Ian's Lemon Meringue Tart
Time & Location
About the Event
Join the brilliant Ian Cumming (GBBO, series 6) live from Cambridge who will teach you the art of baking the ultimate lemon meringue tart. In this class you'll bake your own sweet shortcrust pastry, filled with a thick lemony layer and topped with delicately piped Swiss meringue. It's sure to be delicious!
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. Our class will take around 2 hours 30 minutes 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.
