What you'll do

Do you know the taste of a fresh butter baked Danish pastry?
During this hands-on class, you will learn to bake Danish happiness (dansk hygge).

A professional pastry chef with many years of experience will guide you through all the different baking techniques and tips including kneading, rolling and folding the dough with butter.
We will make a selection of traditional and delicious Danish pastries (Wienerbrød).
The course will have a break with coffee/tea where you can try some of your Danish pastries and exchange your cultural/baking experiences. You can bring the rest of them home to share with your family.
You work in stations of 2 so if you book this alone, please be aware that you will be paired with another baking enthusiast. But this is also a great chance to meet new people.

Recipes:
Very detailed recipes will be sent to your email after the class, so it is important that you leave your email-address. This also means that you can concentrate on the baking part and take great pictures of your lovely pastries.

Children:
From 11 years old are welcome in the class if with a paying adult. From the age of 13 years, a child can participate alone - but please contact me before booking so that I can confirm. I only accept paying participants in the kitchen.

Allergies and special considerations:
This class is not suitable for persons with gluten, lactose, almond allergies.
Other things to note
We recommend comfortable flat shoes and don't forget your camera !

Absolute must do! Frederic is a great teacher and has a great flow with the class. You are in a large professional kitchen with everything very clean and organized and you feel excited to bake! Time flies because there is so much to do but not over whelming. We made 4 amazing pastries that were absolutely delicious and looked professional! I brought the left overs home to my Danish Family and they said these were the best the have ever had! Such a great experience and plan to do this again!

It was one of the best and the most memorable moments in my whole trip in Copenhagen! Frédéric is very friendly, he made us feel always comfortable even when we made mistakes sometimes. There was no rush, no stress! Also, the pastries were really delicious—you might not need to buy danish pastries anymore because the taste of yours is as same as you might expect or would be even better! And the amount of pastries were also more than enough😂 plus the class was so informative that I could learn quite a lot about baking itself! I’ll definitely recommend his class to other friends of mine who want to visit Copenhagen :)

I booked this class with Frederic for my boyfriend and me, and it was a really great experience! He structured the class very well (first we made the pastries with pre made dough since it needed to rise, then we ended the class with making our own dough) and I felt that I learned a lot about Danish pastries. Frederic is also obviously very qualified with his many years of pastry experience so it was cool to hear more about how he came to Copenhagen. We left the class with 12 Danish pastries each, which made us very popular with our friends ;) I would definitely recommend!

Fantastic class! Great for avid bakers or beginners. Frederic was so welcoming, funny, and knowledgeable and did a great job catering to a different skill levels in the one class. I was so surprised with how many pastries we made and got to take home! :) I would definitely take another of Frederic's classes, and would highly recommend this experience to others.

We had a wonderful time with Frederic! We really felt we were in great hands when trying out baking Danish pastries, and Frederic was super helpful, friendly and amazing at explaining what to do and how to do it so it didn't seem like rocket science (even though it might as well be!!) :-)
