is a graduate of The French Culinary Institute, past owner of Mulberry & Mott and currently the Pastry Chef at The Antler Room, so you can be assured you’re in very capable hands.
Perfecting custards requires an understanding of eggs and their properties, and Chef will cover all the angles. The possibilities are endless when it comes to custards.
Chef will begin by teaching you to make a basic Crème Anglaise Sauce and then process into ice cream, which you’ll get to taste at the end of class. Yum.
You’ll move on to learn several more custard applications to create lovely desserts such a fancy-schmancy Pot de Crème and a classic Cheesecake.
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.
You’ll gain a practical and serious understanding of the many techniques used in creating perfect custards and cheesecakes from a real pro and leave today’s informative class with the confidence to re-create them in your own kitchen.
