Teaching Kids and Adults to Bake at the Alliance Francaise in Providence

Over the past several months Susie has developed quite a relationship with the people at the Providence Chapter of Alliance Francaise, the worldwide network of Francophiles. She has moved from taking classes to giving them; well, at least baking classes.

This past weekend she taught a kid's baking class on Saturday, and together they produced a vast number of chocolate diamants and lemony madeleines:

On Sunday she teamed up with local French chef Alain Hugard and his collegae Lucien Arsac to do the pastry portion of AF's Gourmet Club. The club meets several times a year to learn French cooking techniques and benefit from their efforts by eating the lessons. The savory portion consisted of salmon presented three different ways, while the pastry course focused on Sabayon and the infinite variety of ways it can be used in desserts. (Susie paired hers up with an incredible pear almond tart.)
