Hi there, my name is Valeria Suppa, I'm an Italian baking teacher and food stylist based in London. I started as a self-taught baker, before receiving my professional training and working as a baker and cake decorator in a bespoke cakes parlour. My expertise ranges from cakes to patisserie and desserts of all sorts, with a special focus on Italian baking.

I have years of experience teaching classes for all levels, both in-person and online. I always try to make every baking experience entertaining and informative at the same time.

During the last 13 years, I've lived in different countries around Europe and South America, learning a lot about different techniques, new ingredients and unusual flavour combinations. I speak fluent English, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.

I had such a wonderful experience making with Valeria! She was so kind, welcoming, and knowledgeable!

I took the afternoon tea baking as a one on one class when I was looking to do something memorable during my visit to London. I can't say enough good things about my experience!

All of the ingredients we needed were ready to go and very well organized especially since we made 3 different recipes !

The timing of the class was also perfect. I absolutely recommend this to anyone looking to learn new or improve current baking skills. I can see this being super fun for small friend groups as well

Thank you Valeria
