Master one of the most difficult baking techniques – right in your very own kitchen!
Leavened Puff Pastry is an informative and comprehensive online baking course where you will learn everything you need to know to make your own leavened puff pastry (also known as pâte feuilletée) – all from your very own kitchen.
Leavened puff is possibly one of the hardest of all baking techniques to master and is often referred to as the 'Holy Grail' in the world of pastry. With Anneka Manning as your guide, learning how to make this crisp, buttery, flaky pastry – alongside a bunch of other enthusiastic bakers – will be a joy and something to value for the rest of your baking life. From Croissants and Danish Pastries, to Pain au Chocolat and Kouign Amann, these divine pastries will become part of your baking repertoire!
Anneka will share her more than 30 years of baking experience, knowledge and research, as well as all of her practical and insightful tips and tricks.
The course includes a 3-hour masterclass pre-recorded video (which was recorded as a Live Session earlier this year), which enables you to take part in this course entirely in your own time. Not only does the video include full step-by-step instructions for making Croissants but you will have the ability to bake along when it suits you and have access to all the questions that were answered during the session. The virtual masterclass is supported by printable recipes and resources that you can study at your own pace.
At the end of this course, you will have not only the knowledge and skill but the confidence to be able to make your own leavened puff pastry and a collection of wonderful bakes to create with it!
Please note: The video included in this course is a pre-recorded 3-hour video of a Live Session that took place earlier this year.

"I enjoyed the course very much and appreciated Anneka's personal interactions with us individually and a group. I particularly enjoyed the interaction in the closed Facebook group. It was really invaluable to see what others were baking and their strengths and weaknesses, and their mistakes as well. I learnt a lot from that aspect. My other favourite part of the course was Anneka's in-depth feedback and guidance to each participant's activity; and her generosity with imparting her knowledge and technical expertise; and her encouragement." – Trisha, online class student
