Best Baking Classes in London

Fancy getting out for a group class, or staying in for a baking class in your own kitchen? Here is our top 5 choices of baking classes in London. Turning you from micro chef to master chef in no time.

Bread ahead

Bread ahead are famous for their amazing breads and doughnuts originally from the borough market bakery. This has been open since 2000 and a standout for me ever since I moved to London in 2010 for a place to get the best doughnuts in town. In 2014 they opened a baking school which now features doughnut masterclasses at the bakeries in Borough market, Chelsea and Wembley.

At £90 for a 3 hour masterclass it is on the higher end for cooking class prices but well worth it if you are as serious as us about doughnuts.

Although not based entirely on baking it would be a shame not to mention Migrateful. They are a cooking school who offer both on and offline classes led by migrant chefs who are struggling to integrate and access employment, due to legal and linguistic barriers.
