Is the baking craze here to stay?

Every time I open the paper I read something about the Great British Bake Off, now in the fifth series, with six million viewers it seems the craze is here to stay. It is an exciting time for pastry, cakes, pies and artisan breads, which in particular, have seen a rise (!) in popularity, with more and more people taking classes and courses, opening independent shops and pop ups and even pushing the big supermarkets to stock more speciality breads.

At Cookery School we have our own form of the Great British Bake Off – a four-day intensive baking course which covers cakes, sweet & savoury pastry, pies, quick breads, yeast breads and croissants. This fast-track course throws you into baking with all the hands-on prep and cooking that you need to get going, understand the key principles and get confident to cook at home. With small groups you get the best quality teaching, advice, tips and guidance that you need to discover where your interests lie…

You might even find yourself spurred on to apply for the next British Bake Off…
