Event Details

When people tour NOCCA, their first response is usually, "I wish I could've gone to school here." Well, now they can - at least for one very special afternoon! Join Chef Dana D'Anzi Tuohy for some hands-on work in NOCCA's Emeril Lagasse Foundation Culinary Arts Studio.

Chef Dana is the former Chef de Cuisine at Delmonico Steakhouse, the former Pastry Chef at Emeril's New Orleans Fish House, and the chair of NOCCA's Culinary Arts program. She'll teach you to make two classic holiday treats: 

croquembouche* The Bûche de Noël (or Yule Log) is a flourless chocolate cake rolled with chocolate cream and frosted with chocolate ganache to resemble a snow-covered log garnished with meringue mushrooms. Students will learn to make this dish from scratch under Chef Dana's guidance.
* Croquembouche is a traditional French dessert consisting of caramel-glazed cream puffs piled high on a serving platter. Chef Dana will demonstrate the classic way to make this dish, including its halo of spun caramel.

This class is limited to 15 students. Tuition includes hands-on instruction and a tasting of desserts, complete with a sampling of dessert wines. Students will go home with the Bûche de Noël that they've created in class!

NOTE: Cooking utensils and aprons will be provided. Please come dressed in proper attire, including long pants or a long skirt and closed-toed shoes.
