Join us online on November 20 to meet THE Pastry Queen of Versailles, Molly J. Wilk! An American pastry chef and instructor from Texas, Molly lives in Versailles, where she teaches French pastry classes from her 18th-century apartment. She also recently published her new book, French Pastry Made Easy.

During this online workshop/conversation, Molly will demonstrate in real time how to make puff pastry at home. There will be many opportunities for questions while waiting for the dough to chill! Ask anything you ever wanted to know about French pastry and how to make it at home (or how to switch careers, move to France and become a pastry chef). Molly will also show how to make apple spiced palmiers.

This event will be in English and will last about 1h/1h15.

Molly J. Wilk's book French Pastry Made Easy is available for purchase in the US here.
