Few careers are as “sweet” as those of a pastry chef. If you are creative and detail-oriented, McFatter’s Baking and Pastry Arts program is for you. Learn how to create breads, pastries and desserts that look as beautiful as they taste!
Students will learn specific food preparation techniques, as well as how to measure correctly, mix and blend and make visually appealing creations, which are all necessary skills for a pastry chef. Hands-on activities are completed in our state of the art, full production commercial kitchens. Academic activities and sanitation (ServSafe®) are a blend of lectures, videos, demonstrations and online curriculum.
Take the first step toward receiving credit for that meal-ending dessert that wows the crowd!
