Saturdays at the Garden Kitchen are held monthly at The Garden Kitchen. These events offer a physical activity class, a food demonstration (you get to try all the food and take home the recipes!), and a gardening class.
In this class, you’ll learn key techniques for working with a yeasted dough, creating a butter-laminated dough (layering the dough with butter and folding it over), proofing them to achieve the right texture, and finally, baking them to a rich golden brown. When you taste the buttery flavor of your croissants fresh from the oven, you’ll be so happy that you made the investment in making them from scratch.
Cost: $75. Register here.
There’s an approximate 45-60 minute wait while the croissants proof and bake. Students are encouraged to enjoy lunch or shopping in River Center during downtime. Students may also opt to take their croissants home to bake.
The last time we checked, there were only a few tickets available so act quickly!
