Join Howard Middleton (GBBO, series 4) live from his kitchen in Sheffield as he leads your class through his delightful Berry and Custard Tarts recipe. 


With buttery shortcrust, creamy custard filling and the contrast of sweet berries, these mini tarts are sure to be a crowd pleaser.


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


Our class will take around an hour and fourty-five minutes as we bake our masterpieces, before you can tuck into the fruits of your labour all whilst hearing fantastic memories and stories from Howard.


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 24 hours before the class, and will arrange a full refund.
