Are you afraid of pastry? Do you love flaky pies and delicate tarts, but think you can’t make them from scratch? Well, this class will change your opinion forever! You’ll learn to make an easy and versatile shortcrust pastry that can be used in a wide variety of dishes. In this hands-on class we’ll make mini free-form, single crust pies (or galettes, if you want to be a little fancy!) – both sweet and savoury, using butter or olive oil for a vegan option. We will make three different fillings (cheese and tomato, sweet potato and a seasonal fruit filling) and you’ll take away some of your creations at the end of the class to enjoy at home! You’ll never fear – or buy – shortcrust pastry again!
