Making the Right Connections for Your Pastry Future
The French Pastry School |
April 1, 2014

Our students receive hundreds of hours of intensive, hands-on education every term. The goal of The French Pastry School is not only to teach students the techniques and theories behind gaining a new skill but also to make sure they can translate that skill into a successful career.

Prior to graduation, The French Pastry School organized a career fair for its students so they could be introduced to the myriad job opportunities available to them. Students were able to converse with potential employers, schedule stages, and submit resumes and applications.

Businesses in attendance included:

  • Bennison's Bakery
  • Hoosier Mama Pie Company
  • Vanille Patisserie
  • Rivers Casino
  • Calihan Catering
  • Standard Market
  • Horseshoe Casino
  • PUBLIC Chicago/ Pump Room
  • Oak Mill Bakery
  • Nordstrom
  • De Etta's
  • Mariano's
  • Blue Plate Catering


The current term of L'Art du Gâteau will graduate on May 2, 2014 and L'Art de la Pâtisserie will graduate on June 27, 2014.

New sessions of the full-time programs, L'Art de la Pâtisserie and L'Art du Gâteau begin on July 7, 2014 and September 2, 2014 respectively - the school is still accepting applications. For more information, please contact info@frenchpastryschool.com or visit the Programs page.
