How we teach:

Our approach is always friendly, practical and hands-on and, wherever possible, more showing than telling. This is not the place to overwhelm you with the (considerable) science, but to give you the benefit of all the know-how we’ve acquired after 12 years teaching and decades more of baking.

We spare you the fails, and share the secrets of all our successes. It’s win-win.

We also provide useful practice exercises and quizzes to test your knowledge.

The teacher is precious. The pace is great. I wish we would have had the hint to print the guides/ resources first though

Penny is the absolute best! She is adorable and thorough and incredibly helpful. My sister and I have been working through these recipes diligently and are convinced she should adopt us. Dragan and Penny have done such a great job setting this up. One tip: read the recipes and watch the videos simultaneously and take notes there is often someone you miss in one that gets filled in in the other.
