Ashburton Cookery School

Patisserie Week

Our week-long patisserie and baking course is aimed at home cooks who want to immerse themselves in the world of pastries and desserts. During this course you will master the fundamental skills required to create a wide range of classic French patisserie and baking.

Learning from our experienced tutors you will learn to make classic baked goods such as croissants, muffins, cakes and baguettes, and master the art of sweet and savoury pastry with classic tarts, biscuits, exquisite macarons, jellies as well as creams, mousses and working with chocolate.

You will also learn to apply the precise and delicate decoration and presentation techniques that will elevate your patisserie to an impressive level.

By the end of the course you will have a good repertoire of recipes and the confidence to create some stunning dishes.

Please Note: Lunch is provided each day. You will enjoy a dessert at the end of the day round-up, but no additional dinner is provided on this course. You will take a wealth of patisserie away with you.
