I had the most amazing time at Maria's class. Great venue, 6 people in the class and overcame my fear of yeast breads. Hands on experience and time to ask lots of questions. Great hand-outs and Maria's lovely manner made it such fun and I leaned so much. We made seeded crackers (which are dead easy but delicious), overnight rye... More

An excellent day with Emmanuel last Saturday, learning so much about Italian breads. This has given me the confidence to have a go at these breads at home. This was my second class at the Baking Lab and combined a wealth of knowledge with interesting little tips to make baking life easier. If I am going to be critical at... More

Absolutely brilliant!! I am a beginner in bread making and I particularly love Sourdough bread but I did not know where to start from. This class is taught by Artisan Baker Emmanuel Hadjiandreou, his knowledge about bread is immense and he has answers to any questions. We learned to make 4 types of bread (rye bread, fig and fennel rye... More

My wife bought me a Bread Making Class for my Birthday, even though I had made bread before at home, it was 50/50 if it turned out. I found that the class gave me the confidence to consistently make a decent loaf and not to panic when I thought the dough had gone wrong!! Maria is a perfect teacher, that... More

Baking with Maria at the Baking Lab is a truly wonderful experience. The classes tend to be a maximum of 8 people and are run by a teacher and 2 assistants. It is a very friendly and relaxed environment as they walk you through the recipes. We were taught how to make 3 different types of cake. You get to... More

The beginner's bread making class is a must for anyone who, like me, has been consistently frustrated by bread which never quite lived up to the billing, tasted good, but could hold you down in a hurricane. Maria and her assistants, Benny & Alex were great, welcoming us on arrival with home made goodies before taking us through step by... More

I recently took a French pastry class at Bake With Maria and it was superb. The class was hosted by Kate who has plenty of experiences having trains in San Fransisco and now runs her own business, she was funny, engaging and made the multitude of steps seems effortless and the results were beautiful...and delicious. The course was just over... More

Introduction to Bread Marking class -- very highly recommended. We covered a lot in the three hours (including soda bread and ciabatta) but there are frequent tea breaks, and lots of great conversation, much of it bread-related. Maria is a superb, encouraging teacher, and this is a great way to spend an evening. And you get to take home a... More
