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.

The class was fantastic. Valeria was very engaging. She clearly explained what we were doing at each step and it was obvious why everyone’s final products looked amazing. The at no point did I feel that the steps were difficult, even though Sioux pastry is notoriously tricky. Would definitely recommend for beginners like me

The teacher was so kind, humble and compassionate. So easy to approach and I really felt comfortable with her, since it was my first time baking. She communicated well, offered water and biscuits, which was scrumptious, shared the recipes, I really enjoyed and made friends and took some nice selfies and lovely tart to take along home.
I really want to thank Valeria for her hard work and effort. Much appreciated.

Excellent teacher who was extremely well organised. The setting was good and all equipment was ready. Valeria was a lovely teacher who made us all feel most welcome.I learnt a great deal about patisserie and came away with lots of practical tips to help me do choux and shortcrust pastry dishes at home. It was the best class I have taken part in- Grazie mille Valeria.

Thank you so much Valeria, this course was super informative but also very fun. We felt very comfortable and we took home a variety of delicious pastries and sweet things we made during the class.
We would definitely attend another course provided by valeria. Valeria clearly had lots of knowledge of baking from many different countries which was very intriguing for us to listen too. We travelled from
Cornwall, the address was very easy to get to. We look forward to seeing you again Valeria xxx

I did this class with my 9 year old daughter who is a keen baker. The setting is intimate and we really felt we learned lots of good general baking tips. It was easy to ask questions and get some one-to-one help with techniques. Valeria was friendly and the class was very well-organised. We had lots of goodies to take away!

Lydia Luff Oct 2022

I really enjoyed the French Patisserie class run by Valeria. Valeria is very skilled and she is a great teacher. I learnt a lot in the class and was able to ask any questions I had throughout. The class was a small group which meant everyone got to know each other over the few hours we were baking together and Valeria made us very comfortable in her home - we even sat and had tea/coffee while taste testing our bakes! I would definitely recommend this class!
