Venue: Wherever you are in the world!
Join Howard Middleton (GBBO, series 4) live from Sheffield who will teach you the skills to make his delicious Swiss meringue chocolate tartlets!
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 & bake along as you watch Howard demonstrate all the skills required to make this lovely treat.
Our class will take around 90 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.
