A hands-on baking class. Class is limited to 12 students. Alongside the tasting of baked goods, a seasonal salad will be served with wine and beer. Bring a sealable container to bring home leftover slices of the baked goods.
This class is for fans of that country across the sea that gifted the world one of the most addictive television series to grace our screens: The Great British Bake Off. As we watch the sweet, hard-working contestants stress over their ovens and feel pacified by landscape shots of the English countryside, those of us watching from our American couches drool and wonder, "What exactly do those things taste like and how can I make them?" Join Jennifer and delve into iconic British pastries and other recipes tackled by the contestants. You'll work together in teams to achieve these recipes (unfortunately, we don't have the budget for a celebrity panel of judges). 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. We're excited to offer this class during Pride 2019 in San Francisco, and offer a few updates to the menu with recipes providing a little more pizzazz for the celebrations! You'll leave the class armed with hands-on experience, tested recipes, and the confidence to wow your friends and bring the best food to your next viewing party!
