A Lesson In Molecular Gastronomy – Desserts

We’ve added a few new classes to our fall repertoire!

Here is a brief description of one of our new favourites: A Lesson In Molecular Gastronomy – Desserts

 

In this two-hour, hands-on workshop discover the mysteries of the new “modernist cuisine” movement. Learn new and delicious ways to manipulate food products, presenting them in new forms on your plate. This includes Caviar Bubbles which topped our latest creation: the world’s most expensive cupcake.

Utilizing cooking techniques such as Spherification, Powderizing, Gelification and Air and foams we will create new and exciting dishes to tantalize the senses.

We will familiarize you with ingredients such as sodium alginate, agar agar and Tapioca Maltodextrin.

All participants will receive a set of recipes used in the workshop; and as always, everything is included  in the cost (ingredients, tools and supplies).

 

We hope you join us on September 25th from 7-9pm for the first class!

Stay sweet,

Team Le Dolci

Michelangelo’s Supper; An evening of food, wine and conversation.

Michelangelo’s Supper;

An evening of food, wine and conversation

shoppinglist

This fall the AGO presents Michelangelo: Quest for Genius and will feature dozens of the artist’s exquisite drawings. As the city of Toronto prepares for Michelangelo, we take perhaps his simplest sketches and turn them into inspiration for an unforgettable feast.

 

We are hosting a special evening to celebrate the art and food of Michelangelo. On September 12, chefs will prepare a delicious five-course meal inspired by the 16th century drawings of Michelangelo. They take the artist’s sketched shopping list filled with Renaissance ingredients and update them into a cohesive meal of Italian classics with wines to match. Michelangelo’s list is typical of his time…and includes requests such as tortelli, fennel soup, loaves of bread, and of course “un boca di vino” (a quart of wine). We use these ingredients and a little anachronistic license for an unforgettable meal.

 

Guests will dine on traditional panzanella salad, homemade stuffed pasta, traditional porchetta, semifreddo and a cheese course with some of Michelangelo’s favourites. Guests are encouraged to come and eat, drink and share in their love of good food and conversation.

 

Date: Fri Sept 12, 2104, 7pm

Location: Le Dolci’s Culinary Studio, 1006 Dundas Street West

Cost: 129pp.
