The distinctive Baking & Pastry program is for students who love the culinary environment, but want to specialize. The program is designed to meet the challenges facing today's bakers and pastry chefs so students learn to adapt to fast changing trends and how to be successful in the challenging world of baking.
The program includes general education and business components, which complement the career-oriented curriculum so students can be successful as bakers while working on their own or part of a larger corporation.
Students develop a working knowledge of baking, pastry and dessert production and culinary arts integrated with the knowledge of cost control, food purchasing and safe food handling.
