About the Event

Join the brilliant Jane Beedle (GBBO Finalist from series 7) live from Kent, UK who will teach you to bake her amazing Mantou Steamed Buns and Fortune Cookies.

This class takes place on Sunday 22nd January 2023 at the following times:

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

Please allow up to 2 hours for this class.

Jane's version of these steamed buns will twist plain and a chocolate doughs together into beautiful rose shapes. You'll also learn how to prepare, bake and fold the classic Fortune Cookies - a fitting celebration for Chinese New Year.

Bake With A Legend Online Classes are an interactive experience, where we limit group sizes to around 20 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 Jane, learning many tips and tricks a long the way as you perfect all the skills required to make Jane's delicious take on the Chinese Steamed Buns. Jane will also be on hand to answer your questions, be those about baking or her experiences of being involved on such an iconic television show.
