There are some baking classes that are all about the science and precision of baking. These classes are about learning and attaining that perfect bake. And then there are classes that are all about having fun while making delicious treats. If you lean toward the latter, Chef Shai’s doughnut fun class at Le Dolci is the one for you!
In this two hour class, Chef Shai teaches participants to make traditional doughnuts, as well as the fundamentals of creating yeast doughs and batter with a variety of toppings and glazes.
Seeing Chef Shai in action during this class, one can never guess she is more of a savory person. She has great energy and loves to train people, a trait that is clearly visible as she conducts class.
She gives clear and detailed instruction on how to treat the dough, how to roll it, how to spread flour on your work surface as well as how to create uniquely shaped and uniform doughnuts. Be it heart shaped, flower shaped, traditional doughnuts or doughnut holes, Chef Shai has them all covered. Also, during the class you will learn that doughnut holes now have a new name – say hello to “Le Dolci bites”!
The doughnuts are then proofed and fried, after which they can either be dusted with cinnamon sugar or dipped in a beer glaze specially prepared by Chef Shai.
If the science of baking interests you, Chef Shea also provides an explanation and demonstration on making the dough from scratch. She also provides details about the ingredients, the correct mixing techniques, the best brands of ingredients to purchase and where to purchase them from.
At the end of the class, participants get to take home a box of their sweet and delicious creations. The doughnut class is a great birthday gift, a lovely bachelorette idea or a maybe just treat to yourself!
We invite you to join us and have some much deserved fun! The doughnut class will be held next on April 23 (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.), May 13 (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.) and May 28 (4:30 p.m. to 6: 30 p.m.). You can book the class here. We look forward to seeing you soon!
