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 quality pork.

The techniques taught in this class are a little tricky especially for complete novices, but the tutor will demonstrate the pastry making and hand raising processes, before helping students with their individual pies. Participants will leave with all the knowledge needed to practice and perfect their skills in their own time and produce more of their own delicious pies at home. Each student will leave with four freshly baked pork pies to share with friends and family.

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
