My husband and I, both novice bakers (to put it politely!), did the Baking With Maria course which is absolutely excellent. Maria is incredibly lively, friendly, helpful and encouraging, gently pointing you in the right direction and boosting your confidence. The fact that the people on our course had varying levels of pre-existing baking skills didn't matter at all as... More

I have just come back from the most fantastic 6 days baking with Maria in Tuscany. I thought I was addicted to her classes but now I can confirm I definitely am addicted. Villa Boccella, in Lucca, Tuscany (where the course is located) is just to die for - everything is authentic - including the instruction in Italian cooking and... More

During my short visit to London, I decided to stay a day with Maria and her team to improve my bread making skill. It was a wonderful experience and I would love joining more classes in future. Please keep up with the good work.

Having previously attended a cake baking course at 'Bake with Maria', which was a gift (subject of a previous review), I have now followed this up with both the French and Italian bread courses - presented by Emmanuel and Maria respectively. After three visits, with three different instructors, I can confirm that the standard is consistently high, and the day... More

My husband and I attended Maria's Intro to Bread-Baking class recently and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Maria and her team warmly greeted us upon arrival and offered up the most delicious carrot cake muffins pre-class too! Joined at our table were 6 other fellow baking enthusiast students of varying degrees of baking experience. The class size was perfect and the... More

This was a cake making session. I have baked before with mixed results. This was my wife's treat, to me, as our anniversary present. While it is difficult to find (tucked away totally out of sight), the size of premises meant that there weren't many people fussing over everything. Our instructor was very knowledgeable and experienced. She made us very... More

I attended the cake baking Masterclass last weekend at Maria's Baking. We were welcomed with a cup of coffee and a delicious leek scone. The class was taught by Marianne, a pastry chef, who was keen to share her knowledge with us. She was aided by a team of very able assistants who did the washing up and made us... More

Then you'd better come to one of the many classes they have! I left with so many tips to make great bread. I cannot believe I can make a bread in 10 mins with only 20mins baking and no waiting time in between! I have already tried many variances already! Thanks for the great evening and to Maria for answering... More
