Introduction to Pastry Making

From: £120.00

Join experienced pastry chef Liz for a day all about pastry. During the course you will make three varieties – sweet, savoury shortcrust and flaky – which will later be transformed into individual apple pies, Cornish pasties and pork-filled sausage rolls.

Each student will make their own batches of pastry by hand and then will use them to produce tasty bakes using a selection of fillings prepared fresh for you in advance by our team.

Making great pastry is a key baking skill and you’ll master how to prepare and handle pastry to get consistent and delicious results every time.

Liz will be on hand to guide you through all the processes as well as to offer lots of tips and share her extensive knowledge.

Each student will take away everything they have made on the day and we provide packaging. There will be chances to taste the produce too!

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.
