Welcome to your school.

All our classes are designed for beginners. You will feel at ease in any of the classes with other students of the same baking level as yours.

For all our training courses we use ingredients that will be easy for you to get from your shopping place.

The courses are designed to be delivered in an intensive few hours block. You do not need to book for a series,
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 the 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 always be kept to a low number.

Courses can be developed and tailored to suit your needs for 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.

My husband and I joined the Pastry/tarts 3 hour class and it was amazing. We learnt so many tips on the class on how to make puff, short crust and sweet pastry. I have been cooking for well over 40 years and my jam tarts still looked as if a 6 year old had made them. Now with Patrick showing me the right way to make pastry and to cook pastry they look like they could be in a bakery shop window. I am so chuffed that we went on this class. Thanks Patrick
