The Art of Baking Danish Pastry
Do you know the taste of a fresh butter baked Danish pastry? During this hands-on class, you will learn to bake Danish happiness (dansk hygge).
A professional pastry chef with many years of experience will guide you through all the different baking techniques and tips including kneading, rolling and folding a Danish pastry dough with butter. We will make a selection of 4 different kinds of traditional and delicious Danish pastry. For example delicious cinnamon snails, beautifully turned frøsnappere with marzipan remonce and spandauere with custard.
The classes will have a break with coffee/tea, where you can taste some of your Danish pastries and exchange your cultural and baking experiences. You can take the rest of the Danish pastries home and share with your family or friends. You work in pairs, so if you book this class alone, please note that you will work together with another baking enthusiast. But this is also a great chance to meet new people.
What is included
- Ingredients and instruction.
- Coffee and tea.
- Packaging for transport so you can take them home.
- All recipes will be sent by email after the event.
- Some Danish pastry dough that you can freeze and bake at home.
The whole process of making Danish pastry is a challenge and time consuming. We have therefore prepared a dough in advance so we have time to make, bake and taste the Danish pastries. When they rise before being baked, we will then make a new dough from scratch, so you will go through the whole process during the class.
Please note that the class may take a little longer, so we recommend that you arrive 10 minutes before the class starts.
Children from the age of 11 are welcome in the class if they buy a ticket and participate with a paying adult. Children from the age of 13 can participate alone, but please contact me before you book so I can confirm. I only accept paying participants in the kitchen.
Wear practical clothes and comfortable flat shoes. Avoid wearing black clothes as you will use flour during most of the class. If you wish to bring your own apron, you are welcome to do so. Alternatively, we provide disposable plastic aprons.
Fine detailed recipes are sent to your e-mail after the classes, so it is important that you provide your e-mail address. This also means that you can concentrate on the baking part and take great pictures of your delicious Danish pastries.
