Homemade Goodies: Edible Christmas Gifts and Treats at Cooks Academy

T’is the season! The Christmas period in Cooks Academy is always a busy one and between regular courses and corporate bookings, we also have festive workshops.

Today Chef Instructor and sweet-treat queen Darina Kelly hosted our Edible Christmas Gifts and Treats course, and with a variety of goodies to get through, all eyes and ears were on her.

From gingerbread cookies and truffles, to whoopie pies, brittle and homemade peanut butter cups, after a quick demo from Darina, the students got cracking.

With much patience, careful piping and expert cutting, before their eyes the treats began to appear.
