About the Event

Join the brilliant Ian Cumming (GBBO, series 6) live from Cambridge who will teach you to make this beautiful French tart featuring an enriched shortbread base, a gorgeous pistachio mousseline cream and then topped off with fresh raspberries and dainty meringue kisses.

We’ll start off the class with an introductory welcome and some background from Ian's time on TV, before we ask you to put on your aprons and bake along as you watch Ian demonstrate all the skills required to make this lovely treat on Saturday 25th June at 5pm UK time.

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 and tips throughout from Ian.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.
