Want To Learn How to Make Beautiful Healthy Fermented Cheesecakes?
Impress your family and friends with delicious home made, healthy cheesecakes that are mostly raw, all vegan, gluten/wheat/dairy and refined sugar free.
Let’s take your dessert skills to the next level.
This class will give you the recipes, techniques and methods needed to make amazing, healthy cheesecakes at home or work.
This 2 hour livestream class is designed for intermediate students or those with a good baking background. You don’t need to have a dehydrator to make the recipes from this class, you can also use your oven.
My teaching style and ethos is to give people tried and tested base recipes that you can chop and change to create something new and different.
What you’ll learn …
Raw Tart Shells
The foundation of any good pie or tart is the shell. I’ll teach you my favourite one and show you it’s versatility. One will be formed into mini tart shells and the other into a large ring tart – meaning there is a hole in the centre. See the Raspberry Tart image on this page for an example.
A crucial part of being a chef of any kind and, in part, what will make your desserts stand out from others. We’ll explore this in class so you know what to add for that flavour pop and a well rounded dessert.
We’ll get into some easy fermentation by fermenting cashews using 2 different starter liquids to encourage more depth of flavour and nutritional properties through the fermentation process. These “buttercream” frostings pipe like a dream, so if you have wanted the perfect decorating cream, look no further.
Fermented ‘buttercream’ frostings work amazingly well for piping, similar to a traditional buttercream. You’ll learn some important tips and tricks to get you on your way and keep you rocking.
Piping is one way to finish a tart, but not the only way. We’ll also use fresh fruit, jam and herbs to finish as well.

Frequently asked questions
Absolutely. This class is designed to meet the student where they are. If you have never made chocolate before, you’ll get all the information and hands on experience needed to set you up for success.
Although you may have extensive experience making chocolate at home, you’ve not made chocolate in the way I teach it and therefore it’s important you attend this class prior to either the Candy Bars & Bombs or the Advanced Raw Chocolate classes. I don’t want you to be lost and if you don’t attend the Fundamentals first, you will be and that’s not a nice experience for you.
You are most welcome to do whatever you please after the class, however, starting a business is not the main objective of this class. — learning the Foundations of Raw Chocolate making is. If you’re interested in starting a business and developing a product line, I’d encourage you to look at my Business Packages option.
You’re more than welcome to bring your chocolate to class for others to try and give you constructive feedback on. If you’d specifically like my feedback, that’s a service I will be offering shortly.
