Growing up in a family of French chefs, I have always been passionate about food and used my baking skills to make friends around the world (who can resist a beautiful cake made with love?).

I shifted my focus from cake to bread a few years ago and worked for a couple of months in a bakery to learn the basics. 2020 and its lockdown gave me the time to perfect my techniques using only general household equipment.

Making my own bread every week gave me so much joy and satisfaction, I now want to share my passion with everyone!

Fabulous experience. Class was well organised and well paced. Learnt so much from Marion. Loved her practical tips and positive approach. The lunch was fabulous with pancakes for dessert. The take home kit was well organised and the additional kits were great value. We baked our sourdough from the class the next day and it was amazing! Would highly recommend this class for bakers of all levels.

Marion's sourdough class was fantastic! It was well organised and structured, and the time flew by. Every bit of food was deliciousshe clearly knows her food and wines well! The class size is kept small, which means you can ask as many questions as you like, and Marion is very knowledgable and experienced. We left with full bellies, plenty of verbal and written information, and all the equipment and ingredients to get started on our own bread making at home. I'd recommend to anyone who's interested in a fun day or wanting to start sourdough baking. Thanks again, Marion!

Wayne Turner Nov 2021

Marion was fabulous! She is a great teacher knowing so much about sourdough bread making. We all had a great time, particularly eating freshly baked sourdough bread, crackers and pancakes! Lunch also was a treat. I baked my loaf on Sunday and it was delicious. Thank you for a fabulous day!

Marion is a lovely, hospitable and very knowledgable teacher! A++ class - I'd definitely recommend

The class was held in Marion's beautiful unit overlooking the Harbour Bridge, which was a great view during breaks and snack times.

We were equipped with all the necessary instructions, ingredients and tools to begin one's own sourdough journey, and Marion set out an amazing spread with teas, coffees and gourmet snacks to be enjoyed throughout the class.

Marion’s class is incredible! It was so well structured and super instructive. She is an amazing teacher - so patient and warm with an amazing knowledge of the science of fermentation. The spread of snacks was also super generous! We nibbled on sourdough bread, crackers and pancakes as well as a lovely spread of fruit, cheese etc. Highly recommend. You also leave well-equipped to bake your loaf along with all the instructions you need to continue on your baking journey.

Such a lovely experience baking sourdough, great food and easy hands on learning. It was very therapeutic

Tony Papageorge Jun 2021

I learnt that no matter how many YouTube’s I watched on how to make sourdough Marion showed me all the techniques in detail and giving me the confidence to dive straight in.
Thanks Marion, great class. And what an awesome lunch; I should have eaten some more pancakes because as soon as my wife tried them they were gone, nice stuff.
Oh and I also learned not everything can be learned on YouTube.

Marion was fantastic, the time was filled well the spread of food over lunch-time break was more than substantial (and delicious) and her instructions were clear and easy to follow My first successful sourdough was the one I cooked the next day (in my photo) and I look forward to making sourdough for years to come using the techniques that I learned in this workshop!

A lovely venue with a spotless kitchen, fabulous view and a host whose knowledge and hospitality will be remembered for a long time.
The individual hands on experience is definitely the best way to learn.
Sourdough bread, savoury flat breads and pancakes will all be added to my culinary repertoire. Thank you Marion

Marion is a talented teacher and charming host. Her kitchen has superb Sydney harbour views and the whole class is a culinary experience. The lesson is practical and easy to follow and the tools and equipment is top quality. I would recommend this class to all levels of cooking ability. It was a fabulous way to learn the art of sourdough in a personalised setting.
