    Bake with Maria Pastry class and cake making
    Maria was an amazing teacher the class was very informative and I felt at ease straight away with Maria's warmth. The group was a nice small group and I learnt how to make Choux pastry which was so much fun and piping all new skills to add to my baking which is a passion. The class we organised and fun. At the end of the class Maria gave us a free tote bag to keep our goodies safe in box's which I thoroughly enjoyed when home especially the lemon and poppy seed cake. I would highly recommend this class to everyone for a Saturday afternoon what an incredible way to spend 3 hours.

    Baking is Joy
    Had a really lovely time baking with Maria. Very welcoming, lots of tips garnered along the way. Splendid Kitchen complete with a lady who did all of the clearing up after us (must get myself one of those)! I have to say I had a much better time, once home, where I could tuck into the goodies that we baked. Maria and her recipes are truly lovely !

    An excellent day
    I enjoyed a Sourdough baking class with Maria last week. She is very skilled and knowledgeable and also makes the classes fun in her beautiful kitchen. The other bakers were good company too. I thoroughly recommend the experience and look forward to doing another class.

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

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

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!

I recently took my Mum on Maria’s “Bread Baking Extravaganza Class” as a Christmas present. It’s safe to say it was one of the best baking classes we’ve ever done! It was great value for money and we made 5 different types of bread within the 3 hours that the class runs for.

Maria was a very good teacher, she took the time to help everyone individually and made us all feel comfortable in her kitchen and with each other. Going as far as to bake some delicious cookies & brownies for our arrival!

I would definitely recommend these classes to anyone who was looking to learn baking or as a present to someone! My mum absolutely loved it and has been baking lots of bread since. The focaccia is now a family favourite!

Thanks, Maria!

P.S. Mum said thank you very much for the tip on the macarons - they work perfectly now!

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.

What a fabulous experience with Maria in her perfect baker’s kitchen. The class is organized to perfection, the end results (the yummy baked goods) are next level delicious, and it’s a fun time with other bakers from all over the world. Maria herself is down to earth but so knowledgeable about the science of baking. She communicates clearly and effectively which gives us all a feeling of confidence when we go forth. Cannot thank her enough!!!

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.

Cheryl, you are just the most wonderful person ever. And one of the reasons I keep coming up with new class, just so I can have you back in my kitchen! Lots of love Maria x

I joined Maria for the Cake and Pastry Class last month, which was excellent. Maria made everyone so welcome from the beginning, and her kitchen is the most wonderful space for hosting this type of class. She thought of everything, including tea/coffee and cookies on arrival, aprons, and boxes and bags to take the cake home. She was also an excellent communicator before and after the session.

The class was great fun, but I also learned a lot (as someone who has done a little bit of baking before); Maria is a great teacher and I think you would have a wonderful time no matter your experience level. The cakes I took home were very tasty even a few days later (though to be honest, they didn't last long when I got them home). Thanks, Maria!

This crazy pandemic has been a real bummer and the only thing that makes me and everyone else around me really happy is baking. Thankfully Maria has expanded her baking classes to the Zoom platform and despite the fact that I live in New York, I can feel like I'm in London baking along with her. She is such a wonderful and patient instructor, answering all our questions, improving our techniques and celebrating our bakes! I'm completely addicted and am constantly checking to see what new Zoom classes she's added. Taking an in-person class is still on my bucket list, but while we're all stuck at home this is an amazing option and would recommend it to bakers of all levels.

What a super way to spend a morning !! Maria is a fantastic teacher and over the course of 4 hours she showed us how to make the dough, roll out the laminations, make the pastry cream and make three different types of croissants. This is a real hands on course and even me, who is not even at “novice” level was able to make delicious croissants. We will definitely be back to try our hand on one of Maria’s other classes.
