French Country Baking

Enjoy a gastromic field trip as Eric is your guide to a selection of delicious specialities from his native France.

French Country Baking

Our first destination is Brittany, with the classic kouign-amann, followed by a visit to Lamotte-Beuvron, Loir-et-Cher (169km south of Paris!) for the legendary apple Tarte Tatin. We end the day deep in the heart of provence with a lemon verbena Provençal loaf cake.


Sharing his extensive knowledge, Eric takes students on a whirlwind course in the art of patisserie.


Learn to bake chocolate and tonka bean eclairs and a gianduja and passion fruit entremet decorated with mirror glaze. Your challenges include a middle-eastern twist to the classic Parisian treat Les Financier... with pistachio and Persian rose.


Budding Patissiers will enjoy this cacao–fuelled adventure, featuring some of the world's finest chocolate.


Students are challenged to create a Peruvian inspired entremet of dark chocolate and yuzu decorated with mirror glaze, a fragrant West Indies tart with gruet nougatine and the deliciously decadent double-chocolate bundt cake.


As Summer draws to a close and the leaves turn gold, join Eric on his autumnal baking trail.


With expert guidance, students create new-style modern pumpkin and caramel baked cheesecakes and an apple and maple syrup cake. Finally, capture the essence of autum with a comforting ale fruit loaf.


Enjoy a zesty baking extravaganza featuring perfect creations for a summer’s day...


Eric shares his legendary Tarte au Citron recipe, passed on by his mentor, the late Chef Albert Roux.

Create new-style individual passion fruit cheesecakes and an exquisite pistachio loaf cake.


Join us at the most wonderful time of the year for this very festive baking masterclass.


Students are challenged to create a flamboyant non–traditional chocolate Christmas cake, a new-style chocolate and passion fruit hazelnut yule log and a spiced Norwegian cranberry bundt cake. Joyeux Noël!
