Update on 6/10/2016: Unfortunately Honoré Bakery has been sold.
What should I try? Tough decision to make!
Everything was so refined and tempting. We came back home with a fantastic Pain au Levain, a Chocolate and Salted Caramel tart (maybe too much caramel), and a pretty good Milk Chocolate and Hazelnut mousse. I need to go back for the Kouign Aman. They have a fabulous one at Crumble and Flake but I would like to try this one.
I thought I knew how to bake tarts… but I wanted to get more recipes and learn a few tips and tricks.
My Sweet and Savory Tarts Class at The Pantry was a total success! Not only did I learn a lot, but it was fun, friendly and last but not least… delicious! Yes, I had a bite of each tart, pie and quiche.
Cooking classes take place in the back of the Delancey Pizza Restaurant in north Ballard. The room is cosy and really looks like a Pantry.
Our Teacher, Megan Gordon (www.asweetspoonful.comand author of Whole-Grain Mornings) was amazing, super nice and explained everything.
We learned how to properly prepare a good dough with some advice on ingredient choices and then made, in group of 2 or 3, different tarts and quiches:
– Savory apple tart with mustard and sharp cheddar
– Tomato tart with creme fraiche
– Artichoke and ricotta tart
– Quiche with Asparagus and goat cheese
– Strawberry Rhubarb Tart
I had the chance to have a spot for this class at the last minute (not really the last minute but the day before). I am very lucky as all classes are full booked till end of September and their wait lists are pretty long. But I hope I will be able to do another one soon.
