Maria and her team do a great job. Maria is charming and knows her stuff - we did a day's worth of Italian Bread Making - Pizza, Grissini, Ciabatta and Focaccia. Her helpers buzz around all day cleaning up the mess made by the class. We were expertly guided through the processes required to produce the finished goods and we... More

I recently attended this course. The instructor Marianne was knowledgeable, skillful and excellent teacher. However the Baking Lab is cramped and at £145 for the class I expected to not to have to share with another student - we worked in pairs sharing electric mixers even piping bags (this should be reserved for schoolrooms!). By having too many students and... More

We had an awesome day yesterday on the Introduction to Bread Baking course with Maria. Their baking lab is quite hard to find but really great when you do get there. It's a small class so you get lots of Maria's attention and she herself is just lovely! We're so proud of our bread - we definitely hope to do... More

A birthday gift from my husband. What a fabulous day! The chef who taught was patient, highly knowledgeable and made the class fun. Came home with gorgous Frasier, almond cakes and flourless chocolate cake. All of which were devoured fairly quickly. Venue was great, easy parking. Everyone working in the kitchen was brilliant and so helpful. Nothing to be nervous... More

Attended 3 courses so far on bread making (Italian, artisan and French) with baking with Maria and as a keen amateur bread maker I was very pleased with the whole experience. Everyone was helpful, giving tips and tricks for variations on the recipes we were making.. Emmanuel and Maria know their business, baking was a lot simpler than I initially... More

I met my daughter here for a birthday treat (mine!) on Saturday. We had a very enjoyable day making croissants, pain au raisin and pain chocolate, with demonstrations showing how we could use the ingredients to make other Danish pastries. Maria had great energies and her enthusiasm was infectious. We took away two boxes crammed full of our goodies -... More

I attended a French Patisserie class last week. It was very well organised and the teacher, Marianne, was excellent. I have already tried making the fruit flans and the financiers at home and I am pleased to say they were a great success. I shall definitely go for another baking class in the future.

I recently signed myself onto the intro in bread baking and intro into pastry with a voucher I received for Christmas for Bake with Maria and I must say from the moment I walked in the door I knew I had struck gold. The setting of this little studio and small classes makes it the perfect environment for any baker... More
