I’ve been having a ball in Rebecca Ottensmann’s cooking classes, Sundays at her bakery. We’ve covered low fat recipes, cooking in a wok, a million things to do with ramen, breakfast dishes and the latest one… pies.
The first pie I made as homework was a free-form, rustic apple. It was delicious, but I cracked my pastry without realizing it and the juices oozed out. It was still ultra yummy, but I’ll make another for a photo.
Tonight Patrick and I made another she showed us… a french custard tart. She makes hers with rhubarb and strawberries, but I had apples so ours was a rhubarb apple. My tart pans were also small, 9 inch ones, so the recipe made 2 (she baked hers in a glorious ceramic one that was huge).
The house smells incredible, which is soothing me because there are clouds covering the super moon, so far. I see stars out there too, so I’m hoping the clouds pass by so I can photo the moon. In the mean time, here are the twins out of the oven :)
If you live in the Florence area – sign up for some classes – it’s so fun!
