Perfect Pastry

Making Perfect Pastry is an art form that everyone can learn. There are many types of pastry, some made with oil, others with butter but the key to any good pastry is knowing how to handle it and how to work it.

Our chef with over 20 years of professional cooking experience will show you how to make a number of different types of pastry, such as the Roux Brothers Rough Puff Pastry, Hot Water Pie Crust Pastry, the Classic French Sweet Pastry and more..

In this class we cover the four cornerstones of pastry, giving you a great foundation if you are a beginner.  Even if you've had a go before you may have found it frustrating and have questions like 'why is my flaky pastry not short enough?' or why it cracks when you roll it!

Crumbling, rolling, mixing, creaming, when to blind bake, when not to,  best egg wash for a perfect glaze and many more skills will be taught.

We also break for a sit-down lunch where you will get to sample some of chef's real butter pastry.

Just make sure you have room in your fridge, as you will take home a good number of pies, tarts and pastry to sample at a later date!

Thank you for a brilliant day on Thursday - worth every penny and certainly boosted my confidence about making pastry. The sausage roll has already been given the seal of approval by my family!

The class size was just right, and Des imparts his expertise in such a friendly, calm way.

Many thanks to the whole Flavours team for a great cooking experience.
