The Great British (Myerscough) Baking Workshop

About the course

Are you a fan of The Great British Bake Off? Does watching it inspire you to get baking? If so, why not come and join us for our own Great British Baking Full Day Workshop where you will learn lots of hints, tips and skills for whipping up perfect cakes and bakes.

Cake: You will don your apron and head for the iconic Myerscough kitchen to develop your baking prowess, creativity and skill. Your first signature challenge is a well-loved cake with Royal beginnings that is truly fit for a queen – The Victoria Sandwich.

Bread: You are now faced with bread and will ‘knead up’ some seemingly simple white bread rolls. These floury delights will be proved to perfection and impressively well risen.

Pastry: With bread and cakes all polished off, you can prove your skills with pastry. Using a sweet shortcrust pastry, you will make a fruit crumble pie which is usually devoured before anyone leaves Myerscough kitchen.

Chocolate: The pressure is on you to get to grips with one of the most difficult ingredients – chocolate (difficult as in not eating it all before you arrive at the Myerscough kitchen). You will whip up a luxury chocolate fudge cake and will have a go at tempering chocolate, making a luscious ganache and piping with white chocolate. This is a pure chocolate indulgence show stopper of an evening.

On your marks, get set… BAKE!
