Sustainable Sweets: Modern Pastry Techniques for the Home Cook

Event Navigation

From our organizers:

Learn simple hacks from a professional chef to turn leftover ingredients and scraps into mouthwatering desserts!
This hands-on workshop will teach you traditional pastry techniques with a modern twist. You’ll gain the skills to transform otherwise discarded food items into delicious treats (plus a bonus drink).

After receiving demos on creating a variety of different cakes, mousses, sauces, & garnishes — while sampling some of Chef Anna’s creations throughout the process — you’ll get to roll up your sleeves and dive in, creating your own parfait jars to take home under the guidance of our expert chef. You’ll also leave with recipes on everything we cover in class.

Whether you’re trying to knock out food waste from your kitchen, become a more versatile cook, or just enjoy a fun “food-forward” Saturday afternoon — this is the class for you!
