Granola Grownups Cookies

I’m sure some of you will have made a recipe from a book, magazine or found one online and after working away at it found it didn’t quite work out how the picture looked.

I think It’s awful that this happens.  It puts people off cooking or baking and makes them think they’ve done something wrong.  I suppose that’s why there are so many recipe books etc. out there. We’re all searching for those truly amazing recipes that work.

Warning, rant coming up

A Bit More Than Bake Club

You must be wondering why you haven’t been seeing our usual photo’s on our Facebook pages for a while. Well, it’s because we’ve been doing things a little differently at Bake Club this term.

Because most of the girls have been coming for around 4 years, I’ve had the opportunity to notice techniques that cause them problems. So this term we dealt with them. Continue reading “A Bit More Than Bake Club”

What Happened At Our First Food Swap Event at Bec’s Table

Well, what happened at our first food swap?  

Some of you have been asking about our food swap event, so here it is.  It was brilliant.  

Those involved not only shared their yummy treats but shared the recipes too.  We all handed in a selection of items you’d pay around $5 for at a Farmers Market.  How this worked was fun.  I made up some monopoly type money (Bec’s Table Bucks) and gave a $5 Bec’s Buck for every item brought.   Continue reading “What Happened At Our First Food Swap Event at Bec’s Table”

Amazing Cakes from Bec’s Table Bake Club

New Free Food Swap Event At Bec’s Table

How about a Free Food Swap Event?

I’m always looking for ways to give back to my wonderful students at the cooking school.  Without you, I wouldn’t be here.  

Therefore I’m looking for expressions of interest.  I want to hold a Food Swap Event at the cooking school.

I can only offer entry to people who have done a class at the cooking school at the moment.   Our open days can draw a crowd of up to 200 people, and this is more than we’ll be able to handle for a food swap event, especially the first one. Continue reading “New Free Food Swap Event At Bec’s Table”
