NEXT STAGE COOKS – Yule Log Baking Class
Sunday, December 17, 2017

A “Yule log” (Buche de Noel) is a traditional dessert served near Christmas,
especially in Belgium, France, Switzerland, and Quebec, made of sponge
cake to resemble a miniature actual Yule log.

Ann-Michele Klug made her first Buche de Noel for French class as an twelve
year old and from that moment knew she was on to something. After
graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, Ann-Michele was a pastry
chef in three and four star restaurants, worked on several cookbooks, and
decorated wedding cakes for Sylvia Weinstock. She and her husband left
NYC for New Hampshire (with baby in tow) to make chocolate and breathe
fresher air. She has trained professionals, given adult cooking classes, and
taught enthusiastic children.

Ann-Michele will show you first hand how these beautiful and delicious
holiday treats are made. This is partly a demonstration class, with some
hands-on work as well.
