All our classes are designed to be “hands-on” so you will make your own creation! The chef will only have a maximum of 9 participants so she can spend time with you and guide you through the process. Whether you are an experienced baker or you have never turned on an oven, our chefs will welcome you and adjust their teaching to your level. You will learn the techniques so you can do the recipes at home with confidence. You will leave the class with what you made as well as a recipe booklet.
