Register Now: Kremena’s Sweet and Savory Pastry Class

Register Now: Kremena’s Sweet and Savory Pastry Class

You may know Kremena Stefanova as one of the friendly faces behind the counter at Del Ray’s Caboose Cafe or perhaps you’ve met her at the Four Mile Run Farmers Market where she sells her homemade Bulgarian baked goods. We’re excited to announce that Kremena will teach a pastry class for DIY Del Ray readers on Saturday, February 4 at 3 p.m. where you can learn some of her tried-and-true techniques.


Kremena grew up in Bulgaria and learned to bake from her mother and grandmother. She moved to the U.S. in her early 20s, met her husband and they are now raising their family in Alexandria. When she started cooking for her kids, she says she wanted to make good, nutritious food, and soon decided to try making a go of having her own small business selling scones, croissants, crisps, bread sticks, granola, and strudels.



At this one-hour class, Kremena will demonstrate how to make a butter dough and its variations that can be used for both sweet and savory pastries including quiche, pies and tarts. She will also demonstrate a French style galette baked upside down in a cast iron skillet.

The cost for the class is $25 and includes copies of Kremena’s recipes and techniques and of course, samples of everything baked during the event.

Space is limited — it will be taught at a house in Del Ray (location provided during registration) — so reserve your spot now. If the event sells out, make sure to get on the waiting list. If you can’t make this date/time and are interested in future classes on this topic, please let us know by emailing
