Lesson #10: Petit Fours

22 Jul

It’s hard to believe I’m half way through my semester.  Although it has not been a taxing schedule, it has certainly flown by!  Today we created a few different petit fours, which translates to ‘small oven’ but is really just a small treat served after a meal or as part of a larger dessert.

Here they are:

Marshal’s batons above and raisin biscuits below…nothing epic about either of them other than it’s easy to eat many due to their size!

Oh and here is my new love:

Vanilla powder = heaven!  We use it exclusively at school, it’s amazing and I found it at G. Detou, a patissier’s one-stop shop for ingredients (the chocolate section was unbelievable).  I have yet to use the powder here in the apartment.  The lack of an oven limits my baking capabilities…

Tomorrow – tartlettes, be sure to check back!
