Perfect for all year round occasions! They sound fiddly
and are expensive to buy but you could so easily make
your own. I have lots of great ideas for easy bites –
smart and sophisticated if you wish – quick and easy
if you prefer! Spend a few hours making your chosen
selection with me and take home your own party platter.
We will end with a brief tasting and a quick chat about party drinks.

 Glamorous Desserts

Finish your menu with a luscious and elegant pud

SKILL LEVEL : EASY
COURSE LENGTH : HALF OR FULL DAYtoprt2
COURSE PRICE : £70.00 - £95.00
DATES: Oct 25th

This is the time to be as creative as you like and add
a bit of glamour to the occasion. Puddings, whether
hot or cold, should not be passed off as just something
before the cheese - they are treats for all to enjoy!

The end of a dinner or special meal can be the perfect time to show off your creative
flair and leave your guests with happy memories and clamouring for your recipes!
 Also many desserts can be made in advance giving you more time to prepare and
get the perfect results.  This course will look at the art of gorgeous and gooey
meringues or Pavlovas; light and fluffy soufflés or mousses; flaky pastry layers;
sticky chocolate puddings and many seasonal treats.
