What you'll do
In this four-hour, hands-on class we’ll bake “conchas”, the king of Mexican breads. Complete with a crunchy topping, this decadent sweet bun is absolutely delicious; if you’ve never had one, you’re in for a real treat. We’ll make both chocolate and vanilla versions of this classic pastry in my home-based, professional kitchen, which is where I do most of my baking, but you can easily replicate the recipe in your home with minimal equipment.
I’m a professional baker, cake decorator and food blogger based in Mexico City. I’m very passionate about the bread-making process, and lucky to live in a country where bread is delicious and abundant. *In addition to this bread baking class, now I'm hosting a second baking experience: make a tasty Tres Leches cake with me!
