Baking without eggs and dairy can seem daunting at first, but it needn't be, in fact it is often easier to make a vegan cake than a dairy based equivalent.

From pastries and doughs to sticky puddings and cakes, join us for a delicious day of all things sweet.

There will be lots of cooking, but also plenty of conversation, tasting, fun and a savoury lunch. You will leave with a comprehensive recipe pack.
