Introduction to Patisserie


This introduction to creating artisan patisserie is the ideal one-day course for anyone who loves to start their day with a fresh pastry and a strong coffee. With the help of tutor Emmanuel Hadjiandreou, an internationally renowned baker and author, you will learn the skills needed to create artisan patisserie, including working with quality ingredients, lamination of dough and dough folding, rolling and shaping.

This practical course blends a hands-on approach with demonstrations led by experienced technician David Carter to give you the knowledge and confidence you’ll need to make a range of delicious pastries at home, including:

  • Croissant
  • Pain au chocolat
  • Danish pastries
  • Handmade puff pastry.

Refreshments will be available throughout the day, as well as a buffet style lunch prepared by our team of chefs. All ingredients, equipment and recipes will be provided.

''Thoroughly recommend it if you want to learn how to make croissants, pains au chocolat, pains au raisin, almond croissants and a range of Danish pastries.''

''Emmanuel and David are great. The course is well delivered with lots of practical experience and some demonstrations. Emmanuel is hugely knowledgeable and encourages lots of photos and questions.''
