Last Week I attended a pastry lesson at Basement Sate which is a cocktail and dessert bar in Soho and they recently launched their new menu by their new chef Kelly Nadjarian.
We made a traditional French dessert called St Honoré Cake which Kelly was really passionate about as she is French herself. The dessert consists of caramel covered choux pastry filled with white chocolate Chantilly Cream and piped mascarpone Chantilly cream on a puff pastry base. It was a fairly straight forward dessert but it had a lot of components to it. There was 5 of us and we split up into small groups. Kelly assisted us but still allowed us to be independent in the majority of the lesson.
The pastry lessons are available on Wednesday with Kelly herself and guests are able to pick which dessert they can make. This can range from Macaroons to Brownies and lessons are priced at £70 for groups up to 5 which is a really good price compared to other lesson in London. There are also cocktail master-classes available for £30. Be sure to go to a lesson or just for some great cocktails and delicious desserts.
Thanks Basement Sate, Kelly and Kapranos PR for a great afternoon.
