The French Pastry School

Food Enthusiast

As a part of our Continuing Education program, The French Pastry School offers 3-5-day courses specifically geared toward food enthusiasts. These classes require no previous experience in pastry or baking, and provide a professional, fun, and comfortable introduction to many areas of the pastry arts. A variety of topics are presented year-round in these short-term courses and all tools, equipment, and ingredients are provided for each student.  The courses are taught in a superior educational format, using a mix of demonstrations and partial hands-on experience.  This method allows the chef instructor to work side-by-side with the students, passing on years of knowledge in just a few days.  Many people begin with a "food enthusiast" level Continuing Education class to learn new skills, or see if our full-time programs are right for them.  Continuing Education students earn a certificate approved by the American Culinary Federation, receive a recipe book and a bountiful buffet of desserts taught in each class to take home.
