Description

Have you ever eaten a doughnut fresh out of the fryer?  

This is the best and only way to eat a doughnut according to Grain Organic Bakery's head pastry chef Buster Brown. Join us for this class and you will never eat a mediocre doughnut again! 

3 delicious flavoured doughnuts. Bring your child with you, they will pay half price!

Cooking is all about team-work and sharing, and our working stations are designed for 2 people, you can invite a friend along or come in by yourself and we will team you up with one of our other guests. A great way to make new friends!

The VIVE Experience is best appreciated with a minimum of 6 guests in the kitchen. If this number hasn't been reached 7 days prior to the class, VIVE Cooking School reserves the right to cancel it.

About Buster: The classics with my own twist

Buster spent his teenage years living on the French Riviera and was always in and out of the kitchens run by his stepfather. He took a shine to patisserie because it appealed to his creative nature.

After completing his apprenticeship he worked in the kitchens of Harrods and The Ivy in London. His travels saw him land in Sydney in 2001 where he worked as Head Pastry Chef in various restaurants and bakeries including: Fratelli Paradiso, Aqua Dining, Patisserie Lumière, Bourke Street Bakery, BlackStar Pastry and Luxe Bakery. 

Buster joined Grain Organic Bakery 6 months ago and has been delighting us with delicate and delicious pastries and cakes, quintessentially French with a little extra "je ne sais quoi".
