Dough is a versatile part of any chef's repertoire. In this class we will make a classic pastry dough and a yeast-based pizza dough as well as discussing the difference between dessert dough's and entree dough's. 

Week 4 - Nov 25th: Cooking is an Art; Baking is a Science
For our finale class we will be baking the perfect cake! While the cake is cooling and getting ready to decorate we will discuss some baking science experiments, such as what happens if you forget to add baking soda or an egg to a recipe. The class will finish by decorating their own mini cakes to take home.
