Taught exclusively by Richard Bertinet, our full day Pastry Masterclass is 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.
Richard will teach you how to master 3 of the main types of pastry, sweet, savoury and choux. You will be making pastry by hand and in a mixer, with tins and without, learning how to rest and roll and how you blind bake your pastry. Having mastered the pastry itself, you will also make the fillings, a versatile crème patissière, make a seasonal quiche, learn how to finely slice fruit to decorate your tarts and make a frangipane filling. You will also be making natas and learn how to use piping bags for your fabulously retro choux swans, a Bertinet classic.
The day starts at 10am and will finish around 3.30 to 4pm. Please bring a bag and a large biscuit tin or Tupperware 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
