Culinary Arts Baking & Pastry
Students gain hands-on experience building an extensive repertoire of pastries, breads, and desserts: pies, cakes, laminated pastries, and various breads. Our kitchen has a new bake shop equipped with multiple Hobart and KitchenAid mixers, a dough sheeter, convection oven, proof box, and deck oven. While students practice making pastries for real life deadlines in our outlets, they work together to improve their communication and collaboration skills. Students also learn the whys behind the how’s. We investigate the science of baking as well as break down the calculations needed for real life mathematical scenarios in the kitchen.
This class is a great springboard for creating interest in food science and other culinary pathways. Commercial Baking and Pastry allows the student’s passion to drive the learning and application of knowledge.
Meet the Instructor
I am excited to share my passion for pastry with my students! I enjoy sharing my technical skills and knowledge with students through hands-on work, creating food for actual customers, and taking the time to discuss the reasons why our pastries taste and turn out the way they do.
The Commercial Baking & Pastry program is a great opportunity for students to discover if working in a professional kitchen is the right fit for their future. Even if they decide to choose a different path, the class will help them better understand how to create desserts and breads at home.
