Win a place on Creative Cake Decorating: Chocolate Mirror Glaze course
With a group of cafes and bakeries across Suffolk and Norfolk, Two Magpies Bakery is now turning its attention to its popular baking school with the launch of a range of new classes and the appointment of Emma Crowhurst.
Two Magpies owner and founder, Rebecca Bishop, will continue to teach all the bread based classes at the school. However, the introduction of a range of new courses has seen the appointment of Emma Crowhurst, a well-known local cookery teacher and food writer, who will be taking the cake, supper and gift classes.
“We are very excited to introduce Emma to the Two Magpies family,” explains Rebecca. “Emma used to teach at Leith’s School of Food and Wine in London and really knows her stuff when it comes to cooking and baking. She will be a huge asset to the team and her appointment allows me to concentrate on the bread making classes, while providing our customers with a broader range of culinary experiences.”
The Two Magpies Bake School is situated adjacent to the Two Magpies Darsham Cafe and is the ideal place to experience artisan baking first-hand. Whether a beginner looking to gain more confidence or an experienced baker wanting to add some new skills, the Bake School offers everything from sourdough bread baking and cake making classes, to cake decorating skills. All the courses are taught in a relaxed and informal environment with a focus on demystifying baking techniques, experimenting and applying lessons learnt to the home environment.
New classes now available include macarons, afternoon tea, seasonal suppers and contemporary cake decorating with mirror glaze, ganache and buttercream. “We are excited to be able to expand our portfolio of classes to appeal to a wider range of bakers looking to perfect skills or learn new ones,” adds Rebecca.
Classes can be booked through the Two Magpies website www.twomagpiesbakery.co.uk
