Took my mum here as a treat and we had a good time! The teacher was super friendly and bubbly and made us feel comfortable. I learnt how to make macaroons and with the help of the teacher it was really easy!

I went with my flatmates, Olly and Craig, on a Sunday morning and Jojo, our teacher, could not have been more incredible. She was incredibly kind, patient and conversational, and the baking process itself was easy and fun. You get plenty of help to make sure you know what you're doing, but also plenty of time to figure things out for yourself and add personalized touches. Totally worth the experience and we will certainly be back for another class! Thrilled to have beautiful and tasty macaraons at the end as well x

Jojo hosted us for a session making French Macarons, she was a brilliant host and guide and reqlly pleasant personality to add to our group vibe and dynamic. I highly highly recommend this session (even if only for the recipe at the end), but the session itself Is brilliant for building group camaraderie. The hours fly by and you leave feeling accomplished. Faultless.

I decided to book this session to do something different with my husband and also because we love gyoza. The experience was so great and we had fun learning how to make them. Lola was very nice and patient. We will definitely book another class. Thank you ????

Jojo was super friendly/knowledgeable and we learnt all the important points about truffle making in our session! Me and my husband now have lots of delicious truffles to eat to celebrate our anniversary :)

Not only the workshop was explained easily and with real knowledge, but the enthusiasm and happiness during the entire time of the workshop left a smile on my face that will last the entire day.

Thanks Jojo

I would highly recommend this class. It was really fun, the team were great. The pizza was very tasty too.

Joe Phillips Feb 2024

Our class was a perfect size (6 people) and Jojo taught us her own recipe that make macarons achievable, even for someone like me. Takes a lot of the faff out of the process and you still get great results and a lot of macarons to take home with you.
Thanks Jojo!

JoJo had lots of great tips for making macarons well and was warm and welcoming. I really enjoyed it.

The teacher is very terrible at explaining the steps and the whole lesson just feels so messy. For example: we didn’t have enough buttercream and the teacher have to make some extra (which turns out very runny, grainy and unevenly mixed). Also, the lesson states that it’s from 11am to 2pm but when it’s 1:30pm the teacher is already rushing us to finish packing and leave, just because she have next class at 2:30). And when she’s taking out our macaroons, she try to slide the baking paper onto the table but it’s unsuccessful and flips the macaroons over and crushed them.
This lesson is just overall messy and unprofessional and have lots of improve
