I went to the 'Healthy Bread Baking' class last week and can really recommend it! We did four different recipes, which included rye buns, multi-grain baguettes, multi-seed crackers and rolls. They were all great and I have already done the rye buns and baguettes at home - and it worked!! :-) Maria really took her time with explaining things, and... More

The instructor, Marianne, was absolutely brilliant. She really knows her stuff and is an excellent teacher; simply couldn't have been better. Where the class fell short was the sharing bit. You had to work in pairs for the first two recipes, which meant that if your partner licked her fingers or scratched her head whenever she pleased, then you'd just... More

I have been to two evening courses here, one on Scandinavian and one on healthy baking. The variety of breads baked is wide and Maria teaches a number of techniques with a lot of fun. She has a very healthy attitude to what is good and the operation is slick although the venue is a little hard to find. I... More

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
