Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:
Engage in a baking lesson at the lovely country home of Tracey Jeffrey. Step inside this quaint 18th-century thatched-roof cottage on the banks of Strangford Lough and join your instructors in the kitchen. An expert teacher and patisserie, Tracey studied her craft in France for years. Now she's sharing her love of baking with students in her hands-on classes. Join her (subject to availability) and her expert baker for an up-close opportunity to learn the professional secrets of bread making. Sit and watch or roll up your sleeves and join the fun as they combine the ingredients, proof and knead the dough just so to create their tasty treats.

What you will see:
Gaze out on Belfast as you enjoy a brief city tour. Pass the political murals reminders of 'the troubles' in Belfast's turbulent past. Pass the imposing City Hall and its grand façade. In front of the hall stands 'Thane,' a marble sculpture commemorating the 1912 sinking of the ill-fated Belfast-built RMS Titanic. Continue to Strangford Lough, a sheltered bay where the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, is said to have landed. The lough holds special scientific interest, hosting over 2,000 marine species.

Tasting:
Following your lesson, relax and enjoy some tea or coffee while you sample the baked goods prepared during your visit.
