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

We did the danish pastry course earlier this week. It was our 2nd time at Bake with Maria (previously we did pizzas and beer - also highly recommended). We learnt lots, had great fun and have since been eating our way through mounds of cinnamon swirls, spandauers and apple turnovers. The atmosphere is really relaxed, Maria is super friendly and...

After attending 'Baking with Maria' in Sept , My daughter thought it would be a good idea to take 'Mum' to a Baking Masterclass ! My first thought was panic - as her baking skills are more advanced than mine. No need to worry as our tutor Marianne puts you at ease with her friendly manner and explained everything very... More

My husband bought me this class as a birthday present based on the excellent reviews, so I just wanted to come and add my own excellent review for anyone else thinking of taking it! It was absolutely perfect. Being entitled a 'baking masterclass' I was a bit worried that it might expect hugely advanced skills, but it doesn't. Marianne the... More

Hi Rebecca, thanks so much for taking the time to write a review - it's really rewarding to know students get so much from a class. Glad to hear the cake didn't last long! Hope you keep baking at home, and fingers crossed to see you again next year…! Marianne x More
