Description

We are bringing you a baking class focused on items with a crust. In this weekend long boot camp, you’ll learn about various techniques on creating the perfect crust, working with custard and fruit fillings, and how to make different pies and tarts just in time for the Holidays. Your pies will make guests cry. Your tarts will be works of art.

Students will work in pairs, building basic skills, and adding to their competencies over the course of one weekend together. So come join us and let’s get baking. Because everything with a crust, is a MUST!

Refund Policy

Refund Policy

We understand that “life happens”, and that you may not be able to make it to class. Because we purchase food, schedule staff, and fill spaces for our classes in advance, it’s important that you let us know ASAP if you won’t be able to make it. Below is our refund policy.

Cancellations 10 or more days in advance of the first class: Full refund
Cancellations 3 to 9 days in advance of the first class: Class credit
Cancellations 2 days, the day before, or the day of the first class: No refund or credit available, but you can send a friend in your place

Make-up Classes for Series:
Once the first day of class begins, make-up classes may be available for students who miss a day provided that they inform the Student Relations Manager at least seven days prior to the absence. In order to help our students make-up exactly what they missed in their series, students can sign up to take the topic they missed during another scheduled series. To keep class sizes small we limit the total student count to be 14 per class. There are no make-up classes offered for boot camps.
