It is possible to register for the full 2-day course or book 1 of the two days.


ONLINE baking Class taught in English

Price of full 2-day course: 85€/participant*
Price per class**: 50€/participant*
Number of Participants: 6 maximum

*Number of participants refers to the number of individual connections to our zoom session. You can be multiple people in the same kitchen but we ask that you try not to be more than 2 people as much for your own benefit as for your fellow participants & chef-instructor.
** It is possible to register for only 1 day of this course series as you prefer. Please note that some recipes are started on the first day and finished the second day. You will have the full recipes for any day for which you are registered so you can complete anything you did not take part in, in class.

Number Recipes: 7 recipes
Average Food Cost: About 20-30 euros and assumes that you have some basic ingredients available in your kitchen (Sugar, Flour, Eggs . . .)
For accuracy with the recipes: For some of the recipes we may do in this class, there are some essential tools: A stand-up mixer (a hand-held may be used but it won’t be as easy), a candy thermometer (essential for sugar confection and is not required for all recipes), Piping bags, and tips (depending on the recipe), and a kitchen scale (French baking and pastry are very precise and a scale is the only way to control accuracy).
This class will be offered as follows: The time the class is scheduled is based on CET (Central European Time). While we have tried to calculate the time in a few time zones, we ask that you please ensure you check your time zone.
