    What's been going on at Squires Kitchen's International School

    Squires Kitchen’s baking school has been open for two months now and it’s great to hear that it has your seal of approval. The smell of baking, chocolate and cakes has been wafting round the building and it’s been lovely to meet students who have enjoyed the classes so much, leaving with new skills to try out on their friends and family. Recent classes at the new baking school included Cookbook Baking Classics where students came to learn how to make traditional cakes from scratch such as Victoria sponge, gooey chocolate cake and spicy sticky gingerbread, just like grandma used to make. Make sure you book early for the next one on 13th January. Perfect Pastry is another new addition to the course list and the first class proved popular with students coming to learn the skills and techniques involved in making shortcrust pastry, sweet flan pastry and choux. Ann Skipp also shared her top tips for baking blind, resting times and how to achieve great results every time. The next Perfect Pastry course is on 11th Dec, just in time for festive entertaining! Take home your creations and freeze them for Christmas. Mark Tilling’s chocolate classes have also been very popular, with our 3 Day Chocolate Wedding Cake Course being the first of its kind to be held in the new school room. Students who attended this course made some truly stunning creations under Mark’s professional guidance. If you missed out this time then make sure you book for the next 3 Day Chocolate Wedding Cake Course being held on 26th–28th January and 29th- 30th March 2011

    Carlos Lischetti's first class at Squires Kitchen's International School

    This week, we ran our first class with the incredibly talented sugarcrafter and pastry chef Carlos Lischetti. Carlos shared his flawless sugar modelling skills with students who came along to learn how to recreate his style on their own cakes and models. The class sold out quickly and was a huge success with students learning how to make a toy soldier from developing concepts on paper to building a figure from sugar, step-by-step. If you missed out, then you’ll be pleased to know that Carlos will be holding another class next February. To register your interest early, simply email Claudia.Amblianitis@squires-group.co.uk and we’ll also keep you updated in future school newsletters.
