The Basics of Baking Series: A Night in France
Join Food & Beverage Social Club and Wentworth & Fenn for an educational French pastry-making experience, paired with French Wines.
Guests will be greeted with a glass of French wine and guided through a Pate Choux (cream puff) demonstration with Chef Samantha Allen in the Wentworth & Fenn kitchen. After the demo, guests will enjoy cream puffs and macarons while learning tips for pastry making at home.
Our member Sommelier, Anne Kjellgren will lead the group in a French Wine tasting to explore wine flavors, aromas, appearance and pairing tips. Anne is a highly respected wine professional as a WSET level 3, a Certified Specialist of Wine and she is currently working towards her French Wine Scholar certification.
Wentworth & Fenn is located at Camp North End. The pastry menu consists of small, seasonal pastries, bread and coffee. The pastry chefs rotate the menu monthly; this way they can utilize the freshest and local ingredients. The bakery is tiny but mighty; six employees and Samantha runs operations.
Samantha Allen is the owner/executive pastry chef. Formerly the executive pastry chef at The Fig Tree Restaurant, Samantha was nominated for Best Pastry Chef in the South East Region – James Beard in 2017 and Best Pastry Chef in Charlotte via Charlotte Magazine. Samantha decided to pursue her dream of opening her own concept. Thus, Wentworth & Fenn was born.
