Hey y'all what's up? So trying something a bit new! I want to share my love of baking and conversations with you all and now I can do that when you book an in person class in my bakery! Whooo Hoo!!! Cookies & Conversations is a Bakery that started out with the desire to bring people together in conversations over delicious cookies. Leah, a French Pastry School trained Pastry Chef started baking with her grandfather and wanted to recreate that experience with others. She did that by creating a take home cookie kit containing a cookie mix, snacks, tea, and conversation cards. This small concept has now evolved into a full on bakery. Located in an eclectic warehouse building in Chicagos Pilsen Neighborhood playful cookie creations and quite a few classics are in rotation at the bakery, in the mail, and at pop ups all over the city. It has been a joy and an honor to bring my fun creations to people to consume, to share a moment of presence, and opportunity for meaningful conversation. This 4 hour class is designed to help people feel at ease with baking and also experience an opportunity for a little bit of play with dessert as well. In this class we will be making 1 of 3 crowd favorites: Chocolate Chip Cookies Brown Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Lemon Ricotta Cookies And also 1 of 3 unique playful gourmet cookie recipes: Nutella Swirl Bailey’s Irish Cream Cookie Red Velvet Macadamia Nut Cookie Both the Lemon Ricotta and Red Velvet have a vegan option as well. We will be mixing the pre-scaled ingredients in our stand mixers, scooping cookies and baking them in a convection oven. We will be discussing the various techniques when it comes to updating recipes or playing with recipes, ingredients and how they impact baking, how quality impacts the end product, and the various topics found on the conversation cards given to each of the participants. Refreshments & snacks will be served and also a tasting of a varied selection of cookies or other pasties such as mini cupcakes, pie slices, or mini cakes will be served to sample and talk. This is a full commercial kitchen so hairnets, and aprons will be required and provided for class participants. Masks are optional however accommodations will be made for participants of this class so they will feel most at ease.
