I did the french bread class and had a great day and brought home 2 baguettes, an olive loaf and a chocolate brioche - and were fantastic. None of my previous attempts at bread making at home had been edible. this course has given me the confidence to try again.

Three great classes with Maria and Emmanuel. I wanted more practice baking sourdough loaves and certainly achieved that over the course. We baked pizza, bagels, and several other delicious breads including 100% rye. The teaching was good and the facilities excellent. All in all very enjoyable and useful for a keen artisan baker.

I did the macaroon workshop a couple of weeks ago while i was on holiday in London. It was great! all the techniques to making a perfect macaroon were taught in detail and so well. its a completely hands on class so after a demonstration of each process you have to do it at your workstation independently. I couldnt believe... More

I did the French Patisserie course with Marianne, I've now perfected my Chou buns which I am most grateful for! Lovely group of students and love the Maria tote bag given out at the end. Might try a bread course soon!

Signed up for a bread making class that Bake with Maria did in New York City. It was great! I've always made a terrible mess when I tried to bake bread, but this class finally taught me where I'd been going wrong (way, way too much flour). We learned to make a simple, rustic loaf, bagels, Irish soda bread and... More

Bread-making has been an increasing interest for me so when this one-day tutorial was arranged as a birthday gift, I was keen for the day to arrive. It is a bit of a trek from Suffolk to London but every mile was worth it. From start to finish, it was a great day. There were seven of us all told... More
