Lesson 1….

Please select a featured image for your post

So today was my first (but the rest of the group’s second) pastry making lesson at ITS and puff pastry – which takes some muscle and a lot of waiting around time and short pastry – which takes less time to make than it does to defrost – were on the menu. The puff pastry is on the agenda for next week as this needs to rest for a while – a little like the ‘owner’ – while the shortcrust pastry was made into the casing for a quice lorraine. Not my favourite filling – for my homework version I’ll opt for fig and gorgonzola – or roasted vegetable and pesto egg…
Good mix of people on the course, young and older, male and female and enthusiastic homes cooks to pro chefs are amongst the mix.
Didn’t take any pictures but am loving the outfit… let’s see if the drawstring waisted trousers will stretch far enough by week 14. You should see what’s coming in a couple of weeks….. I’ll share some recipes as I go along on www.indulge.com.mt/foodanddrink
