Online Courses

Festive Preserves and Baking December 2023

At this time of year I used to teach Edible Gifts courses which are some of my most popular as they include festive preserves and baking. Since lockdown in March  2020, I’ve watched a number of online cookery courses. My attention often jumps between what the tutor is saying, to the cookery, and writing my own notes. Frequently I wish for recordings of the courses to check my understanding. With that in mind, the videos created for this course focus on the process involved and you will see little of me and you can have access to the videos for twelve months.

On booking you will receive email confirmation with your access details.

If you have any difficulty checking out, please email me a note of what you would like to book, to and I will send you an Invoice which will be easy to pay.  

I will also be happy to answer general questions about the course via email:
