This class has already taken place.


Chef Tutor, Les Rennie, has been fortunate to work in some exceptional Michelin star kitchens in the UK and USA. He has worked with some of the most fearsome chefs in the industry. Les won his first Michelin star (to name only one) at the Relais and Chateaux property (Ynyshir Hall) in 2002. He enjoys training new chefs and watching them move on to winning their own stars.

We are proud to host a complete series of pastry classes (beginner, intermediate and advanced) to support those of you who are as passionate about pastry as Les. We also hope some of you might be inspired to set-up your own Patisserie in Birmingham.
