We are thrilled to be collaborating with Long Crichel Bakery and to be offer complimentary two day courses.  Escape to our pantry and join us on day one for a combination workshop of ‘hands on’ cookery and demonstrations to develop your pastry and dessert skills.  

We have tailored a course especially to compliment a following day of baking at The Famous Hedgehog Bakery.  Join Lisa Osman  in the farmhouse kitchen for a cookery class beside the AGA.

This course is designed with beginners in mind and during this seasonal class we will make

  • Pate Brisee – We will make a Dorset Blue Vinny and caramelised onion tart .  Explore how to use rich butter pastry in savoury and sweet dishes.  Use free range eggs and learn how to calculate the quantities for a savoury custard.
  • Rough puff pastry – Tart Tatin.  Collect apples from our orchard, learn to select the best varieties for this classic dessert.  Make a simple caramel sauce as well as a batch of rough puff pastry.
  • Choux pastry – Gougere as a canape.  The festive season will be here before we know it! Practise your piping skills and add this versatile pastry to your repertoire.  Learn how to make a batch of great tasting nibbles from scratch and have them safely stored in the freezer for unexpected guests.
  • Meringues – We make a batch of meringues for you to take home and you can try your hand at rolling a meringue roulade.  A quick and easy dessert that makes a great store cupboard standby.
  • Preserves – Visit the cutting garden and discover the fruit cage.  Pick some Autumn Bliss raspberries and Lisa will demonstrate making a seasonal jam.  From garden to pot in less than 30 minutes.
  • Genoise sponge – Swiss Roll with homemade jam for afternoon tea.  Impressive and easy – once you know how!
