The Art of Lamination Dough: Morning Buns
February 22, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ever wonder how baker’s make those delicious, flaky treats—like puff pastries or croissants—that we all know and love? The key is laminating dough – the process of creating layers of dough and butter. Join Farm Table’s pastry chef Sue Nielsen for this hands-on class and learn how to make your own laminated dough! The class will specifically make Morning Buns, a decadent, buttery morning treat that requires some patience, but is always worth the effort.
Sue Nielsen is Farm Table’s very own Pastry Chef and Preservation Manager! She has honed her culinary skills for over twenty years.

Sue won the “The Beez Kneez” 5th Annual Dandelion Pastry Challenge in March of 2018, in collaboration with Café Wren.

She also enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
