Guest Tutor: Mark Tilling - Mastering Chocolate


Friday 27th September 2019 10am - 4pm

Victoria’s Kitchen is thrilled that the fabulous Mark Tilling is now a regular at our Cake School in Surrey, so there are lots of opportunities to be taught by the man himself.

Mark’s team won the first BBC2’s Bake Off Creme De La Creme, and more recently he was starring in Channel 4’s Extreme Cake Makers. Mark himself has many awards including winning the UK Chocolate Masters from 2006 to 2008, and coming 12th in 2007 and 7th in 2009 at the finals of the World Chocolate Masters. This is a wonderful opportunity to be taught by one of the World’s leading Chocolatiers, in a small group environment.
