That’s right – we were trusted to create TWO items today! I must say, it was quite the undertaking. It is so much more difficult to multitask with two new recipes in an unfamiliar kitchen with 9 other people all trying to do the same things. We made a butter pound cake with candied fruit and madeleines, a cake-like tea cookie. The results were ‘magnifique’ according to chef, but I can’t say they were my favourite thus far…AK seemed to like the madeleines but really, I think she’d eat anything sweet!
It was a very interesting demonstration though – the chef had some different ideas on how to create cake dough that I thought were big no-no’s. I assumed going into the practical kitchen today, it would be a breeze but that was certainly not the case.
And for tomorrow I offer only a teaser = chantilly cream is only part of this classic patisserie delight.
