This class had us learning from a new teacher: Kristin. Each of the three teachers we have had have been fine. Christine, our regular teacher, is the best at pedagogy but Kristin was fun. She had to hurry us a lot and she is more casual than the other teachers. Our task today was pastries and pies/tarts.
The point of this class (and a major reason for my interest in it) was pastry making. I love the individual apple pies we made. They have figs and mascarpone cheese as well as apples and by making them in individual tins (and crimping the edges) they got a nice rustic look.
