Baking & Pastry

The Baking & Pastry Arts program is designed to prepare students for an entry-level position in a variety of baking environments including independent and in-store bakeries as well as large commercial bakeries, restaurants and hotels. The program emphasizes safety & sanitation, weights and measures, ingredient properties, baking & mixing methods, and the development of basic baking and pastry skills, both sweet and savory. Students learn through a combination of lecture, demonstration and practice in the bakeshop lab.

Internship, continuing education and networking within the professional culinary community is strongly recommended.
