Join Keva from Sucre Patisserie on the 9th of September to learn how to make your own croissants from scratch!

Sucre Patisserie was founded in 2015 by pastry chef Keva Freeman from a desire to share her love of French patisserie with her hometown. In the pursuit of perfecting her patisserie skills, she travelled to Europe seeking experience in “real French patisseries”. After twelve months working and sampling every kind of pastry in France, Keva travelled to the United Kingdom. There, she further developed her craft working in a small chocolate factory in the Scottish Highlands and as Head Pastry Chef at a fine dining restaurant in Essex.

All pastries are made entirely from scratch following traditional French recipes.
