A hands-on baking class. Class is limited to 12 students. Alongside the tasting of baked goods, a seasonal salad, cheeses and cured meats will be served with wine and beer. Bring a sealable container to bring home leftover slices of the baked goods.

In honor of the nurturing womxn in our lives, we invite you a special edition of our Great British Bake Off-themed class inspired by the one and only Mary Berry. In the original lineup, Mary always encouraged the contestants while donning a fantastically bright blazer and had an extra twinkle in her eye with the prospect of any booze-flavored concoction. She was both impressive and accessible during her tenure on the show, an uncommon pairing for a reality TV judge.

Join Jennifer and delve into a small handful of the many recipes Mary Berry created. You'll work together in teams to achieve these recipes and in honor of the holiday, we would love for you invite a womxn who has inspired and cheered you on in your life. At the end of the class, everyone will partake in a communal tasting of the goods with a savory hearty snack with wine and beer.
