I attended the Doughnuts and more! class in July 2015. Everything about the Delightful Tea school is excellent. The website and booking system is intuitive and easy to use. The location and parking are easy to find and convenient. The tutor was professional, knowledgable, but friendly, patient and approachable with it. The course content was exactly as described, fun and appropriate. The pace of the course was just right too. Even the other students were lovely. Also excellent value for money.
We made 6 amazing filled doughnuts. Proper doughnuts. Like the ones your parents used to buy when you were a kid, not the mass produced ones available today. We also made churros, which were little bites of heaven. I cannot recommend the school and this course high enough. I will certainly be returning to do one of the bread making courses. Well done to everyone involved :) From Trust Pilot https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/delightfultea.co.uk/55d1a0090000ff0002ffd8f9
Perfect Your Patisserie – Two Day Course
This intensive two day course is all about beautiful, professional-looking patisserie you can recreate at home. Over two days students will individually make from scratch the following:
* Caramel Chocolate Domes with a chocolate mirror glazed finish
* Crumble-topped Choux Spheres with raspberry mousse filling
* Glazed Fresh Fruit Tarts filled with pastry cream
A range of techniques will be covered including:
* Choux pastry, sweet pastry & biscuit
* Sheet sponge
* Pastry cream
* Mirror glaze
* How to plan your baking, including tips on storage, assembly and finishing to a patisserie-ready standard
Over the two days, students will have time to work individually on every step of the process after watching demonstrations from the tutor, Sarah. It is entirely hands on and therefore groups are strictly limited to eight students to ensure each student has plenty of opportunity for one to one attention from Sarah. The emphasis is on ensuring that our students leave with confident skills that they can then progress with in their own time.
Students will take home everything they have made and will also get to taste lots of them throughout the course. They will also take away a recipe pack including an essential equipment list and recommended retailers.
This course is aimed at students with some cookery or baking experience.
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.
