Baking ClassParis BIA, Spring 2012
Every week IES posts a “question of the week” and if you answer it correctly you can win some great prizes. This past week I took a shot at it and won a baking class! I was overjoyed to get the opportunity to bake in a French bakery, and it turned out to be a great experience.
We each made our own cake called a Chalala under the instruction of one of the bakers named Alice. She was very patient and helpful. It was interesting to make each component in large quantities, and it gave me a feel for what working in a bakery is really like. We probably used almost 10 sticks of butter!
