Eat and Mess is an independent bakery and school running in Deal, Kent and South London.
Founded by Kate Mooney, professional pastry and bread baker, Kate personally runs all informative but hands on classes designed to encourage both the complete beginner, and enthusiastic home baker to learn new skills and techniques. Deliberately creating an informal setting for students to work over flour dusted work surfaces and get their hands hands stuck into the dough over cups of tea and home baked goodies; it’s an almost therapeutic experience.
Kate offers a range of 2-3 hour classes from Healthy Baking (yep, no refined sugar!) to Artisan Bread Baking and Cake Decorating to Gluten Free baking. Gooey deliciousness still guarenteed! Private or group sessions for all ages and levels are welcomed into the kitchen and students take their goods home at the end of the class, or some like to stay and tuck in with a cuppa. Kate’s passion is to teach, sharing her skills and recipes and spreading her love of good baking, being raised as a farmer’s daughter, she is passionate about supporting UK farmers by using quality British ingredients in her recipes.
