Back by popular demand! The Celtic Cultural Alliance presents Celtic Baking classes focusing on two Celtic favorites, scones and shortbread. Last year, these classes sold out quickly so we are offering two sessions each of the most popular classes.
These classes will be taught at McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub by Katie Michael, Pastry Chef and Front of House Manager. In these classes, you will learn the history of each item, how to make it, and of course sampling and taking home of your treats!
The cost for each class is $15. Space is limited, don’t wait to sign up!
Scones are buttery and flaky with the texture of a biscuit. They are usually topped with raw sugar or icing. The first known reference to scones was in 1513 and they have been extremely popular in Ireland, Scotland and England ever since.
Shortbread originated in Scotland and its popularity spread throughout the United Kingdom. This recipe comes from the family of Neville Gardner, owner of the Red Stag Pub. When Neville was growing up in Northern Ireland, money was tight and recipes were kept simple.
