Natural baking is easy, fun and most importantly, delicious. If you'd like to learn how to bake the way I do then do come to one of my classes. I teach private classes for up to five people in my kitchen in north London. They are bespoke, designed especially for you and I can work around any intolerances and allergies. Prices vary according to needs, so get in touch to find out more. Private classes last for three hours and are a great day out!
I also teach larger groups in various locations in London. Please see below for my next classes.

I am so happy to be working with my incredibly talented friend, Joey O'Hare, and the award-winning and one of my favourite places in Suffolk, Pump Street Bakery, on two pop-up suppers during the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival fringe events, 2017.

Our five-course, vegcentric feasts will open with a welcome drink of Adnams sparkling wine with blackcurrant and lavender shrub. The meals will start with smoked haddock and Shipcord soufflé and culminate in a molten dark chocolate tart. We are proud to be working with some of Suffolk’s best food producers throughout the menu, including Pinney's of Orford, Marybelle Dairy, Fen Farm Dairy, Hodmedods, Maple Farm Kelsale, and of course Pump Street Bakery’s sourdough bread and chocolate.
