Canapés, turkey, pigs in blankets, stuffing, veg, potatoes, mince pies, yule logs, the list goes on. In the words of Greg Wallace 'cooking doesn't get tougher than this!' It's 25th December, the children are up at the crack of dawn opening their presents and you're contemplating whether to peel the potatoes or not. For many of us Christmas Day is spent in the kitchen, worrying about whether the turkey will be cooked in time. If only there was a way to alleviate this festive stress, I hear you say. L'atelier des Chefs, one of the most popular cookery schools in Britain, could help to do just that. With Christmas fast approaching, L'atelier des Chefs is taking bookings for its Gourmet Christmas Masterclass and Christmas Baking Classes this November and December. Whether you're a complete novice, or looking to touch up on your culinary expertise, L'atelier's cookery schools located in Oxford Circus and St Paul's can provide you with all the top cooking tips and tricks- turning those cooking fears into Christmas cheer!
Whether you're in charge of bringing the starter or dessert to the Christmas party, or responsible for producing the entirety of the Christmas dinner, L'atelier des Chefs has a masterclass to serve everyone's cooking needs over the course of the festive period.
Christmas Baking Classes
From Christmas gingerbread spiced macaroons, to yule logs, minced pies and Christmas doughnuts with a mulled wine plum compote, L'atelier's Christmas baking classes are there to help you sweeten your guests this festive season! At £78 per person, these two and a half hour baking sessions are designed to boost your confidence with the rolling pin and inspire your very own Christmas creations.

On Saturday 2nd December at 1.30pm, L'atelier's cooking school in Oxford Circus will be hosting a four hour Christmas Gourmet Masterclass. With the professional expertise of Chef Neal to hand, this session will open your eyes to alternative festive dishes- from coarse foie gras and chicken liver pate, to pancetta wrapped partridge with a sage and onion stuffing. The class is also designed to help you put a twist on those traditional British festive favourites- with an element of disguise in a brussel sprout recipe that may just be able to win over your children!
