The coffee was good but i found the cakes we bought were heavy and... More

I booked my Mum and myself into the Petit Fours class for my mum's birthday. The pastry school is easy to find and very welcoming on arrival. My Mum and I were beginners, Ruth makes sure to cater to all levels that attend her class. She is an excellent teacher and very nice person. My mum and I will both... More

Attended the petits fours class last week with my enthusiast teenage daughter and could not have enjoyed the day together more. Ruth is fab and gave us lots of time and advice as well as the general course content (which was also amazing). Have attended a few other courses but think this was probably the best. Will def go again.... More

Went to the school rather than the café. Really enjoyed myself and having always wanted to know how to temper chocolate but been rather intimidated by it, now I can. Had taken the truffles and praline class before and really enjoyed it too. Left at the end of the 2 day masterclass with lots of chocolate and my head bursting.... More

I have just been on the 2 day chocolate course on the 28th and 29th April. The first day was hard going as Ruth tries to tell you as much as see can. Ruth is a fantastic and lively bubblie person. I know the course is alot off money but well worth it. The amount off chocolates you make is... More

Attended the Chocolate Masterclass (3rd. & 4th. Feb.), had a fabulous time,got over my fear of chocolate making technicalities thanks to the very informative & hands on approach. Chef Ruth Hinks is a total professional but very down to earth at the same time ably assisted by a super Team. Thank you. Joseph.

This time I attended the Cheesecake and custard tarts class. We were given a very warm welcome by Ruth and her team on a cold and wet day in Peebles. I'm not an experienced baker but managed to produce some amazing looking and tasty treats. Recipes that I thought would be difficult were explained and made relatively simple. You don't... More
