It's nicely paced, you learn a lot,... More

I highly recommend the macaron class. We were a group of 8 friends and we all really enjoyed it. We'll be back for another class.

Excellent demonstrations and guidance. I picked up a lot of useful tips. The day included a delicious lunch and we had good things to take home and show off. Highly recommended.

I had the most amazing time at Maria's class. Great venue, 6 people in the class and overcame my fear of yeast breads. Hands on experience and time to ask lots of questions. Great hand-outs and Maria's lovely manner made it such fun and I leaned so much. We made seeded crackers (which are dead easy but delicious), overnight rye... More

An excellent day with Emmanuel last Saturday, learning so much about Italian breads. This has given me the confidence to have a go at these breads at home. This was my second class at the Baking Lab and combined a wealth of knowledge with interesting little tips to make baking life easier. If I am going to be critical at... More

This class is taught by Artisan Baker Emmanuel Hadjiandreou, his knowledge about bread is immense and he has answers to any questions. We learned to make 4 types of bread (rye bread, fig and fennel rye... More

My wife bought me a Bread Making Class for my Birthday, even though I had made bread before at home, it was 50/50 if it turned out. I found that the class gave me the confidence to consistently make a decent loaf and not to panic when I thought the dough had gone wrong!! Maria is a perfect teacher, that... More
