The baking Lab is a hidden gem in the lovely neighborhood of Swiss Cottage. Getting there was exciting enough, since I had just moved to London, and could hardly find my way from the supermarket to my home. The baking lab team go out of their way to assist you, in finding your way to their front door. Though it... More

The class was a very nice occasion to do something different. I have been making bread since I was a kid, with my mum, as we never once bought bread from the bakery. To date, I still do not buy bread. Sliced bread is not allowed in my house! I wanted to learn the few important tricks to make great... More

Had a really great time on the "Enhanced Breadmaking" course. The staff are very helpful, humorous, and friendly. Today I am recommending this to all of my friends and colleagues. Will definitely attend further sessions. Dave.

It isn't a particularly scenic approach to the baking lab, but once you get in every last detail has been thought of, and the equipment and facilities are excellent, though space is tight. In addition to our tutor, there were 3 other staff there who took care of cleaning and tidying as we went along, and preparation of a delicious... More

Class is fun and informative, tutor is helpful, and the skills I picked up will come in handy. I liked that there was time to ask questions and get advice for future baking. Really great class I would recommend to anyone.

My confidence in baking has never been great but the American Baking Class just did wonders to it. Its a small group of four and hence there was enough one to one attention to go around. Marianne paid special attention to my skills in icing and I must admit, I am ready to take up challenges now. I have even... More
