Get your hands in the dough! In my baking classes, you will discover the reasons WHY. Share in the excitement of how understanding a few basic principles can transform your home baking. Tips, tricks, fail-proof recipes, and the reasons why your Grandmother mixed, kneaded and baked things the way she did. Take home inspiration, confidence, and goodies to share.
For the budding chefs in the family. Through a fun mixture of hands-on cooking, fresh recipes, and outdoor games, I teach the basics around kitchen safety, cooking/baking skills, cleanliness, and nutrition. Delicious healthy snacks, breads, cookies, and brunch food are all on the menu during the week as the kids measure, mix, chop, and cook their way through a host of delicious recipes. They build confidence in the kitchen and have fun while they are at it! There will be some snacks to take home and share with the family at the end of the day.
Come celebrate! This fun baking class will be a happy haven from holiday stress. My fail-proof recipes cover the range - everything from homemade cinnamon buns and biscotti to chocolate treats and holiday classics. Class will include gift ideas, make-ahead tips, and a few wheat-free and vegan treats, as well as valuable information on getting the best from your favourite family recipes. Samples to eat, and a few to take home. Note: Please make sure to eat a nutritious meal before this class, since we will be enjoying only sweets and desserts in class.
