Testimonial from French Patisserie Class

“Victoria was excellent and explained everything clearly and answered our questions – she’s obviously very experienced and knowledgeable and gave lots of tips. The pace was good and the time flew by. A very enjoyable day”

I met Victoria by complete chance at The Chef’s Forum – the leading foodservice marketing platform, as well as networking group; from sourcing the latest equipment to head hunting talent,  it’s a place for chefs to communicate, share ideas and keep a finger on the pulse of the latest trends in hospitality.

We both attended a networking lunch in January 2022 with little nervousness, it’s often daunting to walk into a place alone but we need not have worried, we started chatting and didn’t stop all afternoon! Long story short, we needed a chef to run our baking classes and Victoria was looking for a cookery school to teach at – match made in heaven.

Victoria is now a regular chef at Food Sorcery and has delighted guests with her enthusiasm and passion for all things baking.
