About the Event

Join the brilliant Karen Wright (GBBO Star, series 9) live from Wakefield, UK for her Burns Night class. Burns Night is a celebration of the life and poetry of Robert Burns, the famous Scottish poet. Burns night is the 25th of January the poet's birthday. The celebration is usually a feast consisting of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties all washed down with drams of Whisky. Neeps is an abbreviation of Turnip and Tatties are potatoes. When I was in Scotland recently, I spotted some vegetarian Haggis in a butcher's window, intrigued I bought some and studied the ingredients list. I based this recipe on that list but added neeps and tatties and my mix of seasonings and of course a splash of whisky too. Dried orange slices and lavender adorn my wreath here, but dried thistles would look beautiful to and maybe a tartan tablecloth.

The class starts at 8pm UK on Saturday 15th January 2022.

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

Our class will take around 2hours as we bake our masterpieces, before you can tuck into the fruits of your labour all whilst hearing fantastic memories and stories from Karen.

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 classes are subject to a minimum number of six attendees signing up. If the minimum number is not met, we will inform those who have purchased a place no later than 48 hours before the class, and will arrange a full refund. All guests will be emailed a link to the class following their booking.
