WITH the pop-up kitchen sponsored by Ludlow Food Festival, cooking courses at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre have really taken off.

Aimed at all levels, these relaxed and hands-on baking sessions are perfect for anyone that wants to learn how to make better cakes, pastries and breads.

Local woman, Millie Rees moved to Shropshire in 1997 and runs very popular workshops and demonstrations as well catering and cooking in the café from time to time. With Milly's help and guidance, you will cover a wide range of pastry-making skills to produce delicious flaky-pastry pies, rich shortcrust tarts and Danish pastry treats for breakfast, lunch or tea-time.

If your cakes and scones have been a bit hit and miss and bread making has defeated you, then this course will get you baking confidently and with complete success.

You will go away with bags of goodies and lots of chef's tips to help you carry on with your baking at home.

Courses are being held on March 28 and April 4 from 10am - 2pm.
