Join me in my kitchen

Unwind, enjoy and learn

Join me in my kitchen
unwind, enjoy and learn

Relaxed and fun cooking and baking classes

Set in the beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside, Gourmandises Académie operates from the home studio of award-winning patissière Corinne Payet.  Blending artful technique with warmth and personality, Corinne runs a range of cookery classes from her home kitchen near Cambridge. They are fun, hands on, and extremely relaxed, perfect whether you are a complete novice, an adventurous cook or an accomplished one.

I am a firm believer that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and I’m thrilled to be welcoming you into mine.

Cooking and baking are my happy place, and I founded Gourmandises Académie to share my love of elegant French desserts and food in a convivial setting. During each cookery class, you will learn classic techniques used by top French chefs, but this is not like any cookery school. Take notes if you wish, but more importantly be prepared to learn and laugh at the same time. The Académie gives you a rare opportunity to connect and unwind away from the buzz of every day life.

Corinne teaches classic French patisserie with a Creole twist from the tropical island of Réunion where she was born. Her style and panache are exceptional and she is a great communicator – thank you for a great day!
