The French Pastry class was my second with Maria (the first being the Scandinavian Baking Class) and was once again excellent. Maria is as knowledgeable as she is welcoming. The class is informative with step by step guides and tips to make even the novice baker feel that they can recreate the class masterpieces with ease. Such a great way... More

Awesome experience with a small group. Easy to follow and learn even if you've never baked bread before. Two thumbs up.

Maria was the most warm and lovely teacher, and the bakes we made were so delicious! I have always wanted to make cinnamon buns and now I feel like I know how. Thank you Maria and your lovely team.

Although I consider myself a decent baker, the day I spent at the Baking Lab was such a genuinely enjoyable day thanks to Maria and her team. It was a bit like having a masterclass with a friend. The 4 hours flew by and I came away with a renewed love of baking, of Scandi treats and would happily recommend... More

So my children bought me a voucher for a Baking class, and I decided to do one that would stretch my skills, therefore chose the French Pastry class as I have never been able to make it! On reaching the lab where the class was held, I was introduced to the other lovely ladies attending that day. Maria was wonderful,... More

I went on the Cake Baking Masterclass course and we made delicious carrot cake, lemon drizzle and chocolate cake. I had a wonderful day - Maria was a brilliant teacher and a lovely person. We had an amazing lunch thrown in which we weren't expecting at all. I felt like I learnt lots of handy tips which I will remember... More

Wow. I attended the introduction to cake making classes in January 2017. I considered it about time that I made friends with my kitchen after a lifetime of hating it; a legacy inherited courtesy of my 'home economics' teacher in the early '80s. (How much can you learn from opening a packet of Angel Delight? Seriously!) The class was fun,... More

Hi, So my wife and I got classes here as a wedding anniversary gift from my sister. It was the Italian Bread Making Class taught by Emmanuel. This was a great experience as the class was small (8 people) with great personal attention and interaction with everyone. My wife and I love to cook, so we're always reading new recipes... More
