Classes

Have you ever wanted to learn how to get a thousand layers in a croissant? Or how to ice a cake like a pro? Or maybe how to shape a boule (or even just learn what a boule is). You’re in luck. Since moving into our new kitchen, TOA is expanding our offerings to add classes in our new space. Starting in February we will have a regular class schedule for what we’ve heard you are interested in.
