Today is August 31, 2011, and the summer season is officially coming to a close. Colleges and schools are back in session, and we are approaching the fall season.
I must admit that Autumn has always been my favorite season! I love the stunning changes that occur in deciduous trees with the crisp temperature shifts. Observing a gorgeous array of brilliant colors -- reds, oranges, golds, browns can definitely light one's spirit!
Apple picking has always been a fun activity with family and friends. The right orchard, with apple-cider donuts and a blue grass band, sunshine, have always contributed to a great experience. Coming back with amazing apples, to bake and cook is my forte! Needless to say, I am looking forward to this.
I will publish classes teaching how to make a proper pie crust, pate brisee (short crust) and pate sucree (sweet pie crust). The technique of creating a proper crust will ensure a better pastry!
I look forward to baking with you this fall!
