Taught by the award-winning author and internationally renowned baker, Emmanuel Hadjiandreou, food lovers will create a selection of festive treats, including a German-inspired stollen and a modern twist on the traditional mince pie as well the skills to make puff pastry, marzipan and enriched doughs.
