Duration: 2 hrs
Master the art of choux pastry and learn to pipe the perfect mini éclairs. Filled with whipped cream and topped with glossy fondant icing, these delicate desserts are sure to impress. Channel 4’s Kirstie Allsopp is certainly a fan after Loretta taught her how to create her favourite kumquat éclairs on Handmade Britain.
“They say éclairs are the new cupcakes and macarons. That I am not certain of but I know I love them. I love the crust of the pastry to the smooth filling and interesting flavours. I will use my new favourite Valrhorna chocolate to create a Chocolate mousse. It is just to die for!” Chef Loretta
Having helped Kirstie Allsop to produce kumquat éclairs on Channel 4, Loretta’s latest class will teach you how to make this classic French pastry. In 3 hours, you’ll learn how to make your own choux pastry, make a filling and decorate your éclairs to give them the ‘wow!’ factor for any tea-time engagement. You will take home a tray’s worth of your patisserie creations.
