GET READY FOR AUTUMN WITH OUR TARTS & PIES SERIES

Master a variety of pastries, techniques, and fillings across 4 weeks.

Pastry is an absolute fundamental of professional and home baking alike. Across the four weeks we’ll be going in depth on all aspects of working with sweet and savoury pastries. If you enjoy working with pastry but are looking to perfect your skills or if you’re totally new and want a comprehensive introduction, our series will cover it all. Each week you will focus on one area of pastry with either tarts or pies, to ensure you get to grips with all aspects and to showcase the versatility of each variety of pastry.

Alongside our expert bakers you will create seasonal fruit pies using lattice techniques in week one, progressing to traditional fine French tarts in week two. We will cover savoury pies, using a hot water crust and a free form technique with a tomato galette. The final week will push your new found skills and the knowledge you’ve amassed over the series to create two celebration worthy bakes.

WEEK 1: Pies (lattice cherry pie & lemon chess pie)

WEEK 2: Tarts (pear & frangipane tart & French chocolate tart)

WEEK 3: Savoury (potato, onion and cheese hot water crust & tomato ricotta galette)

WEEK 4: Celebration (chocolate clementine meringue pie & caramel macadamia tart)
