In celebration of Bastille Day on July 14, Le Cordon Bleu Adelaide chef and patisserie lecturer Jenni Key shares her recipe for a stunning and uniquely French croquembouche, best shared with friends and family.
Jenni, who has been teaching Le Cordon Bleu Adelaide Patisserie students for seven years, says Bastille Day is an important day on the Le Cordon Bleu calendar, as the global institution’s first school opened in France in 1895.
“We love celebrating Bastille Day and what better way to join in the festivities than with a classic croquembouche,” she says.
“The French are known for their many wonderful desserts and pastries, but I think the croquembouche is by far the most impressive…and delicious.”
Jenni has 30 years of experience as a pastry chef and will prepare and assemble a croquembouche at the Adelaide Central Market on Friday, July 15, from 6pm. The cooking demonstration will be part of a wider Bastille Day celebration to be held that night in the Adelaide CBD's market precinct.More information here
