Christmas Cookies II – Christmas Mini Pavlovas & Rum Pralines

New Class!

The name “Pavlova” relates to the decadent dessert that some people consider very technical and often intimidating. In this class, we are going to prepare this dessert in its’ mini-Christmas version: one with snowy cream and golden edible glitter and the second version with green cream. And to top it off with a decoration, both are topped with a sweet cherry. This modern Christmas cookie is a true Christmas miracle. The second cookie of our class is going to be non-baked rum pralines that are typical for their unique flavor and easy preparation.

Note: Suitable for vegetarians

Join us from the comfort of  your home on Zoom and learn from Czech-born Chef Tom Slepicka in these hands-on interactive classes.

Slepicka graduated from culinary school in his hometown, Brno, located in the Czech Republic. While still in school, he established a successful full-service catering company which operated in the Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, and Austria. Slepicka moved to the U.S. with his wife in 2014. From 2015-16, he operated the Czech Deli at the NewBo City Market. The goal of his courses is to make tasty and high-quality meals accessible to everyone.

Our 3rd Christmas Series consists of 8 classes with 5 brand new classes as well as 3 of the most successful Christmas classes from last year. This is a great opportunity for those that didn’t participate last year to still have a chance to try the most popular classes from last year! Those who participated last year will benefit not just from the 5 brand-new classes, but also from the opportunity to refresh the more technically demanding classes, such as Vánočka.
