Study Italian Baking and Pastry

Italy has always been synonymous with good food and wine. The simplicity of our cuisine and especially of our sweets, breads and desserts is truly unique and cannot be paralleled by cuisines of other cultures. Regional differences and quality ingredients make it unequaled, along with the centuries of refining and perfecting the recipes of master bakers and pastry chefs. From rustic breads to festival sweets, Italian life is dominated by local specialties that mark each tradition: chocolate Easter eggs, Quaresimali cookies, zeppole, biscotti and gelato.The Baking and Pastry program is structured to give students an understanding of Italian Culture as well as the technical means to become professionals in the Baking and Pastry field. Certificate Program may be taken for one semester or one year. The one year program consists of two semesters, each offering a set of core classes and intensive weekend seminars. Students can attend one single semester and obtain a transcript for credits, or complete the full year program and receive a Certificate in Baking and Pastry. Upon completion of the Baking and Pastry Certificate, students may continue their studies in the second year of the Culinary Arts Certificate.
