This year’s Great British Bake Off final may be over, but now’s your chance to learn from the pros.
Bake With A Legend matches up groups of bake-crazy Londoners with stars from GBBOs past to learn the finer arts of cake-based craft. The three-hour experience begins with a demonstration from your celebrity dough-whisperer, before pupils try their hand at creating their own bakes. (A glass of prosecco is provided to kickstart proceedings…)
The classes are hosted in modern, high-quality kitchens with all ingredients provided; and yes, there’ll be a box to take your creations home with you. Competitive sorts will be glad to know that a Star Baker is chosen as a bit of fun, although, seeing as everyone present will have created something delicious, the real winner is EVERYONE.
The next classes are with Andrew Smyth on December 8, making Christmas-inspired Cinnamon Paris-Brest and Orange Tarts; and, on March 9 2019, Glenn Cosby’s Afternoon Tea class will teach you to make eclairs, meringues and scones for the perfect fancy tea. There are only a few places available on each, so you’ll want to book soonish – the perfect gift for the GBBObssessive in your life, perhaps?
