In this class, we’ll be sculpting tarts sweet and savory deserving of a permanent exhibition in the MoMa. We’ll concentrate on two types of dough to use as our canvas to create masterpiece tarts: sweet pie dough (pate sucree) and savory pie dough (pate brisee). With these delectable, flaky, buttery muses, it won’t be long until your Dali, Lautrec, O’Keefe, Picasso, and beyond shine through. We’ll pair ingredients that sing harmoniously while crafting textures, colors, and designs that express what’s on your mind. We promise you will remarkably improve your pastry skills and create beautiful works that indulge your creative side and sweet tooth and savory buds. Channel your inner artist and come to our kitchen where beauty comes naturally. We will show you the top secrets of the tart world that are sure to dazzle the brightest art lover and foodie, whether they have a sweet or savory palette!
