Attended a class of 6 on choux pastry, lemon and poppy seed cake and a chocolate and orange cake. Very pleased with the results and everything went to plan.
Although I thought there would not be enough time to complete the tasks, Maria ensured with her pre weighed ingredients already provided that we all came away with fantastic results in card cake boxes in a special tote bag. A nice touch!
A friendly group of other participants along with Maria's enthusiastic and knowledgeable approach made for a fun 3 hours.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for me. Yes, it's quite surprising how much you can get done once all the ingredients are prepped ;) Hope you have had a go at the recipes at home. Happy Baking! Maria x

Just did another class with Maria - croissant/pain au chocolate and pain aux raisins (or in my case chocolate chip!) and had another wonderful experience. It was very enjoyable and highly productive - and I have to say that what I produced actually looked and tasted like croissants etc! I was most impressed - while I take some credit, most of it goes to Mari, as her patient encouragement and joyfulness is an inspiration. I can't wait to book my next class!

As always Andrew - so AMAZING to have you (and Charlotte!) back in the kitchen. I was really pleased how well our Croissants turned out despite it being a warm day! Hope you'll be practising them at home ;) Maria x

I was very lucky to attend Maria’s cake and pastry class back in March through a voucher I was given as a birthday present from a group of friends.

I went on my own but immediately felt comfortable when I met the small group of other keen amateur bakers that were attending the morning also.

Maria’s kitchen was lovely and spacious with everything very well laid out and organised for the class.

The class itself was brilliant. For each bake, she first demonstrated the key points and then armed with sheets of instructions we then got into our pairs to emulate what she had just taught us, all the while with Maria on hand to patiently help and guide us through.

It was very obvious that Maria has a really in depth knowledge of baking and was able to answer all the questions we had and go into technical explanations as to the reason why certain methods were best. For me, it was great knowing the ‘why’ as well as the ‘how’ and her hints and tips have stayed with me since.

The whole morning went by too quickly and our end results were beautiful and tasted delicious.

If you want to learn how to really bake well in warm and intimate surroundings, this is the class for you.

Dear Alisa, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I always appreciate feedback but even more so right now during the Lockdown. It puts a huge smile on my face. So thank you for making my day :) Hope you have managed to do some baking during the lockdown. Big hug Maria x

I spent the morning with Maria for her cake and pastries class and it was so lovely! I went on my own with a gift voucher someone had given me for my birthday and it was such a good time! Maria welcomed us inter her stunning kitchen and patiently and kindly guided us through making some unbelievably good treats. She was so good at explaining but still letting us build confidence by hanging back and only assisting when we asked for it. I feel feb spoiled as someone who bakes at home and hates the dishes, as Maria flawlessly manoeuvred around us tidy as we went. She also premeasured the ingredients which was so handy and talked to us about the importance of measuring accurately. She provided us with tea, coffee and water and at the end gave us boxes and the most gorgeous canvas tote to take our goodies away. I would certainly return and maybe book her for a group event with some friends, add some bubbles to cake-baking and sounds like the perfect time to me! Honestly it was so fun and many thanks to Maria for a really great day.

I have, over the last couple of years, had the pleasure of attending many of Maria’s classes, as well as being fortunate enough to go on her Culinary holiday to Tuscany (Amazing!). This class was brilliant, you came away with an abundance of skills (and tasty treats). We covered 3 foundation recipes (sweet pastry, choux pastry and pastry cream), then combined and enhanced them into the most delicious treats (French fruit tartlet, Choux au Craquelin Buns and Raspberry and pistachio tarts ). How Maria managed to demonstrate, teach and support us all is sheer magic! Maria is a brilliant teacher, she imparts her knowledge with ease, she has a relaxed manor and approach, All are welcomed from the novice to the seasoned.

I have gained so much experience over the years, even during lockdown there were lovely online lessons. These are great classes, you need no excuse: birthdays, anniversary etc... just treat yourself, that’s what I do!

Thank you Maria.

We were a family party of 10 with ages ranging from 6-60+ and we can honestly say this activity provides fun for all the family. Maria guided us, interacted with us and taught us techniques that were life changing in the cake world. As we broke off into teams there was a healthy competitive spirit and we set about making beautiful pizzas, carrot cakes, lemon drizzle and chocolate cakes which we all devoured for lunch. A really different, fun activity and highly recommended. Loved it.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend one of Maria's sour dough bread classes during my recent time in London. From the booking, to communication about the class, the setting in her beautiful kitchen, our wonderful and scrumptious morning tea and lunch, to the actual class itself with Maria happily and skillfully sharing her knowledge, whilst encouraging us all to make great sour dough bread - this was one of the best baking classes I have attended - and there has been quite a few! I am hopeful that one day in the future I will get to return. Thanks Maria.

Hi Cindy, I'm so happy that you managed to squeeze in my baking class before being sent back early to Tasmania. I hope you are managing during the lock down and hopefully have some time to practice some sourdough baking. Happy baking! Maria x

I’ve just finished my second baking course with Maria - what a great experience. Maria is really knowledgeable and friendly, her kitchen is the perfect space for small group teaching and I now have confidence to bake my own bread.

Thank you Maria.

I am not an experienced baker at all. I booked Maria’s class with the hope to learn some technical tips and gain confidence to continue baking on my own. I got everything I was looking for from her class and more. Maria is very friendly and made me feel at ease from the very start. She is very organised and professional. The class environment provides the right mix of cosy relaxation while delivering a service. I also felt very safe in her class. I would definitely go again. The class can be great for team days and friends fun days out. And the best thing was I came away with a huge bag full of tasty and fresh treats, no additives or preservatives in sight. Thank you Maria!

Just done my third baking class with Maria and frankly I can't quite believe that my Bundt cakes and Lemon/Poppy Seed cake looked and tasted as good as they did! Maria explains everything clearly and calmly and is very encouraging during the class. I would recommend her class to everyone interested in improving/starting their baking. I can't wait for the Italian baking course I am doing in a few weeks!
