Our one day classic French dessert cooking course covers some of those timeless classics that are found in eateries across France.

At the top of the list have to be three timeless classics, mainstays of any French chef or home cook: Crème Brulee, Tarte au Citron, and Tarte Tatin. Which is great news, because they’re among our chef’s favourites too!
