Keen to make dessert like a Master Chef? Then head along to Patisse on Danks St, Waterloo, where you can learn the art of pastry from the industry's finest.
Vincent Gadan, a highly regarded pastry chef with over 25 years of experience, runs a cooking class every Tuesday. Classes are an ideal way to learn the basics of baking and with a glass of champagne on arrival and the opportunity to take home the treats you create, who wouldn't want to participate? A very hands on and practical class, a lesson with Patisse will leave your friends most impressed with your skills next dinner party.
If you'd rather just indulge in the treats, then lucky for you as it also serves as a patisserie. A little slice of Paris in Waterloo, it will leave you salivating and in a flurry of difficult decision-making. Carré Framboise or Nougatine Macaron? Salted Caramel Éclair or Poached Pear Tart? Upon tasting, you will definitely be eager to learn how to recreate these! High tea is available, so is catering and they also do wedding and celebration cakes.
Pop in for a nice coffee or a great lunch and afterwards explore the area, which is becoming a hub of design and good living.
