About the Event

Join Howard Middleton (GBBO, series 4) live from Sheffield who will teach you the skills you need to master his delicious Empandads with two delectable Dips. 

This class takes place on Saturday 23rd September at the following times:

9am PT / 11am CT / 12pm ET / 5pm BST

Please allow up to 2 hours for this class.

Turn up the heat as Howard shows you how to bake a batch of his deliciously spicy empanadas. With options for a meat or veggie filling, encased in crisp, golden pastry, they're sure to get your taste buds tingling. Served with a zingy tomato salsa and a cooling sour cream dip, they're pretty irresistible!

Bake With A Legend Online Classes are an interactive experience, where we limit group sizes to around 25 to ensure an intimate online setting. Not only do you have your celebrity baker teaching you, but you also have one of our brilliant Bake With A Legend hosts who will ensure the smooth running of your experience ensuring everyone is enjoying themselves.

If you need any help at any point during the class, you’ll be encouraged to raise your hand and your baker will be virtually joining you in your own kitchen in no time to assist you!

You’ll bake along in tandem with Howard, learning many tips and tricks a long the way as you perfect all the skills required to make Howard's deliciously spicy Empanadas. Howard will also be on hand to answer your questions, be those about baking or his experiences of being involved on such an iconic television show.
