Woking Academy

Junior chefs (6-10): Pastry

Let's have some fun with pastry! Your junior chefs will join us in the kitchen to get creative with puff pastry and gorgeously flaky filo to bake delicious sweet and savoury tarts to take home. We'll help them shape, bake, fill and top tasty treats and perhaps inspire the next generation of patisserie masters!

What to expect

Gordon loves getting his children involved in the kitchen, meaning they’ve grown up really excited and inspired by food. Our Junior chef classes are a great opportunity for young cooks to get stuck in and have fun trying out new things.

With two hours in the kitchen with our chefs, your budding young bakers will be introduced to some different types of pastry and have the chance to get a real feel for baking with it. There's nothing more rewarding than seeing beautifully crisp, golden pastry fresh out of the oven and they'll be so proud to take home what they've made.

We'll show them how easy it is to create a savoury lunch or picnic snack with a simple puff pastry sheet tart, then for a sweet treat, gorgeous jam tarts. They'll head off with tarts, recipe packs and Academy bags, too.
