JANUARY 26, 2024: Tarte Flambée

Date: Friday, January 26, 2024

Time: 5:30pm - 8:30pm

Cost: $130 per ticket 


Come make Franco-German pizza with Katya Lyukum! Expand your pizza repertoire with this traditionally wood-fired flatbread formulated as a baker's treat!

Known as Tarte Flambée in France and as Flammkuchen in Germany, this pizza dish has humble origins as a sacrificial flatbread used by Alsatian farmers and bread-bakers to test the temperature of their wood-fired bread ovens. While still best enjoyed hot out of a pizza oven, today's Flammkuchen can be ordered at restaurants or made at home in your oven, and often features dressed-up ingredients like crème fraîche, lardons, and delicate alliums like shallots or leeks. 

During class, you will learn to make this unique pizza dough from scratch, incorporating both sifted and whole wheat varietals for maximum flavor and texture. Katya will walk you through the ideal preparation methods for its characteristic creme fraîche-based white sauce, lightly caramelized leeks, and cured pork or mushroom addition, until we're all ready to fire off our pizzas and enjoy.

    NOTE: Bring a friend to partner with in class, or partner up with a new friend in class for this delicious experience! We will be asking all participants to partner up when topping & firing their doughs. 

    This class is BYOB for participants 21+, so bring a special ferment if you so please for ultimate Friday fun! Katya recommends an elegant Riesling. 

    Beginners are welcome, and encouraged to attend.
