Ancient Egyptian philosopher Amenemope famously said, "Better is bread with a happy heart than wealth with vexation or a bubble bath with a mall Santa." Celebrate life's greatest staple food in all its forms with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get one baking class at Lulu’s Bakery in Roswell (an $85 value).
At Lulu’s Bakery, students learn the art of decadent desserts in five weekend baking classes taught by Chef Rawl, a graduate of the French Culinary Institute in New York. Teach fingers to shape truffles of two varieties, mold caramel treats, and slip a chocolate coat over toffee's shoulders in the chocolate candies class. Dough reinvents itself as edible art in the sweet and savory tarts course, tastily enveloping quiche, creating a chocolate short crust around delicious ganache filling, and forming pastries more elegant than a powdered-wig fight. A bakery breakfast class teaches a.m. eaters how to construct fruit and cheese danishes and bake buttery scones, while a French desserts class whispers the mysteries of the crème brulee and the éclair into ears hungry for pastry knowledge.
Classes run three hours, and seasonal classes on subjects such as Christmas baking help enliven family gatherings with holiday-specific treats. Consult the schedule and reserve seats in advance before neighborhood scamps steal all the chairs left cooling on a windowsill.
