Hi Sarah, it was good to meet you and thanks very much for the wonderful private lesson, I had such a great time and can actually say that I feel I can recreate what you taught me at home. My kids will be so chuffed! I'll definitely be booking more courses with you soon :)
Pork Pie Making
A well-made pork pie is a British classic loved by many, so we designed this class to teach students all the skills needed to make delicious, additive-free pies, using hot water pastry and fine quality pork.
The class will also include making a simple vegetable pickle that is the perfect with freshly baked pies or any picnic goodies – a great chance to practice those knife-skills!
Often seen as tricky, the tutor will demystify the pastry making and hand raising processes, ensuring students leave with all the knowledge and skills to make their own delicious pies at home, as well as their batch of four pies to share with friends and family.
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.

What our clients say about this course
What a gem of a find. Sarah is charming, knowledgeable and kind (and her mum is lovely too). Class was well structured and instructions were clear. The teaching kitchen is well equipped and provides a great atmosphere. I highly recommend this beautiful setting for classes and I undoubtedly will be back soon.
I have just had the best time making pork pies. It was such a giggle. A huge thank you... My pies are fab, I never thought I could make a pork pie. If anyone is thinking on taking one of Sarah's many courses do it! I'm planning on booking another and taking my sister along. Thank you again and I'll be seeing you soon
