Who doesn’t love a rich chocolatey sponge with a gooey chocolate middle? Or perhaps you might prefer a lovely fresh apple Tarte Tatin? If either of these tempt your taste buds then come along to this cookery session and learn how to make your own delicious desserts.

During this session you will learn more about the nutritional and cost benefits of homemade cooking, you will take home what you make and receive recipe cards for the items you have cooked so that you are ready to make these again at home.

What are you doing to keep learners safe?

The safety of our learners and staff is our top priority and we’ve made some big changes to our centres, from socially-distanced training rooms to staggered start times. Although things will look different, our staff will be as friendly and helpful as ever and we’re really excited to welcome learners back.

If you’re concerned about visiting one of our centres, please get in touch so we can discuss it with you.

What do I need to join the course?

Just an enthusiasm to learn and a willingness to have a go.

Please note that East Riding of Yorkshire Council is unable to guarantee a completely allergen free environment. If you would like more information prior to booking please contact us.

What do I need to bring with me to the first session?

Please bring an apron with you and containers with lids to take home what you make. You will also need to bring with you the following ingredients:

  • 250g dark chocolate
  • 170g unsalted butter
  • 150g all butter puff pastry
  • 3 dessert apples (about 1lb/450g), such as Braeburn, Cox’s Orange Pippin or Adam’s Pearmain.

You may wish to bring a 8inch round tin to bake your tarte tatin, however, foil tins will be provided if not.

*Please note that if you are entitled to a concession and you qualify for a free course then please talk to us as we may be able to support you with the cost of these ingredients.

What could I do next?

We run courses on how to prepare a variety of dishes, pastries, appetisers and snacks suitable for every day, seasonal and special occasions.

Your tutor will discuss our range of short courses with you, including themes such as bread, biscuits, soups, batch cooking, desserts, family cookery, speciality world cuisine, healthy eating, meals on a budget and pastry making, to name but a few. We will also cover the nutritional and financial benefits of home cooking, such as how to batch cook to fill up your freezer and use up those leftovers!
