French Breakfast Pastry Class

Learn to make croissants and brioche using traditional techniques and delicious organic butter. These two classic dough recipes can take years to perfect but are both very versatile and can be extended to a number of recipes. You will learn how to produce wonderful buttery croissants, pains au chocolat, pains aux raisins and brioche. After a demonstration on how to make and shape the croissant dough and brioche, you will make your own croissant dough to take home and in addition, you will shape your own brioche. You will, of course, get to taste everything that you make!

"The irresistible French breakfast feast was demystified and the prospect of our own pastry chilling to take home and create our own later in the week was almost too much!" 

"I did the French pastries class on Saturday morning which was great. We were welcomed with tea/coffee and freshly baked scones before beginning our lesson. Our teacher Ghalid was enthusiastic and a great teacher. We learnt how to make all the classics and even got to take dough home to make croissants the next day. It was a great three hours!"

About The Taste of Things

Bonding over a passion for gastronomy and mutual admiration, their relationship develops into romance and gives rise to delicious dishes that impress even the world's most illustrious chefs. But Eugenie is fond of her freedom and has never wanted to marry Dodin. So, he decides to do something he has never done before: cook for her.
