Of all the pastry dough recipes there are, pâte à choux is by far the most unique. Nothing compares to it – from the way it is made to its flavor and texture. Baked, fried or simmered, it can be used as a garnish, appetizer, main course or dessert. In this class, Katharine Wright will show you how to make this amazing dough, then shape, bake, and fill it to create both classic to modern pastries. You will make: chocolate-dipped eclairs with vanilla pastry cream; citrus-glazed cream puffs with chantilly cream; chouquettes; choux au craquelin with pistachio cream; and manchego and smoked paprika gougeres.
