Well, that is a mouthful, but I am excited! I have a gorgeous new and central venue for my cooking classes, the kitchen in the beautiful Hampstead Theatre, a stones throw from Swiss Cottage on the Jubilee Line. It is a large industrial kitchen with plenty of space for us to mooch around and cook in.

I will be running the classes over 3 Saturdays, with Christmas Gift Making Classes in the morning, and Bacon Masterclasses in the afternoon (which actually could be described as a very bacon-y Christmas gift class too). All classes will be for 3 hours and there will be a maximum of 14 students per class. As always, the classes are hands on and everyone does everything. So that you can go home confident that you can recreate everything again.

The dates are: Saturday 24th Nov, Saturday 1st Dec, Saturday 8th Dec

Christmas Gift Making Class

Morning, 10am – 1pm, £75

A hands on cooking class teaching students how to make lovely Christmas food gifts, from scratch, including:

Vanilla Marshmallow – made from scratch and irresistible, easy when you know how too
Luxurious Chocolate Truffles (with flavours of your choice incl chilli, rose, pistachio)
Proper Homemade Fudge – from scratch, no shortcuts, an alchemy of butter, milk, sugar and vanilla – you can make vanilla salted fudge or plain vanilla fudge*
Honeycomb – from scratch and perfect for the top of chocolate mousse, to mix with your butter for pancakes for Christmas breakfasts, or simply dipped in chocolate for a treat

  • if you have already attended a Bacon Masterclass and can now make fudge as a result, I can substitute Turkish Delight for fudge for you :)

Bacon Masterclass

Afternoon, 2pm – 5pm, £75

The bacon masterclass is back! By popular demand. With new recipes too. In this class we will be making:

Bacon Jam – better than any you have tasted with only the best ingredients. Chipotle fuelled, smoky and sticky.
Candied Bacon – crisp and addictive, most students eat all of this before they even leave the class
Bacon Jam Fudge – it takes time but it is fantastic, and it is amazing with a single malt
Bourbon Bacon Brownie – perfect Christmas tea time snack, isn’t it?

To book, please email me the class and date preference at niamh at eatlikeagirl dot com
