"I found this class very good. I was amazed at how well the pastry turned out, even though some of the methods went completely against how I had been taught to make pastry in the past! Evan explains every stage in great detail and even makes sure to emphasize important points. All the stages are shown very clearly, so you have no doubt as to what your pastry should look like at that stage. Evan was extremely helpful and quick to answer. If you want to perfect your pastry making and demystify some of the steps, then this is the class to do. "
