How long do your courses last?

This depends on which course you attend. Generally speaking, a crepe course will last 3-4h, waffles 1-2h, Coffee, 1.30h, Milkshakes 1.30h. All the courses are contained within 1 day. For course ‘bundles’, open each bundle below separately to find out how long your course will last. Also, starting time is always 9am so make sure you make the necessary arrangements to stay around here the night before if needed.

What is the course like? What do we learn?

All of our training workshops are ‘hands-on’ courses & include theoretical & practical modules, Q&A sessions, recipe & menu suggestions, margin & cost calculations, plus advice on equipment & supplies. They also include invaluable knowledge on portion control, health & safety, food hygiene & of course what training day would be complete without trying out all of your wonderful creations?

Can I make my own mix during the course?

No. We are Mix Distributors before anything else. So you will be making our own mixes throughout the day.

Do I need to book in advance?

Booking is essential as demand is always high. Make sure you book your space early to avoid disappointment!

Do you provide lunch?

Yes we do. And god do we eat well. In fact, trainees usually cook their OWN lunch with whatever skills they’ve learnt. more often than not, we improvise with whatever we have in the studio (spinach, eggs, mushrooms, ham, cheese, chicken, turkey, or else!), and we also get to finish with a dessert crepe or waffle, depending on preferences! So fear not, you’ll be well fed over here!

Do you provide us with a certificate?

Yes we do! And you’ll be able to proudly display it in your own shop!

Are you sure I can learn everything within a day?

Yes. You will have to practice a lot more obviously, but our aim is to provide you with the best basics ever. And you will not pass the door unless you are very good, trust us!
