Pastry Course Day Two: Choux Pastry
Last Monday it was pastry day again. This time we learned all about choux pastry. You can use choux pastry to make profiteroles (cream puffs), croquembouches, éclairs etc.
We had to work in pairs to make the choux pastry. Making the batter went okay, it’s just that my arm got really tired of the constant mixing of the batter. I was really glad that we were making this in pairs! I should really start training my mixing arm!
I ended up making a couple of little and large cream puffs.
I also made some choux pastry swans.
I went home with a box filled with goodies!
All-in-all I’ve learned a lot this week and can’t wait till next lesson!
