This two day course is designed to cover a range of core baking techniques. Over two days students will make from scratch the following:
* Shortcrust pastry – and will use it to make a classic quiche lorraine (or vegetarian alternative if required)
* Sweet shortcrust pastry – and will take it away to practice with at home, along with our suggested recipes
* Rough puff pastry – and will use it to make sweet and savoury palmiers
* Real bread – wonderful, wholesome tin loaf, great for sandwiches and toast
* Muffins – savoury tomato and basil, perfect as a snack or for dipping in soups
* Cookies – our decadent dark chocolate chip recipe
* Loaf cake – lemon drizzle, a sure crowd-pleaser
In addition to the recipes covered, the tutor will be on hand to give advice on alternative recipes, to enable students to make variations and extend their baking repertoire even further at home.
Students will take home everything they have made and will also get to taste a variety of the recipes during the course.
All course bookings are subject to our Terms and Conditions, including our cancellation policy. Please ensure that you are able to attend the date you book, as transfers and refunds will not be offered, but you are most welcome to send someone in your place. This policy is to enable us to run our courses viably and therefore maintain our high quality standards – to explain, if a student cancels and transfers to a new date and we can’t resell their cancelled place then it means we lose out on making that place available e.g. that’s one student taking two spaces but only paying for one – it just doesn’t add up!
On the rare occasion that we must cancel / reschedule a course students will be offered an alternative date or a full refund without question.
