BakeSchool: Shortcrust Pastry is a fun and accessible 10-day online course where you will learn the art of making your own melt-in-the-mouth pastry – all from your very own kitchen.

This course is made up of a combination of a virtual live demonstration (which will be recorded so you can watch it again or in your own time) and printable recipe and information sheets that you can study at your own pace ensuring that you gain the confidence and skill – and conquer the fear! – of baking your own delicious shortcrust at home.

Anneka Manning will guide you through the course and share her more than 30 years of baking experience, knowledge and research, as well as all of her practical and handy tips and tricks. You will also have access to a closed Facebook group where you will be able to ask Anneka any questions that arise and be able to troubleshoot while you practise your pastry baking throughout the 10-day course.

At the end of this course, you will walk away with all the knowledge, skill and confidence you need to be able to bake your own delicious shortcrust pastry at home and never rely on store-bought pastry again.

How will the course work?

The live component of this course will take place over one virtual session where Anneka will demonstrate the process of making shortcrust pastry.

This will take place at Australian Eastern Standard Time (UTC+10:00) but it will all be recorded so you can look back at it as many times as you like or watch it in your own time if you happen to miss the live session.

2. Written recipes and resources:

The live session will supported by printable recipes and resources which will take you through the process step by step so you can study and work through them at your own pace. 

3. Closed Facebook Group

An integral part of the course will be the closed Facebook group. It will be the place where you can ask Anneka any questions that come up as well as troubleshoot any issues that arise. It is also a place where you can share your experience with other like-minded bakers. This group will remain open for questions and feedback until the last day of the course but you will be able to refer back to the content for up to 6 months after the course finishes.
