Essentials of Pastry Part Deux, The Plate!

So here we are at the end of the week, once again incarcerated by Covid! Not such a bad thing, gives us time to brush up on those pastry skills. On Wednesday, we discussed Pate A Choux (cream puffs), and today we will move forward with using our new skill to produce a plate. If you missed the first installment, you can find it here;

These are a few examples of items that can be made with Pate A Choux. The first item is a more of a buffet center piece, and of course will require more effort and time. The second and third item are somewhat easier, and more common for a plated dessert. Here are a list of items and recipes you may want to gather to create a spectacular plate!

  • One recipe Pate Choux, from the previous post

  • One recipe pastry cream; as a filling, I'll add this below

  • One recipe basic caramel glaze; Below

  • One recipe chocolate ganache; 1:1, cream : chocolate, melted together

  • One recipe chantilly cream; fancy name for whipped cream

  • Garnishes; fresh berries, fruit coulis(sauce), toasted almonds, edible flowers, fresh mint, etc.

Keep in mind you don't need all these things, simple is best!
