Mida sa teed

In this experience you will learn the science behind the “perfect” chocolate chip cookie, learn how to bake that cookie, and of course, get to eat it.

I have been perfecting my chocolate chip cookie recipe for more than 10 years. In so doing, I became fascinated with the science behind the cookie. How do changes and variations in techniques and ingredients affect the cookie?

If an ooey-gooey cookie is your thing, what do we do to get that ooey-gooey?

Do you like a chestnut colored or beige cookie? Do we bake the cookie longer or increase the oven heat to cause caramelization to give a cookie a nice brown top? At what temperature exactly does caramelization occur?

Are you a “crispy on the edge soft in the center” person? Do you like a “cakey” cookie? chewy? Thick, but not-so-crispy? The classic “Tollhouse” store bought cookie?

These changes are caused by the ingredients and process. In this experience you will learn and see the impact of each of these changes. You will have the opportunity to taste a few of the variations and pick your favorite.

I am a lawyer by day but avid baker by night/weekend. I have a passion project cake business, not for the income, but because I love nothing more than baking a celebration cake or other pastry for someone. I have taken culinary and pastry classes all over the world and from many of our well-known local chefs and pastry chefs. I love to share my knowledge with others.

Our family of 4 did this activity for Mother's day and we had a wonderful time learning from Lilah. We have an 18-year-old daughter, 17-year-old son and we all enjoy chocolate chip cookies. I was delighted by how much I learned from Lilah in her beautiful kitchen. She was great at answering our many questions as well as sharing her ingredients, special tips, and recipe. I highly recommend this class for a delicious and fun family-bonding time. I can hardly wait for sharing my new chocolate chip cookie baking skills with my family, friends, and community.

If you’re contemplating booking this class, just do it. Lilah’s cookie class was awesome! I walked into this class knowing very little about the science behind baking and somehow feel like I cheated myself by learning years of baking chemistry in under 3 hours! Lilah has spent the past 10 years taking lots of professional baking courses to perfect her chocolate chip recipe. From this class, I learned a lot about how each ingredient affects a cookie and am now confident to bake a delicious cookie in my own home! Lilah is very knowledgeable and passionate about baking! A lot of other classes will probably just teach you how to make one version of something but not this one. At the beginning of the class, Lilah had prepared two different versions of chocolate chip cookies so that we can taste and compare. After learning more about each ingredient, we got to make our own batch of cookies and take some home. Overall wonderful experience!

This was great! You really learn information that’ll last you a lifetime. She’s truly studied and perfected the chocolate chip cookie. But what’s amazing is, she gives you all the information you need on how to make your own version of the “perfect” cookie. Everyone’s perfect cookie is different. Thin and crispy, big and chewy, crispy on the outside soft in the middle, super chocolatey, etc. So she gives you all the information and how tweaking certain ingredients will give you the desired result. I really feel like I can take this knowledge with me and use it for the rest of my life!
