The coolest part? This class takes part on a Dutch houseboat!

Head onto the boat and get started with this fun baking class in London! Your friendly and experienced teacher will offer each adult guest a chilled glass of Spanish Cava to sip whilst showing you how to create a deliciously gooey handmade dough then mould, shape and fry it to create a selection of super moreish churros - at this point you can get hands on with dough and frying techniques. You'll then be shown how to whip up a thick chocolate sauce from scratch to complete your delicious dish, ready to enjoy at the end of your class.

Sticking to a vegan or gluten free diet? No worries, your teacher can easily tweak the ingredients to suit you, just let them know after booking! Up your plant-based game by adding awesome vegan churros to your repertoire.

Tere was an absolutely fantastic host that I would recommend to anyone. She made us feel welcome right away, and of course taught us how to make some very tasty churros. A really enjoyable class. Already talking about going back for one of the other classes on offer! Thank you again.

I booked the lovely churros making session with Tere, as a surprise for my husband birthday and it did not disappoint!
Tere was lovely and very welcoming. She gave us a tour of her boat and explain it’s origins, and also her background. And then we dived into the churros class while chatting. The churros were delicious and we enjoyed them with homemade chocolate sauce. Tere took pictures during the classes and sent them over to me afterwards.
If you are looking for a unique, out of the box experience, do not look further as this is the one

Laura Colley Jun 2023

We really enjoyed our churros and chocolate class with Tere! She is a very friendly, chatty host, and it was so unique to have the experience on her houseboat. We would recommend to anyone who is looking for something special to do with a friend or significant other :)

Alice Mills Apr 2023

Would recommend this class to anyone and everyone interested in a fun few hours in London Tere was an amazing host that made us feel right at home - we couldn’t have asked for more. The churros are delicious and you really do learn a lot; not just about cooking, but the wonderful stories that Tere has to tell.

Yasin Aziz Mar 2023

Tere was amazing! From the get go we were made to feel welcome and comfortable. She showed us around the harbour before we boarded her lovely house boat. The churro making experience was not only fun and tasty but educational too. I would love to go to make Churros again and to have a nice conversations with Tere. We had a great time!

Hira Dar Mar 2023

Fantastic experience! The host is so lovely and a great teacher! Really enjoyed making the churros and chocolate sauce. Beautiful cat on board too! Highly recommend as a fun date idea!

Halima Aziz Mar 2023

The class was informative, super fun and definitely an experience I would recommend to anyone looking to learn how to make churros! Tere was an absolutely amazing host, so welcoming and knowledgeable about cooking and baking. The star of the show was of course the super friendly ragdoll cat who sat next to us while we munched on the churros. And as a highlight you’re on a boat! I’ve never had better churros, and never in such a nice environment!

Tere was an amazing host and made us feel so welcome in her lovely home. She was very friendly and knowledgeable about everything - we felt just like we were visiting a friend for a glass of prosecco!

Will Kilmurray Feb 2023

A Christmas present from my brother that I did with my girlfriend. The class is incredibly fun and Terre is amazing.

James Hedge Jan 2023

Tere, our host, was a pleasure throughout; talking us through both the area and the intricacies of churro making
The cozy houseboat and complementary Cava Brut made for a comfortable and relaxed environment, and a bucket-load of delicious churros to eat at the end didn't hurt either!
All in all a lovely experience, would do again :)

I bought this as a birthday present for a friend and there were just the 2 of us along with Tere, the host.
We spent a lovely couple of hours sipping Cava while learning how to make "proper" Spanish churros and chocolate.
The location (on a boat in the shadows of Canary Wharf) added to the whole experience - lots to talk about - and Tere was a wonderful host/teacher. We came away feeling not just that we'd learnt a new skill but that we'd also made a new friend.
Thoroughly recommend it!

David Simpson Dec 2022

It was a great experience, i took my girlfriend as a birthday surprise. It is on a small boat but that makes the experience more intimate.
Tere was very friendly and patient as we arrived a bit late due to rail strikes which she was fine with and even helped us back to the tube station at the end. She has a very friendly cat as well with is adorable.
Would highly recommend!

I had a great time making churros with Tere. 2 hours flew by with great conversation and hands on churro making. Highly recommend for anyone who wants a uniquely delicious experience.

Telisa Chen Oct 2022

Tere is great - we would go just to hang out with her! Fun day. Fun experience — never made churros on a boat before. It wasn’t what we had expected but we still had a great day.

Aidan Oct 2022

Overall I had great fun frying the churros as well as experiencing a new mode of life on a boat. It was interesting to chat with Ms Tere about the Spanish culture. Everything was provided and was worth the money!

Ashley Chan Oct 2022

Really enjoyed our time here! Unique experience baking on a boat, very good churros and exposure to the spanish culture! Many of our friends were interested to attend this class now that we have showed them photos of our class

Michelle Lopes Oct 2022

Tere was a wonderful host for our Churro’s class on a boat experience. It was awesome to learn about living on the boat and then of course the art of making churros! To top it off it was the best churros I have ever tasted. A memory so special and so unique ✨❤️

Amar Shah Sep 2022

Great fun and unique experience. Welcoming host and engaged with kids well. Very helpful with directions etc as well as the experience

Meg Bell Sep 2022

Went as a surprise with my girlfriend as we like to try new things. It was a great experience - Tere is a lovely host and there is a lovely, calm atmosphere as the Churro making is combined with great conversation and fun facts!
Would definitely recommend to those that want to try something new, are passionate about food or want something tasty to eat!

What makes a churro a good churro? A warm and tender smile, a 120-year old dutch boat, a beautiful fluffy cat named Tippi, an exceptionally gifted barcelonian churrera and a very generous chocolate sauce to the delight of everyone. You’ll be back home with unequalled memories and an even sweeter tooth

Suzy Urch May 2022

My sister, mum and I had a lovely time learning how to make churros with Tere on her adorable boat with her very cute cat, Tippi!
Tere is very friendly and it was a great opportunity to ask her all about life living on a boat in the centre of London! She also took lots of pictures and sent us the recipe afterwards.
It was easy to get to and there are adequate facilities on site.
And of course, the churros were delicious

Aron Schleider Mar 2022

I’m sure you could make Churros anywhere, but you won’t enjoy making them a much as you will with Tere. The boat, the banter the benevolent attention to detail, there was a lot to love. It was a really fun and authentic experience

Ella Gardiner Mar 2022

What a unique experience! Tere is a wonderful person and it was a delight to meet her! The churros and chocolate are quick and such fun to make let alone delicious. The setting of being in a marina on a 100 year old boat is a dream! Highly recommend this class it’s churrowesome!

Baking and Desserts class review by Ella Gardiner - London

Mae Wilson Feb 2022

I booked the class for my 7-year old granddaughter as a treat for her during the school holidays. Tere, the teacher could not have looked after us better – she is an inspiration. I did not appreciate, however, that this was more of demonstration class rather than hands on. My granddaughter did get to do some mixing and stirring – and of course enjoy the delicious churros and hot chocolate. I paid £120 for two participants which I believe was excessive given that I observed (but did also enjoy some churros and hot chocolate). It seems an excessive amount for preparing a pretty inexpensive bowl of churros and two cups of hot chocolate – even if they were delicious!

Teacher's response

Dear Geoffrey,
Thanks so much for taking the time to provide this review and it was a pleasure to meet you and your little granddaughter Mae, she is a delight! However, I must point out that my class is not described as a fully blown/hands on cookery class and does mention that due to my unusual setting, i.e. a cute houseboat, I cannot provide the facilities that a cookery school would be able to, such as each student having their own oven and deep fryer etc. I do believe that I make this very clear and in fact, my location and what I provide is my unique selling point.

Unlike a commercial cookery school, I accept only small groups and I am happy to offer my class to just one person if they wish to book. Essentially my classes are private classes and my guests get 100% my attention and hospitality, unlike a commercial cookery school. This is made very clear in my online description.

Aside from this, I accepted you bringing your granddaughter but the very idea of a 7 year old getting anywhere near 300 degrees oil to fry the churros is crazy. I take hygiene and safety very seriously and for this reason I was careful to watch Mae and allow her to help only at appropriate times, such as piping the churro dough and stirring the hot chocolate. Once again, this is mentioned in my online description and I also explain this in person before my class begins. I would gain nothing from misleading my guests and for this reason I make sure all the details are correct and am happy to answer inquiries prior to booking if there are any queries.

Regarding the price, I believe this is fair for a private class in a unique setting that cannot be accessed without me. I provide a very personalised experience that is about making memories for my guests as well as myself and I pride myself on this. This is why I take photos during the class and send them to my guests afterwards as a souvenir along with the recipe. Due to my Spanish heritage I am also qualified to discuss the culture of churros in Spain and the various recipes that can be used. I look forward to welcoming future guests on board my little boat soon! :)

Liz Sparrow Feb 2022

We had a great time with Tere.

Tere is such an amazing and inspiring lady! I really liked her energy when I was there. Also the churros were great would love to go back again!

Nick Gilbert Nov 2021

My partner and I had a really great time with Tere. The setting is so unique onboard a wonderfully decked out canal boat, complete with beautiful art and and even more gorgeous ragdoll cat. Having previously lived in Spain and feeling nostalgic due to Covid, I can honestly say the churros were some of the best I’ve ever had. Memorable evening and would 100% recommend.

Tom Harrigan Oct 2021

Tere is an amazing host, warm, friendly and welcoming.

With an obvious passion to pass on her knowledge; Tere’s teaching style and pace was just perfect for us. We both loved the quirkiness of her & Collins floating home - cozy and comforting just like the yummy churros we made, and there was plenty of them.

This wasn’t just a cooking lesson for us, this was a brilliant experience and memory - highly recommend!

Baking and Desserts class review by Tom Harrigan - London

Thomas Doyle Oct 2021

I went with my girlfriend as a surprise trip - we had an amazing time. Tere was so welcoming and lovely to speak to - I really enjoyed finding out more about living in a marina as much as I did learning to make churros. I would highly recommend to anyone as a different, unique way to spend an evening with a partner.

Gaziz Zhotabayev Sep 2021

Tere was great - very upbeat and enthusiastic. It was really interesting seeing what life on a boat is like (I'd never considered it before). The churros were delicious as well!

Margaux Moro Sep 2021

The experience was really fantastic!
Tere picked me up at the foot of the metro to take me on her boat. We then started to cook the Churros while chatting Then it was time for the tasting.
I recommend 100%, it was a great experience and Tere and Colin are very welcoming. It was a real pleasure to talk with her for two hours.
