Spending the day with my great friend, Fahy and Chef Chris Nicosia from the Louisiana Culinary Institute in Baton Rouge. Chef Chris taught us how to make Alfajor cookies sandwiched with Dulce De Leche filling and puff pastry from scratch. She showed us techniques on how to make a butter block for the puff pastry, how to chill the dough and make turns to create a flaky pastry. It was a very interesting day at the Red Stick Spice Co. kitchen.
