Bread Baking Arts: Quick Breads, Artisan Breads & Breakfast Pastries 180-HOURS | 25 UNITS | 298+ TASKS | OVER 229 VIDEOS Enroll Today

The French Pastry School Master Bakers have designed a new and comprehensive course with 25 units, 296 tasks, and 229 videos focused on Quick Breads, Artisan Breads, and Breakfast Pastries. The program will help you take an in-depth look at both food science principles and cornerstone ingredients, including their composition and role in each recipe within the course. The focus will then shift to the practical component, emphasizing technique and application with a wide range of breads and breakfast items made with chemical leaveners such as baking soda and baking powder. Finally, you will then move to more challenging tasks with an emphasis on science and methodology applied to artisan breads and breakfast pastries with various fermentations such as Biga, Poolish, Fermented Doughs, Sponge Starter, and Levain. This comprehensive course is designed to give you broad knowledge of the Art of Bread and baking in general.


Developed by the esteemed team of chef educators at the French Pastry School, including co-founders Sébastien Canonne, M.O.F., and Jacquy Pfeiffer, James Beard Award-winning author, who are both recipients of the French Legion of Honour Award, this course has been developed with special attention to both knowledge and competency-based learning.
