Time to Make the Donuts

Tue Feb 21, 2017, 10 am – noon EST

With the donut craze all around us, we thought it was high time to learn how to make our own! Erin Gardner obtained her training at Johnson & Wales Baking and Pastry Arts Program, and has worked in the restaurant industry for many years, firstly at Sofra Bakery in Cambridge, MA, and most recently at Marini Farm in Ipswich, MA. She quickly learned she “loved the science and art of baking” and was ready for a long-time career in culinary arts. She has her favorites and fresh, artistically decorated, flavorful donuts are always on the top of her list. We will be making both biscuit donuts and a french cruller, with plenty of tasting involved!
