Crepes and Soufflés Galore!

I took a hands-on Crepes and Soufflés class at Stir Cooking School last weekend. It was the perfect way to spend a Saturday morning.

The school is so cute and colorful! I had a great time. And seriously indulged!

As you know, I cook healthy versions of recipes in my home kitchen. Wow, was this a change. I left the class feeling energized with ideas yet lethargic with a very fully belly. I had to take an afternoon nap to sleep it off! Ha!

In the coming weeks, I hope to re-create the crepe into a healthier version of itself. While it will still be a special treat, at least it will be a bit healthier.

We made a full morning of it as you can see! On the menu...

Bacon and Boursin Cheese Soufflé

Roasted Chicken, Caramelized Onion and Brie Crepes

Shrimp and Artichoke Crepes with a White Wine Cream Sauce

Salted Caramel Apple Crepes with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

Triple Chocolate Soufflé

It was such fun! I can’t wait to take another class soon!

  1. I recently took a cooking class and rediscovered crepes. I especially like that they can be prepared ahead and filled with either savory or sweet fillings. A luscious and easy recipe, just splendid.

    1. Deb, You are so right about the savory or sweet. I used to think I only liked sweet crepes but after this class that belief is now in question.

  2. I cannot even begin to tell you how much I want to eat that Bacon and Boursin Souffle!!

    1. Ha ha! Love it. I sure enjoyed the souffle myself!

  3. I'm glad I stumbled upon your Twitter handle to then find your blog and this post. I've been wanting to try a class at Stir Cooking School and this one looking amazingly wonderful. Gotta check out their calendar - thanks for sharing!

    1. Stephanie, Welcome! I am glad you found me! I had a great time at Stir and would recommend thier classes to anybody because they were informative, hands on and most importantly, fun. Hope you enjoy the class you take! You'll have to let me know which one you go to.
