Baking Enlightenment: Mastering the Basics of Baking
Fed up of soggy bottoms, cracking crusts and shrinking shells? Are you clueless about where it all goes wrong? This workshop with Canadian patisserie specialist Debs Thompson is packed with helpful hints and tips that will ensure you get it right every time.

Course details

If you've never considered the type of oven you have, the temperature of ingredients, gluten science, how different leavenings & shortenings affect texture and consistency then this course will enlighten you. Through 14 recipes in total you will master the basics of baking. This is baking enlightenment. The best thing is, you get a selection of indulgences to take home - if they last long enough!
You'll start by making basic sweet and savoury shortcrust pastries, move on to deliciously light puff pastry, cakes, cookies & scones.
Debs was a great tutor - totally unflappable and full of tips. There was so much cake to take home. My neighbours will be thrilled.

Had great fun butter bashing. Made puff pastry from scratch which was a first. Good small group teaching so lots on individual attention. Debs brought my efforts back from the brink of disaster couple of times. Jenny from Wilmslow.
