What our Participants are saying

GREAT BAKING COURSE. Thank you Derek and Orlaith for a really good baking experience! I learnt so much, including why I was never really successful before at baking. The course was really so well presented, and, I'm happy to say I have successfully made the Yogurt and Apple cake for a good friend. Also, I feel more confident now to take what I have learned into my work -to bake for the old people I look after when they have friends to tea. I am now looking forward to the 2 days of bread making and to learning about the different flours and methods. All the very best, and, thank you so much for the professional approach. Helen.
