About the Event

Join the brilliant Jane Beedle (GBBO finalist from series 7) live from Kent, UK who will guide you through baking the fifth of our GBBO Mystery classes from 2023's Bake Off, where we will teach you the signature from week 5 of this year's show: Individual Picnic Pies.

You'll be making 12 hot water crust pastry mini pies with a juicy chicken, creamy spinach & spicy chorizo filling, and to accopany the pies, Jane will show you how to make her perfect crunchy veg-packed pickle. 

The class is on Sunday 29th October at the following times:

10am PT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET / 5pm UK GMT

*Please note the time difference is due to the end of British Summer Time*

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

Our class will take around two hours as we bake our masterpieces, before you can tuck into the fruits of your labour all whilst hearing fantastic memories and stories from Jane, 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.
