This week the kitchen was the focus of a number of station activities and one of these was master chef cooking lessons conducted by one of our chefs, Sebastian. This week's master class was how to make croissants. A croissant is a buttery, flaky, Vienna-style pastry named for its well-known crescent shape. Once you understand the basics of creating multi-layered dough, which are the essentials of a croissants, you're well on your way to wowing your friends.
Sharon, one of the students, was very keen to impress our French chef both with her language and cooking skills and said “faire des croissants m’ aidera à trouver un mari”. To learn this delicate art, six expeditioners signed up for the first class which consisted of four lessons of one hour each. Not only did the master class students learn how to cook, they also realise that working in the kitchen can be hard work as some of the lessons were at 0700 in the morning.
