Half Day Savoury Pastry

HALF DAY COURSE (9:30am - 12:00pm / 2:00pm - 4:30pm)

Only £65.00 per person inc. VAT


Under the expert guidance of our chefs you’ll be making two pastries: light, crumbly savoury shortcrust and rich, buttery rough puff.


We’ll show you how to make both by hand, but also with tips on making shortcrust in a food processor (for those of you with who have hot hands or are short on time).


Once made, you’ll make a pasty with the shortcrust and sausage rolls with the puff.


At the end of the course you’ll leave with a cooked pasty as well as some sausage rolls to finish off in the oven at home.

  • Rubbing in (getting butter and flour to the ‘breadcrumb’ stage)
