Celtic Baking Classes

Learn the ins and outs of traditional Irish baking with the Red Stag Pub’s in-house bakers! The Red Stag Pub presents Celtic Paige Pastry Chef Red Stag PubBaking Classes in the Great Room of the pub, focused on four different Irish or Scottish baked treats. These fun, demonstration based classes led by our culinary professional, will give you all the basics for making your own scones, shortbread, brown bread, and millionaire bars!  

Space is extremely limited for these classes, so make sure to sign up early.  Feel free to take one or all of the classes — it’s your choice!  Join us, and you’ll learn the history of each item, how to make it, and of course, sample and take home your luscious goodies.  The cost for each class is $20.00. 

Here’s what you’ll be making… 


Scones
 
Scones are buttery and flaky with the texture of a biscuit, and typically topped with raw sugar or icing. The first known print reference to scones was in 1513 and they have been popular in England, Ireland, and Scotland ever since.  

Shortbread 
Shortbread originated in Scotland and due to its popularity made it throughout the United Kingdom. This recipe comes from Red Stag Pub owner, Neville Gardner’s family in Northern Ireland. Because his family was quite poor, they couldn’t afford to purchase many ingredients, which kept their recipes simple. What makes this cookie unique is the buttery and crumbly consistency. 

Brown Bread 
Brown bread is a traditional staple of Irish cuisine. The inspiration for the recipe is derived from our favorite place, Lifeforce Mill in Cavan, Ireland. Brown bread is whole meal soda bread made with organic flours sourced in the USA. 

Millionaire Bars 
Millionaire Bars are a shortbread biscuit base with creamy caramel, covered in dark and white chocolate.  They gained the name Millionaire Bars because of their rich taste and texture.  Millionaire Bars are a very popular item in Scotland. ..and a pub favorite!
