If like so many of us you have been glued to nearly every series of the BBC’s ‘The Great British Bake off,’ you would have probably realised by now just how difficult it is to create that perfect bake. It’s incredible all the things you need to know – baking really is chemistry, and clearly so much more than just being accurate with the ingredients.
So it’s hardly surprising that so many of us struggle when it comes to baking, however if you want to improve your baking skills there’s an amazing array of baking courses available across Essex, here are our favorite picks:
They offer three types of courses starting from £95 per person - a beginners course, where you can learn how to master the art of baking bread, the Master Course expands on your skills from the first course and their Professional Baking course is aimed at professional chefs looking to improve their bread baking skills
