Sylwia was very knowledgeable about pastry and taught great hands on techniques that we will be able to reproduce at home without too much specialty equipment. This was a very special experience and we got to chat a lot about life in Iceland. Sylwia was an excellent host and we left with beautiful pastries as well as recommendations of what other things we can do while staying in Iceland. If you love pastry and good conversation I would highly recommend this experience!

Tart making session was private and cosy. Slywia went out of the way to arrange the lesson for me and went ahead to prep the materials so we can concentrate on the making. She makes it easy to understand and follow and even offered.a nice cuppa tea and cookies! She will constantly feedback and highlight the things to note and if u ask her questions..she is open to answer. Open and sincere of her passion, she even arranges for take away of tarts and send me back. Such a lovely time we had and i look forward to sharing my tarts makin when i reach home. Thanks slywia!!

Making tarts with Sylwia was so much fun! Sylwia is extremely kind, patient, and knowledgeable. I do not get to do a lot of baking at home, but Sylwia makes everyone feel like they can do anything in the kitchen with a little instruction and self-confidence. The Tart Factory experience takes place in a relaxed and collaborative atmosphere... we learned so much, had great conversations, and made delicious (and very pretty) desserts! I definitely recommend booking this experience during your trip to Iceland.

Sylwia is a wonderful person and this is definitely a must do! She brought our whole group together and at the end it felt too soon for us to leave. She really knows what she’s doing in the kitchen too!

This is a wonderful way to get a little bit outside of Reykjavík and meet a wonderful person WHILE drinking some tea and baking tarts! Sylwia is so kind and helpful. I loved learning from her, and it felt like I was with a close friend! The tarts turned out beautifully. I loved exploring the outer Reykjavík area, and Sylwia was even kind enough to drive me back to the city center afterwards. Would recommend this experience highly!!

Sylvia made me feel like we were old friends catching up to bake together. She was so accommodating and welcoming. Even drove me back to my AirBnB. I had so much fun and I could have never learned how to do it without her.
