The following week was equally insane.. I think we are really being pushed to our limits, this is what summer school is all about, in some aspect I love it cos we only have to concentrate on one Unit but at the same time it’s driving me insane cos we are working 8 hours a day non-stop and then after 6 lessons, it’s assessment time already!!
Including pracs, we have theory units such as ‘clean and maintain kitchen’ and food safety procedures, etc.. and we have to pass all 3 theory Units to move on to next term! Talk about pressure!!
Anyway, here’s what we did for week 2:
Assessment was 10 frangipane tartlets, 6 profiteroles and 6 choc eclairs, also passed the theory and prac!!
This was meant to be the first class (before the gateaux) but then it was full in August, so they put me in for the October one. Here are the pics from my very very hard work in trying to learn and produce yummy french pastries this weekend. Note that all pastries seen below have been made from scratch, hopefully.. will never have to buy frozen ones again!
