About Lila’s Classes

Most of our lessons are suitable for everyone (beginners, intermediate or advanced) – no experience is required.

There are demonstration classes for groups of 8 to 10 people maximum and hands-on workshops for 3 people max. (Dates & prices are specified on   “Book a classes”  (clic to see the schedule  )

For professionals, more advanced cooks with special requirements, we provide private one on one and small  hands-on workshop trainings (see our “Tailor made hands-on classes ”).

Each course lasts between three and a half to four hours and focuses on the content of the course chosen by Lila with the help of her students’ input. Different food items require different techniques and ingredients. Due to the time factor involved it is not easy to properly cover multiple items.

For example: If you choose to attend a class which focuses on the art of ‘Tarts’, Lila will teach you the basic techniques such as how to prepare and knead the dough for the base of the tart, how to make different types of fillings etc.. The possibilities are endless! – You can concoct different fillings for the base, such as a lemon or a chocolate ganache or you can even fill the base with custard & seasonal fruits! Depending on the final product, the cooking instructions can be varied. All of these will be explained to you by Lila in her class.


  • A step by step demonstration/workshop by Lila
