Where are the classes held?
Intimate group classes take place at our hidden kitchen, 1744 rue William (that's in Griffintown, just south of downtown Montreal, 12 min walk from Georges-Vanier metro station) You'll get all the details on how find us in your confirmation email.
If you're staying in the neighborhood after class, ask us for recommendations - there are so many gems close by!
We also travel! Get in touch if you would like to organize a baking class at your home/place of work/vacation rental!
What are group classes like?
Group sizes are kept small so you'll get a chance to measure, sift, mix and taste.
Here's what you get:
- Two hour class baking 2 desserts, or variations on a dessert (all ingredients provided)
- Tea and dessert tasting with your new baking accomplices
- Beautiful photos of you baking (and posing with sweets!)
- Recipes and a box of your freshly baked creations to take home
What if I've never baked before?
Then you're at the right place! Classes are perfect for beginners, with instruction on things like how to separate eggs and how to tell if a cake is done. You'll learn skills you can use in lots of other recipes at home!
What if I'm already a pretty good baker?
Then you're at the right place! You'll learn even more skills, tips and tricks; try new and challenging desserts; meet new people; and enjoy lots of sweet treats.
Are classes offered in French/Spanish?
Yup! It won't be perfect French or Spanish, but you'll get the idea...!
What should I bring?
Nothing, unless you have a notebook you want to take notes in (ingredients, aprons, equipment and takeaway boxes provided, recipe emailed after class). You are welcome to bring a camera, you'll just have to check with the other class participants if you plan on taking pictures of them.
Can I request a specific dessert to be made at my class?
The schedule is set in advance, but you can certainly send suggestions and they may well appear in future classes! If you and your friends want to reserve an entire class, say, for a birthday party, then the curriculum is a little more flexible.
How do you choose the desserts?
They have to be things that can be made in the 2-hour class time, with simple ingredients you can find easily, be fun to make and even more fun to eat. Often, I'll try to include things with individual portions, such as cupcakes, so you can take something home that you have personally worked on.
