“I learned a lot. My Chef Educator took a difficult task and really broke it down, and challenged us to retrace our steps even when we made mistakes to understand why the pastry may not have turned out perfectly. This helped to both expand our knowledge and understand the science behind the art.”

Specialized Learning

We do our best to simulate a real-world pastry arts setting to prepare you to reach your professional objectives beyond the classroom. To amplify your baking and pastry fundamentals, we emphasize more specialized areas such as baking artisan breads, creating and decorating cakes, exploring molecular gastronomy, learning to create signature desserts, and more. Through a well-rounded education in both the basic elements of the pastry arts and more finely-focused training, we hope to help you shape your personalized pastry path.
