Minimum 2, maximum 6 persons
9AM – 3PM
Almonds have a very specific taste. A bit nutty, but also a sweet, slightly woody and earthy flavour. Originally from the Middle East, now every country in Europe has its recipes with almonds. In this workshop we will make a famous English tart, and it’s versatile almond filling. Plus 2 Italian almond cookies, one soft and chewy, and the other very crunchy.
Bakewell Tart: Famous in England, and Thailand will love it too; the combination of Almonds and Raspberry. A classic English dessert, best finished with some cream or custard.
Frangipane is a softer, more easily spreadable almond paste used as filling in tarts, galettes, and puff pastries. Marzipan is maybe more famous, used in cakes or as a candy. For the Bakewell Tart Frangipane is the ingredient.
Ricciarelli are dense, chewy Italian almond cookies which originate in Siena. They are a distant, Italian cousin to the French macaron — perfect with tea or coffee!
Biscotti, known also as cantucci, are Italian almond biscuits that originated in the Tuscan city of Prato. They are twice-baked, oblong-shaped, dry and crunchy.
