Bake it Great – Cookies

Presented by Kelly Syms
About the class

In this cooking class of our ‘Bake It Great’ series, we are making cookies!

On Saturday 12th September, from 10:30am – 1:30pm, pastry chef Kelly Syms is hosting a cooking class at the Essential Ingredient Newcastle to teach you how to make 3 different types of cookies.

Chef Kelly will teach you her tips and tricks, and discuss the science behind making amazing cookies, each and every time. She will share her coveted Peanut Butter Shortbread Cookie recipe with the class; then she’ll make 2 variations of the shortbread cookie that will leave your mouth watering!

We will take inspiration from Christina Tosi and use snack foods like potato chips, chocolate pieces and pretzels to make ‘Kitchen Sink‘ Cookies. Finally, Chef Kelly will teach you how to make Rugelach – a Jewish crescent shaped cookie made with cream cheese.

Each person will get to take their baked goods home and will enjoy a complimentary cup of tea or coffee at the beginning of the class.
