There is so much to learn about the perfect way to make pastry that we have divided our Pastry Masterclass into 2 days. Taught exclusively by Richard Bertinet, our pastry classes are a must whether you are baking for your family dinner, entertaining friends or want to learn how to make and decorate fruit tarts just like those that makes the display in French bakeries look so stunning.
On this Pastry One Masterclass Richard will show you how to make sweet and salted pastry, by hand and in a mixer, with tins and without, how to rest and roll and how you blind bake your pastry. Having mastered the pastry itself, you will also make the fillings for your tarts, master a crème patissière, learn how to finely slice fruit to decorate your tarts, make a quiche Lorraine and a very quick tarte aux pommes.
With Richard you will also make some biscuits. Pastry can be easily adapted to make a range of delicious biscuits which allegedly keep perfectly for a week or 2! There are no rules and they can be made in all kinds of flavours and shapes, Richard will share some of his favourites with you.
The day starts at 10am with breakfast and will finish around 3.30 to 4pm. Includes lunch with wine. Please bring a bag and a large biscuit tin or container with you so that you can take home some of your delicious creations.
“Thank you so much for the most phenomenal day of baking the Bertinet way. I had so much fun and loved all the tips and tricks along the way. It is not often one comes to a class where the Master gives so freely and willingly of his expertise. Thank you also to the fairies who made the day seem so effortless and easy. I will certainly be back – a lot.” Marion
