About your Mentor

About your Mentor


I started my career as an apprentice pastry chef over 25 years ago in Melbourne. I opened Sugardough in Hove in 2009 and also have a bakery and café on Market Street in the heart of Brighton’s Lanes. I have always remained true to the ethos of using traditional baking techniques and top-quality natural ingredients - plus plenty of time, care and passion - to deliver the very best handmade cakes, sourdough bread, pastries and savouries. I love teaching and think it is important to pass on skills.

Learning aims

You will be taught how to make brioche by hand, naturally, including mixing, proving, forming and baking.

Strengths to develop

Making brioche by hand is a very physical process. The weighing and preparing of ingredients along with hand-kneading (there is a double knead) will ensure that you get a good workout! Many people find the hands-on experience of the ingredients and rhythmical kneading of the dough very calming and even therapeutic!
