Free French Croissant Class- February 27th


February 27th

11:30-1pm Central Time, (12:30pm ET, 10:30amMT, 9:30am PT)

Okay- I’m getting the important stuff out of the way first to hopefully make it as easy and simple and clear as possible!

1) Make sure you have “liked” or “followed” my FB page (I’m on instagram too!) in order to view the livestream video of the class.  Only 100 people can join on zoom although zoom does allow more than 100 to register.  So do register but if you don’t make it into the class, simply pop on over to FB to view there.  The video DOES NOT stream in the event on FB but on my page.  So click HERE to like/follow my page to be able to view the video! You can also watch the class video on demand along with past classes whenever it works for your schedule.  Instagram @beckysmindfulkitchen

3) I am determined to continue to offer these free classes but some spammers have made it a bit tricky.  I think we have the problem solved but if you notice spam links on the event/video/posts please report them and let me know.  I am a stubborn mama so they won’t keep me from continuing to spread kindness through these classes and I hope you enjoy them and encourage others to join as well.

I’m a one woman show and do not receive any sponsorships for these classes- these classes have only grown because of people like you, sharing them with others both online and word of mouth.  I started them last March when I had to close my doors due to Covid and have now  done over 200 free classes.  My social media pages are much more than cooking and I hope you enjoy all that BMK has to offer from the classes to the honest and practical approaches to mindfulness and commitment to celebrating the shared human experience.

Okay guys- are you ready to be croissant bakers? Deep breath.  You got this.  Here’s the deal- Friday, I will spend the day preparing multiple batches of croissant dough to have it ready for all stages on Saturday.  This way, I will condense down what takes about 1.5 days into a 1.5 hour class.  There are multiple steps involved with croissants but I am hoping that with my help- you can feel confident to tackle them on your own- plus you can rewatch the video at any time. We will work through the first few steps together.  And then after you dough goes into the fridge for a minimum of 5ish hours- you sit back and relax while I show you the rest of the steps.  There are 5 total rests involved and two of them are about 5 hours minimum.

GLUTEN FREE QUESTION: Because I imagine some are wondering if you can use GF flour, I’ll answer that here.  Yes you can.  BUT, I personally was not thrilled with the outcome.  The dough is really fragile which makes it tricker to work with when laminating.  I would rather be honest with you than set you up for unrealistic expectations.

But seriously- once you do it and succeed- you will be hooked.  I love making croissants and I know you will too! I’ll show you how to do filled croissants along with the classic butter croissants.  This is the class to do with friends so you can bake them together in the future.  I planned this class so that you can do all of the steps during the day Saturday without feeling rushed and then have just one step left Sunday morning to do and then bake them up for fresh Sunday croissants- or time it out for Sunday brunch. The recipe also covers questions on how to freeze them.
