Sugar, Sugar

Oh sugar, pour a little sugar on it honey. Pour a little sugar on it baby. I’m gonna make your life so sweet, yeah yeah yeah. Pour a little sugar, on it oh yeah…

At the beginning of the year, I made a list of my personal goals for 2018. One of the goals included taking cooking classes. We had the opportunity this summer to take a class in “Making Croissants and Chocolate Rolls” at the Cordon Bleu in Paris, but we really couldn’t takeaway our treats at the end of the class because we were staying in a hotel and moving on via train to Brussels.

So, the next opportunity was this weekend at Central Market in Dallas. My sister and I took a class on making pumpkin rolls.  With Thanksgiving coming, it was perfect timing.

There were only six people in the class, and we had three chefs to help us. It was a great experience, and I was able to bring the finished pumpkin roll home to Scott.

We learned how to separate eggs, make meringue, caramel, and the pumpkin roll itself. My work in progress:

Next week, we’re moving on to pies and tarts. I highly recommend the cooking classes at Central Market.

Great Fun! Great Food!

Bon Appétit!
