Introduction to Pastry

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!
