WHY THIS CLASS

If you have ever had the pleasure of tasting a Gâteau Saint Honoré, consider yourself one of the lucky ones. This time-honored cake is largely unheard of outside of France, which is a shame considering its rich history.

The story of the Saint Honoré begins with St. Honoratus of Amiens, who gained favor with bakers just after his death. Reportedly, his funeral processions tempered the effects of the rain, bringing good harvest of wheat. Leave it to the French, whose reverence of God could only be matched by their love of bread and pastry, to name Honoratus the Patron Saint of Bakers. The Saint Honoré cake was invented some time after his death to honor the cultural icon.
