If you're searching for new activities in London, why not master the techniques needed to make perfect pastry every time with the help of a local chef?

In this pastry class, you'll discover all the tips and tricks you need to produce the lightest homemade pastry and learn how to use it to create delicious food like profiteroles, apple pie and much more!

After a welcome snack or breakfast, depending on the time of day, you will watch a demonstration on how to make and use choux pastry and puff pastry before making your own puff pastry and shortcrust or sweet shortcrust pastry.

You'll then choose whether you would like to use your shortcrust or sweet shortcrust to make either an apple pie, vegetable quiche or Cornish pasty which you can take home to share, along with the puff pastry you have made.

In 2003 Rosalind Rathouse decided to set up her own cookery school. What makes her qualified to run a cookery school? The answer is twofold: 50 years of teaching experience plus a passion for food and cooking. This passion led to her founding Piemaker in the 80s -- a maker and supplier of wholesale pies and cakes to the likes of Harrods, Waitrose and the Orient Express.

With the decline in people passing down home cooking through the generations, in 2003 Rosalind decided to combine her enthusiasm for teaching and her love of food to open Cookery School at Little Portland Street. The lasting principles of classic, simple home cooking are embedded in the school’s ethos even today. Rosalind feels very strongly that proper teaching can enthuse even the most unconfident cook. By 2008, the school was thriving, with fully booked classes, courses and corporate events gaining in popularity, so Rosalind took on a second, much larger, kitchen in the same building.

Even before the inception of the cookery school, Rosalind has been fervently passionate about sustainability. Cookery School has the highest possible rating for sustainability from the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) and has been virtually plastic-free since the beginning. Sustainability is not just a buzzword but runs through the veins of the school, from sourcing top quality, seasonal, mostly organic ingredients, to running the kitchens on renewable energy, the school does everything possible to minimise its impact on the planet.
