English-only and French-only sessions are offered at different times. Please register for the workshop in the language of your choice.

Join us for a fun and engaging virtual baking class, from the comfort of your own home! Participants will receive a hands-on baking experience, led by a museum employee. This educational activity will equip participants with new culinary skills and — most importantly — a sense of satisfaction for having baked their very own delicious treat.

Each class features a different recipe, which will be prepared from start to finish during the virtual session. The baking classes will be small, making the experience more personal. Participants require access to an oven and basic baking equipment. The class materials (recipe, grocery list, equipment list, and preparation instructions) will be emailed to participants shortly after registration. This will give participants enough time to gather the required materials for the class. Participants will receive a Zoom link to access the class.

Children ages 13 and under are welcome to participate, but must have an adult’s help/supervision during the Virtual Baking Classes.

Class Description

Cherry Clafoutis is a traditional French dessert. Similar to a tart, it features a sweetened batter topped with fresh cherries. It is an ideal summer treat, when the cherries are in season. Learn how to make this delicious and rustic dessert. While it bakes, you’ll learn all about eggs — a key ingredient in Clafoutis — as well as fun facts about some of the different chicken breeds that produce them. The recipe, grocery list, and equipment list will be provided to participants following registration.
