This 6-week program is like pastry school for the home cook, covering some of the more intermediate pastry and baking techniques. The “Pastry Series for the Home Cook – Beginner” program is not a prerequisite, but suggested. Students will work hands-on with a partner, building their skills, and adding to their competencies week by week. Students meet every Sat. & Sun. for 6 weeks, from 9 am – 1 pm.
