What to expect

No time to bake? Think again. With our speedy Bake nights you can master a specific skill or bake in no time. In each short evening class, we’ll get you hands-on and baking as quickly as possible, watching and following our chef teachers as they guide you through core techniques and recipes.

Once mastered, choux pastry will open so many delicious doors. We’ll help you perfect a smooth, glossy dough that can be piped into éclairs, buns and profiteroles that can be stuffed with any number of sweet and savoury fillings. 

During class you’ll mix, shape, bake and fill your pastries, ending up with a delicious box to take home with you – it’s up to you if you can bare to share them.
