About the Event

Join the brilliant Dan Beasley Harling (GBBO, series 9) live from London Dan will teach you the skills you need to nail his beautiful Buche De Noel. You can join the class and then make it at your own Christmas Dinner to impress your guests!

This Bûche de Noël is a traditional French Christmas cake, decorated to look like a fallen log in winter. In this class you’ll learn how to make a decadent caramel sauce, a creamy Swiss meringue buttercream, and these charming meringue mushrooms. The decoration may look impressive, but it’s surprisingly simple to make - let Dan show you how!

The class starts at 8pm UK on Sunday 19th December 2021 and all you need is access to Zoom via a computer, an iPad or a phone and you'll be connected! We’ll start off the class with an introductory welcome and some background from Dan's time on TV, before we ask you to put on your aprons & bake along as you watch Dan demonstrate all the skills required to make this favourite treat. Our class will take around 2 hours as we bake our masterpieces, before you can tuck into the fruits of your labour all whilst hearing fantastic memories and stories from Dan.

Tickets are priced at £35 for individuals and £50 for groups of two or more that will join from the same household. Places are non-refundable and cannot be cancelled or altered after purchase.
