Online masterclass: Stir-up Sunday

It's time to dig out your pudding bowl, grab the spices and get ready to stir-up your Christmas pudding with us on online! We'll make sure you're all set for traditional festive treats with your own pudding and mincemeat ready for December.


What to expect

Our Christmas cooking classes are not only the perfect opportunity to have some festive fun in the kitchen with friends and loved ones, but will also set you up with essential recipes and new ideas to make this Christmas the most delicious one yet.

We are excited to join up with you wherever you are in the world this November to celebrate Stir-up Sunday together. Whether you go all-out for the traditions or not, it's the ideal time to get ahead by 'stirring up' your Christmas pudding and mincemeat, ready for December.

You'll join us through Zoom from your own kitchen and cook along with our chefs as they take you step-by-step through these classic recipes. If you've never made your own before, this is the perfect time to give it a go!

We’ll email you all the details in advance so you can shop and prepare in plenty of time, then in the class you can just concentrate on cooking along with the chef and your fellow classmates. 

You'll end with your pudding prepped and ready to cook on the big day itself, and a batch of boozy homemade mincemeat ready to bake into mince pies...

...so why not join us on our Online masterclass: Mince pies class, where we'll be making the pastry and baking these too!
