A fantastic hands on class learning how to create Eclairs, savoury and sweet. I was a little nervous about attending as I am not much of a baker but Elaine made you feel at ease straight away. This class caters to all levels of bakers and is so well explained. I loved the range of Elaine's recipes we got to make and all the small tips that I picked up along the way. I would recommend this class and others that Elaine holds as she is very knowledgable, professional and passionate about what she teaches. Great afternoon spent in the kitchen, learning how to create Eclairs and best of all we got to take them home to share with family and friends.
I came away from this class with so much more than delectable eclairs.
Elaine's passion for her craft is evident from the first minute of the class to the end. She has organized a wonderful collection of recipes and techniques. From different methods of thickening fillings, both savoury and sweet, to creating silky glazes her explanations and demonstrations were enlightening. She hadn't even started making the pastry and I could see ways that I could make use of the things she was teaching us beyond using them with eclairs. She also showed us simple ways of doing things that, at first, appeared to be difficult. These are the things that you can't learn by reading a cookbook. It was a lot of fun trying to fill and glaze the eclairs. I ended up a sticky mess as this was my first attempt, but I'm looking forward to more practice. Thankfully, Elaine has provided a well produced collection of the recipes and tips/techniques from the class as a take home. This means I can start with something I am familiar with rather than searching the internet for the best information. In the meantime, I enjoyed every bite of the eclairs that I took home.
It was an amazing class and journey making Savoury and sweet eclairs. The experience with Elaine was amazing she made you feel at home while learning how to make amazing eclairs. She is a very talented and has a passion for teaching I would definitely recommend her classes.
