Date Night- Parisienne Gnocchi & Cream Puffs
September 8 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Join head chef instructor Kristin “Baker Bettie” Hoffman for this laid back class in our fun retro diner-themed space! Students will work in groups of two to make choux pastry from scratch. Choux pastry is a classic french pastry batter used to make all kinds of things! We will then transform it into a french style gnocchi for dinner as well as cream puffs for dessert!
Your ticket includes complimentary wine as well as appetizers to snack on while we make dinner and dessert. This class is also BYOB if you would like to bring anything else to enjoy.
Note: This event is for ages 21+
