Being a teenager ain't easy. There's the acne, the awkwardness, the cliques, the gossip, the parents.
La Victoria Bakery, the delicious Mission landmark of over 60 years, gets it and wants to help out. The Palm Leaf Teenanger Angst Class is a gift to teens, a respite, where they can escape the chaos of their lives and learn to bake one of the most scrumptious, sugary delights in Latin cooking. This deal gets your kid – ages 12 and up – one 75-minute cooking class, where they'll learn just how simple (and delectable) cookie cooking is. Each student will also take home a small piece of puff pasty – the main ingredient in the palm leaf cookie – to demonstrate the newly learned craft at home.
Cookies for life.
La Victoria Bakery has been making pan dulce the original way for over 60 years. Just the way grandfather and great-grandfather Maldonado had been doing before little Jr. opened La Victoria. Real milk, whole eggs. and fresh starter. We don’t do frozen, we don’t do powdered milk, and every batch has a unique recipe. We never disguise our pastries in tons of sugar like many others do. (Okay, we still do the pink cookie, but how can you have a Mexican bakery without a Polvoron Rosa?) My personal favorites are the: Niño Emvuelto, Rebanadas de Pasas, Cubilete de Queso, La Cocada, and of course, La Concha, the Queen of the Pan Dulce.
