    Firstly I would like to tell you, “Don’t be put off by all the fancy cakes you will see on this website. On the contrary, be excited!” You won’t make all of them in one go. (Just one bite at a time!)

    All our courses are designed on the basis that students don’t know anything about cakes (hence wanting to learn) but are excited about learning – and we will be as patient as you. It is a relatively new style for Australia so don’t worry, in the training you won’t be the only one not knowing where to start.

    For all our training courses we only use the best ingredients available.

    The courses are designed to be delivered in an intensive one-day block. You do not need to book for a series, all start at “Level 1 – Beginner”. Then it is up to you to continue on later to an advanced level if you choose.

    The training you will receive is of a very high standard – equal to European standards (without the cost of flying there!) and you will have the opportunity to learn all about Pastry using the latest equipment and techniques direct from Europe. All the courses are designed for trade and public. Most courses do not require any prerequisite – the only requirement is that you are a food fanatic. Also, all the tools are provided, so you won’t need to buy any tools that you may not use again.

    To achieve these high standards whilst catering for individual learning, class sizes will range from 4 students (minimum number to run the course) up to a maximum of 12 students, depending of the course.

    Courses can be developed and tailored to suit your needs for both individuals and small groups. Instruction, training and/or demonstrations can be done at our premises or we can come to you if you have a sufficient number of students and adequate facilities.

    Going into a Chef Patrick’s course you know you will come out with valuable knowledge and culinary techniques, and in this case Chef Patrick even surpassed my high expectation. It was wonderful to learn from such a talented chef and great teacher who spared us no detail when it comes to technique and flavour. All questions were answered down to the tiniest details and many tips and tricks were shared. I want to thank Chef Patrick for a truly great course. I strongly recommend this it!

    I LOVED this class. Patrick was amazing, so patient and very approachable. I liked the fast pace and definitely felt I got my money's worth. I will be returning for other classes for sure.
