Would you like to learn new patisserie skills? Join multi-award-winning pastry chef and chocolatier Ross Sneddon on this five-day hands-on course.


During this professional-level, five-day course, Ross will introduce you to a range of contemporary cakes and pastries, helping you master some of the techniques used to make patisserie.

The course will show how to break down complex recipes, so they are easy to understand and reproduce. Students will learn the key techniques and formulations that will form the building blocks required for their own creative cake and patisserie making.

He will also discuss flavours and tastes and, as befits somebody who is in charge of the pastry section of grand hotels, working in a safe and efficient way.

At the end of the course, all these elements will come together in the production of several amazing products, all suitable for restaurants or patisseries.

This is a very hands-on course where practice will make perfect. Ross shares his expertise and his love of his craft in a patient and professional way.

Ross will be teaching you the following:

  • Raspberry and pistachio macaron cake
