Spent the most wonderful day at The Real Macaron Company learning how to make an assortment of fabulous afternoon tea treats including Macarons. Gaye and Rachel were friendly teachers with great advice and top tips. Came home with a whole bounty of goodies. Highly recommend both the cakes and classes. – MH

We did Patisserie Show Stoppers, Rachel was a fab teacher and we had such a fun time. We do a lot of baking but have learn new skills we can’t wait to try out at home. The course was easy to follow and would be fun for an experienced cook wanting to learn something new as we were or someone new as Rachel made things very simple but fun and interesting. We will be signing up to lots of new classes in the new year – GD

Rachel ran an excellent 1:1 class for our daughter. The class was informative and fun and extremely well organised. H thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and the results were delicious as well! I would highly recommend Rachel’s classes and we will be booking again in the future! – BL

Dear Sophie and Rachel, Thank you both so much for making the evening that A and M attended on Friday so inspirational and fun for them both. They came home totally enthused, A has already bought digital scales, and other bits and pieces. They made some eclairs with the raspberry icing yesterday, they were delicious. – JH

Thank you for a lovely afternoon bread making, I really enjoyed developing my skills and loved tasting the results. Thanks again – TW

Thanks again for a fun day. Everyone really enjoyed it – RG

Many thanks for the baking class at the weekend. We have such good fun baking with you. And I’ve eaten far too much bread these last few days – DM

We really enjoyed the class, you’re a very good teacher, funny, laid back but super professional. Please let me know if you’re organising more workshops, I’d be delighted to attend them! – SFP

Rachel you are an awesome teacher! It was a relaxed fun class during which I learned so much and made some awesome patisseries! – NL

A huge thank you to Rachel who did a fantastic job of teaching me how to make naan bread and white chocolate chip brownies over the past few weeks! Given we are currently in lockdown she taught both recipes to me virtually and she did very well in guiding me through the recipes so clearly! I have wanted to get into more baking and cooking for a while and Rachel has provided the perfect opportunity for me to do so! Thank you for being so encouraging and patient- you have helped me realise how fun and rewarding cooking can be! – RV
