Learn in our Academy of Food

Patisserie classes

A quote from the great leading Chef Marie-Antoine Carême (1783 – 1784) stated that there are five fine arts “whereby the principal branch is confectionery”. And we say that patisserie is part of the confectionery branch!

Our patisserie classes are planned to broaden your confidence and ability in this fine art. Our classes are a perfect and enjoyable way to take the next steps in creativity.
