Pastry Skills

3 Jul
10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Type of Course:

Saturday 3rd July

We call it our Cookery Spa Day – a bit of ‘you time’ to learn some new skills whilst you spend a day preparing some of our favourite dishes while getting to grips with the wonders of different types of pastry.

What you’ll be making and learning…….

Roquefort, apple and caramelised onion chutney tart

Rough puff pastry and working with laminated pastry

Quiche Lorraine

Rich shortcrust pastry, lining tins, blind baking

Aj’s Classic lemon tart

Sweet pastries, blind baking, the perfectly set lemon tart

Millionaires eclairs

Working with choux pastry and making delicious toppings and fillings. 


Plus, after all that hard work, a bottle of wine to take home from St Austell Brewery to wash it all down.



How the day goes….

Arrive at 10am for Aj’s famous breakfast before donning your apron and gathering around our large teaching island. Your cookery teacher will then demonstrate the first dish of the day, with overhead cameras capturing the finer details. Then it’s time for some hands-on cooking, as you head to your fully equipped cooking bay where trays of pre-prepared ingredients will be waiting. Cooking will commence, with your teacher pausing the class at convenient times to demonstrate a new technique, or the next dish.

At around 3:30pm we will pop open a bottle of bubbles whilst we show you how to plate and finish the final dishes.

Drinks and snacks are provided throughout the day as well as aprons, tea towels and recipe cards. We also provide takeaway boxes, however, please feel free to help us reduce packaging waste by bringing your own reusable containers.

Due to government social distancing guidelines at Truro School Cookery all events are limited to 5 people.
