About the Event

Join Howard Middleton (GBBO, series 4) live from Sheffield who will guide you through his recipe for delicious Dacquoise. A typically French dessert, a dacquoise is a beautifully sweet treat made from layers of hazelnut meringue. Howard's recipe includes a creme diplomat between the layers, and is decorated with piped chocolate and raspberries.

This class takes place on Saturday 15th April at the following times:

9am PT / 11am CT / 12pm ET / 5pm UK GMT

We’ll start off the class with an introductory welcome and some background from Howard's time on TV, before we ask you to put on our aprons & bake along as you watch Howard demonstrate all the skills required to make this lovely 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 Howard. 

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. 

All guests will be emailed a link to the class following their booking. Please note our classes are very much interactive and are limited to around 25 participants. Howard will ensure he gives you feedback as we go whilst everyone will be encouraged to ask questions.
