About the Event

Join the brilliant Mark Lutton (GBBO, series 11) live from Liverpool who will teach you the skills you need to become a master of warqa pastries making both Mini Chicken (or chickpea!) Pastillas as well as his delicious Walnut, Pistachio and Apple Parcels!

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

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 Mark.

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.
