The Italian Bakeshop: Sfogliatelle

Duration: 3½ hoursType: In-PersonPrice: $140

Sometimes called a lobster tail in the United States, the sfogliatelle is a deliciously crisp Italian pastry filled with sweet cream filling, perfect for breakfast, brunch, afternoon tea, or even dessert. Join Laura Pyles to learn just how to roll out foot after foot of paper-thin dough laminated with layers and layers of butter. In this class you’ll make sfogliatelle dough, homemade ricotta, and homemade almond paste. You’ll stuff your dough with a variety of traditional fillings: cinnamon, candied orange peel, and ricotta; almond cream; and berry mascarpone; and dive into these crispy swirls right out of the oven.
