This was my first time baking anything and it was a lovely evening. The class is very small, only 6 others attended, which made it much more personal and easier to ask for 1-to-1 help.

As an experienced home baker I was looking to improve some... More

Booked for my fiance who enjoyed the whole experience of baking bread. Maria is a lovely teacher and her passion shows. What amazed me the most is how our bread turned out, they looked as good as the ones in the bakery!

Fantastic evening baking yummy bread. Lots of top tips to making break baking accessible, and to ensure success in your own kitchen. Maria was a lovely teacher, patient, and very passionate about baking. She talks you through the whole process of bread making so you understand the reason behind kneading, proving etc. One top tip I learnt is not to... More
