If you’ve always wanted to make great desserts but can’t quite perfect your pastry, this is the class for you!

Techniques you will learn:

  • How to expertly make, rest, roll and blind bake the perfect sweet pastry shell.
  • How to perfectly poach pears to fill the tart.
  • Make a Frangipane to complement the pears and fill the tart.
  • How to make a Crème Anglaise.


You will use the above techniques to create a your dish. Full recipes, including ingredients list and method, are provided for you to take home to add to your repertoire so you can keep on cooking them time and time again.

  • Pear Frangipane Tart
  • Crème Anglaise

What you can take home:

There is a tasting session after each class where you have the chance to sample the tutor’s version of each dish. You will take your sweet pastry tart to enjoy at home!

Please note that you do not need to bring any equipment or ingredients with you as everything will be provided by the cookery school and is included in the cost. You will however need to bring a couple of sizeable (minimum 1L) food storage containers to take your food home in.

Tea and coffee are provided throughout on all of our classes.
