We BURP, therefore we are.
Our third The Burp Society meet-up was a success!! Thanks to The Maya Kitchen for making this possible and for the memorable and fun experience of learning how to bake, with the help of their Culinary Director Ms. Rory Subida.
The exclusive baking class was in the works for almost 3 months. Since we’ve had meet-ups before at restaurants, we figured it’ll be nice to organize a different kind of get-together for our third meet-up. We sent The Maya Kitchen our ideas and they gladly helped us finalize the details as to when and what we’ll be preparing at the class.
We chose a basic baking class although Ken is well-experienced in baking since I know many ka-Burps would be interested in it. And I was glad to see that there were a total of 20 ka-Burps who showed up for the class, ready to learn more about how to bake goodies.
Aside from being a well-known brand for home cooks, Maya has been teaching people how to bake and cook for years now through The Maya Kitchen Culinary Arts Center. And what we love about them is they’re offering culinary and baking courses at affordable rates compared to other culinary schools, so they were our best choice for our first exclusive baking class for The Burp Society.
We started the class with baking demos from Ms. Rory where she showed us how to make chocolate chip cookies, apple pie, chocolate cupcakes and choux pastry (for eclairs and cream puffs).
We got to sample all of them afterwards, and we were all giddy with excitement to put all the knowledge into use at the hands-on baking.
Ms. Rory asked us to count down so we’ll be divided into 4, which required everyone to mingle with each other. We’re glad everyone was open to the idea and they were all having a really good time. 🙂
Here are all the photos of the ka-Burps while they were busy preparing their goodies:

And more photos… You can see all the photos we took on The Burp Society’s Facebook page.
And here are the finished products. We got to take home all of these.
Too bad the apple pie had to be all mushed up into plastic bags and our boxes. I completely forgot to tell everyone to bring their own containers, so thankfully, The Maya Kitchen had small plastic boxes for sale that we could use to take home our sinful creations.
All in all, it was an absolutely amazing time learning how to bake at The Maya Kitchen. They’re well-equipped and, since Ms. Rory has been doing this for a long time, she knows very well how to run a successful culinary school.
After the class, everyone was very happy and they were already asking us about the next baking class. Hopefully, we could organize another one with The Maya Kitchen because it was an unforgettable experience.
We blogged about the whole experience on our food blog – The Maya Kitchen baking class with The Burp Society.
Oh, by the way, here are the first ka-Burps to receive the TBS shirts. We only give this to those who have attended at least 2 meet-ups. 🙂
Thank you to all the ka-Burps who joined us. To those who weren’t able to come this time, no worries! We’ve got more fun activities and meet-ups planned for The Burp Society. So, stay tuned! 🙂
