Advanced Professional Program in French Pastry
Mastering the art of French pastry requires rigor and precision but also an ability to develop and renew an offer. Boutique, decorative and event products will be addressed during our new program, to provide participants with new inspirations and techniques from high-level pastry chefs. Throughout the program, participants will receive precious tips and insights from accomplished professionals to help them reach their career goal as a top-level pastry chef, the owner of a shop or the creator of an innovative concept.

What do students think about this program?
All teaching in this program will be in English (guest chefs may speak in French with simultaneous translation). Course materials will be in English. Although knowledge of the French language is not a requirement to be admitted to the program, it is important for the internship and more generally for daily life in Paris.
Throughout the program, participants will work towards the final Creativity Pop-Up, building on new skills and techniques as well as the different approaches and personalities of the teaching team. This project will involve the development in teams of a range of boutique products that will be offered for sale at the end of the program.
