Bake with Maria was founded by keen baker Maria Mayerhofer. The company started out in Maria’s own kitchen where she taught groups of people how to make their own bread at home. The classes soon became very popular, and many of them would be booked out shortly after being posted online. The feedback from students has been so positive and the demand for classes was more than a small domestic kitchen could cope with. Feeling assured that there was a demand for baking classes in London, Maria took the next step and opened up The Baking Lab in the beginning of November, 2011. The Baking Lab features top of the range domestic appliances. It is important to the concept that everything that is taught in the Baking Lab can be replicated at home without fancy ovens or endless pieces of baking equipment.
