Patisserie with Rebecca Heath of Hestia

Patisserie with Rebecca Heath of Hestia Patisserie 

We are delighted to be welcoming Rebecca Heath to Hunters Academy of Food this year for her Hestia Patisserie and Entremets class.

Entremets are a layered dessert that Rebecca has become renowned for as a speciality of hers. Each layer is comprised of a different sweet treat, ranging from mousses, sponges, fruit compotes, jellies, crèmeaux, biscuit, or bavarois, all often covered in a glaze. It can be as many layers, in as many colours, with as many tastes as you can imagine. The result should be a stunning, delightful treat full of complimentary flavours and textures. There are endless possibilities to delight when it comes to entremets – join us to learn the essential skills to get started.

Full of delightful treats, and expertise, this class is sure to be a wonderful introduction for anybody interested in discovering more about the colourful, stunning world of entremets.

Hestia Patisserie is run by classically trained chef Rebecca. After starting her career at Westminster Kingsway College on a three-year Professional Chef Diploma and working in high end hotels and restaurants in London, she moved to Nottingham to work at Michelin-starred restaurant, Sat Bains and then onto Copenhagen, Denmark, to work at various Michelin-starred restaurants. Upon returning to Norfolk, she has concentrated predominantly on patisserie, which has inspired her to establish her own business.
