PASSED: Perfecting Pastry & Lemon Meringue Pie!
What you'll learn
Pastry can be the baking nemesis for so many people and because it may have given rise to problems in the past, the tendency is then to go out and buy factory processed ready made. Some bought pastry dough can contain as many as 10 ingredients which will probably include palm oil as well as a number of preservatives. Using just 4 simple ingredients, the pastry dough can be mixed in just two minutes and that includes the time it takes to weigh out the ingredients. Even those without a food processor can make the dough along with me by hand – it will take longer but it will be better than anything bought from the supermarket! In this class, we will make A traditional Lemon Meringue Pie – I am not talking fancy meringues, blow torches and piping nozzles ! I am going to make a traditional pie which made properly has the perfect balance of everything you need from a dessert. A thin light crust, tart smooth lemon custard and topped with a pillow of meringue which has a thin crispy shell. The ingredients are simple – flour, butter, sugar, cornflour (cornstarch), eggs and lemons This is perfect and one of my Top Ten bakes!
This class is perfect for
The class is suitable for anyone interested in perfecting their pastry, or even who has never made pastry before though a basic knowledge about baking terminology, ingredients and equipment is desired.
