Puff pastry, or pâte feuilletée, is the finest example of the luscious, flakey layers you can achieve through lamination — the art of carefully layering together butter and dough as many times as physically possible before baking it to crispy perfection. Join us in this hands-on class with Emma Le Du and learn how it is done. In this class you’ll fold in hundreds of buttery layers on your way to making both chicken and vegetarian vol au vent (beautifully stuffable towers of puff pastry); galette des rois (sweet and flakey almond cake), a fun and lovely French tradition in the month of January); and palmiers (crisp cinnamon sugar cookies).
