PROFESSIONAL PASTRY MAKING COURSE
"Eat with more than just the mouth"
The art of pastry making goes beyond cuisine. It is a world apart, with different techniques, times and tools. Those who take this path must learn a new language of patience, dedication and love for detail. A world where creativity may roam free and aesthetics becomes imperative!
The pastry making course is aimed at developing a specialized figure in charge of bread and desserts in the pastry section within restaurants and luxury hotels (featured in the Michelin Guide). Students learn the philosophy of an independent unit that lives around the oven, flour, sugar, gelatin and thickeners.

Since 1994, the European Economic Community has established several fundamental decrees that regulate “personnel hygiene and quality control” in the food industry and apply to all employees in the sector.
It is enforced through adequate training and a system of auto-control called “HACCP” (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points). Students will get the chance to learn more with technician Luca Ballabio and take an exam leading to the certificate.
