    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course explains the basics of how to do certain sides of the baking spectrum before needing to go so deep into a part.

    Course highlights:

    Before starting it, I didn't know how to create classic ice cream or some of the major sanitary precautions needed for it. Now I not only know how to make classic ice cream, but also to make the flavor swirls and to add harder products like nuts into the mix.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This is the starting point of all your sides of baking. So pay attention, do the work, and make sure you ask why things happen.
