12-14 August- African Relish – Prince Albert-MASTERING PASTRY – with Jacques Erasmus.
The pastry chef is an envied and revered member of the culinary team. Pastry making is sometimes perceived as difficult, impossible and many suffer from fear of failure when attempting to make it. So if the terms puff, choux, short-crust, filo and hot water paste fill you will dread…..then the time has come to put aside those feelings of inadequacy and conquer the art of pastry and open a whole new world of culinary pleasures. Master chef Jacques Erasmus shares his skill and delicate touch as he guides us through the simple steps of this perceived minefield. The course will focus on the basics of pastry making with an emphasis on common pitfalls that face the amateur. We will look at ingredients and techniques for foolproof pastry making and experiment with some classics such as brioche and croissants, sweet short crust and filo amongst others. Before you finish rolling out the puff you will begin to feel like a maestro yourself. Virna Gouws Tel +27 23 541 1381 Fax +27 23 541 1386 Cell +27 72 582 8749
