Event description

Description

With the summer heat behind us, it’s time to turn on your oven and dive back into baking. In this class, we’ll focus on tea cakes and cookies: both perfect for an afternoon treat. You’ll learn how toasting can be applied to nuts and grains to create nutty, rich flavors. We’ll explore how ingredients that you might associate with savory dishes, like saffron, can find their place in sweet preparations, too. And we’ll discuss the use of alternative flours with more flavor, like almond and semolina. Finally, you’ll get to make one of our favorite spiced cookies your own by shaking up the spice mix. By the end of this class, you’ll feel equipped to make, remake and reinvent a set of go-to sweet treats, be they for holiday entertaining or as the perfect end to a simple weeknight meal.


Note: This class does not include a full savory meal; it does include plenty of sweet eating.


Recipes: sesame and almond cookies, pistachio cardamom loaf cake, lemon almond pound cake, coconut saffron macaroons, and semolina polvorones

This is a hands-on cooking class led by Milk Street instructors.
