Learn all the baking skills you’ll need to impress family and friends this Christmas, mastering everything from stollen to mince pies with a twist.
This comprehensive one-day course, led by renowned baker and author Emmanuel Hadjiandreou, will teach you all the practical skills needed to master puff pastry, marzipan and enriched doughs – the essentials in Christmas baking.
During the day, you’ll create a selection of hand-crafted festive favourites, including:
- German-inspired stollen
- A modern twist on the traditional mince pie.
The School of Artisan Food makes a conscious effort to reduce waste and packaging, so we encourage you to bring your own containers to transport your food home.
No prior baking experience is necessary; just enthusiasm and a willingness to work alongside other food lovers.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day, as well as a buffet-style lunch prepared by our team of artisan chefs. All ingredients, equipment and recipes will be provided.
Emmanuel Hadjiandreou trained as a baker in South Africa and has baked his way across all continents and cuisines, winning awards and writing engaging books on breadmaking.
The School of Artisan Food is nestled in the heart of Sherwood Forest on The Welbeck Estate, Nottinghamshire, just a few minutes from the A1 and M1.
