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.

We had an amazing afternoon learning how to make macarons. Valeria was very informative, patient and we really got a lot out of the lesson and made some very pretty macarons. Her kitchen is lovely and she taught us some very useful new skills and gave us lots of tips! Definitely keen to book another lesson with her. Thank you Valeria!
