The 4 hours flew by and I came away with a renewed love of baking, of Scandi treats and would happily recommend... More

So my children bought me a voucher for a Baking class, and I decided to do one that would stretch my skills, therefore chose the French Pastry class as I have never been able to make it! On reaching the lab where the class was held, I was introduced to the other lovely ladies attending that day. Maria was wonderful,... More

I went on the Cake Baking Masterclass course and we made delicious carrot cake, lemon drizzle and chocolate cake. I had a wonderful day - Maria was a brilliant teacher and a lovely person. We had an amazing lunch thrown in which we weren't expecting at all. I felt like I learnt lots of handy tips which I will remember... More

Wow. I attended the introduction to cake making classes in January 2017. I considered it about time that I made friends with my kitchen after a lifetime of hating it; a legacy inherited courtesy of my 'home economics' teacher in the early '80s. (How much can you learn from opening a packet of Angel Delight? Seriously!) The class was fun,... More

Hi, So my wife and I got classes here as a wedding anniversary gift from my sister. It was the Italian Bread Making Class taught by Emmanuel. This was a great experience as the class was small (8 people) with great personal attention and interaction with everyone. My wife and I love to cook, so we're always reading new recipes... More

Excellent baking lab! I chose the family baking class to experience a new activity with my 6 yo son. It was a great activity to do together and we both liked it. We've baked our own bread at home every week since ever, which is always delicious thanks to the useful tips we've been given. The class includes food and... More

My husband and I spent an evening baking healthy bread with Maria a few weeks ago. We had a great time. We baked some great bread and most of it was so straightforward and delicious we have been using the recipes at least once a week ever since. I thoroughly recommend the course. It's nicely paced, you learn a lot,... More
