We thoroughly enjoyed our Introduction to Breadmaking Course. It removed the mysteries of breadmaking which is so often promoted by others and taught us that it can be a really very simple procedure. The day was perfectly paced and very friendly and relaxed. We will definitely be booking for some more courses as it was such fun. Many thanks.
Victoria Sponge and Jam-Making (SEASONAL, June – September only)
A quintessentially British teatime bake! Completely hands on, you’ll make a delicious, moist sponge completely before filling it with fresh cream and your own homemade strawberry jam. Each student will have their own stand mixer and induction hob to make their delicious bake and preserves independently.
A lovely class for an aspiring baker, but also great fun for more confident bakers to enjoy together, so perhaps bring a long your friends for your own mini Bake Off!
This class runs during the British strawberry season only, to get the best quality fruit and therefore the most delicious jam!
For younger guests (aged 9+) we recommend working alongside the adult accompanying them. You will still each make cakes and jam to take home but will share your equipment. Please enter the age of your younger guest in the notes when booking so we can contact you before you attend.

What our clients say about this course
Sarah and Annie were absolutely fantastic at helping us ease into learning to make a classic Victoria sponge and also the jam to go in it too. The instruction and advice Sarah gave were easy to understand and helpful. We booked this course for my dad's 60th birthday present and we are so pleased we did, dad thoroughly enjoyed himself and delightful tea went the extra mile to make his birthday even more special.
THANK YOU SARAH AND ANNIE!
The course was informal, fun and I picked up a lot of hints and tips, you got to chat with like minded people and it was very social. As I am Gluten intolerant my recipe was tailored to) me which was also of interest for the other participants. Sarah is a fantastic tutor and has a wealth of knowledge, she includes everyone in the group and makes it an enjoyable yet informative experience
