choux pastry, sweet pastry, puff pastry, crème patisserie, chocolate tempering and fondant, éclairs, pistachio and fresh berry tarts, mille feuille.


On this full day  course you will learn how to prepare and cook classic French patisserie. Skills you will learn: choux pastry, sweet pastry, puff pastry, crème patisserie, chocolate tempering and Royal icing. We will make (and take home) éclairs,  fresh berry tarts, mille feuille.

By the end of the day / course you will have learnt how to prepare and cook a variety of patisserie that look beautiful and taste amazing. We will also have spent time on presentation – how to transfer all that care and skill into a dish to be proud of.

Have fun!

Perhaps most importantly, as well as learning new skills, you will have had some fun learning in a relaxed and supportive environment. During the course the emphasis is on using personal taste, judgement and technique rather than slavishly following a recipe. This approach means that one recipe may become two or three recipes. However, a booklet containing the course recipes will be given to you at the end of the day / course.

Everyone has their own set of ingredients sharing only a 4 burner induction hob and standard size fan assisted oven with one other learner. We all work together at the same pace with each stage demonstrated before you do it yourself.

We will stop and eat as we go along so that you taste dishes at their best and we can discuss. There may be food to take home with you, but not always.
