Sweet and Savoury Pastry Course

In this new cookery class we show you how to master the making of two classic pastry types: Shortcrust Pastry and Puff Pastry. Using the shortcrust pastry technique we will create our savoury dish, an impressive asparagus and smoked trout tartlet finished off with quails eggs.. For our sweet dish we will learn how to make puff pastry from scratch and have enormous fun making Pastel de Nata, also known as the famous Portuguese Custard Tart. Utilising your new found pastry skills you'll create a dinner party worthy main accompanied by a flavoursome salad and enjoy eating your Pastel De Nata with coffee at the end in this fun Mediterranean cookery class.

This class explores Portugal's favourite delicacy: the Portuguese custard tart, also known as Pastel de Nata, which has taken London by storm in the last few years with pop up bakeries specialising in producing only this rich flaky treat.

Let us guide you step-by-step through the surprisingly simple method to create your very own puff pastry from scratch, and rich, cinnamon infused custard filling complete with those trademark scorch marks on top.

Our pastry cookery course will also cover how to make a savoury smoked trout tartlet, straight from the French kitchen accompanied by a flavour filled butternut squash and lentil salad with soy vinaigrette to create a delicious meal to whet your appetite for a trip to Southern Europe.

Both are great fun to bake and ideal for impressing guests at those parties we look forward to hosting once again!
