Join French-trained Pastry Chef Lisa Allen in an inspired half-day of tart-making fun! She will guide your group through a fully immersive, hands-on experience creating your own French tarts. Each workshop will focus on something unique from the classic French repertoire.
Bake it all from scratch in Lisa’s quaint Parisian apartment. Coffee, tea or hot chocolate will be available to get your hands going, as well as some light savory snacks. Taste your creations ‘sur place’ and/or receive a box to take your personal-sized tarts home. Each participant also receives a detailed recipe and technique sheet, so that you can recreate the magic chez vous!
Tarte à la figue: Learn to make this French classic from fresh ingredients, including a hand-made crust, a luxurious almond frangipane cream, and plenty of ‘insider secrets’ for making the tastiest, beautiful tart with fresh fruit. Note: This recipe contains nuts and dairy.
