    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    By taking this course, it helped me get integrated into the baking and pastry world. It also helped me learn basic skills and techniques that I have built upon throughout every class that I have taken since then.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this course included poaching pears, leaning how to make pastry cream, and the carrot cake we made in class. I learned numerous things in this class for example, knife cuts, basic formulas, math conversions, and much more. All of which I have built upon.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students whom plan on taking this course to study, and pay close attention during demos. Most chefs are pretty lenient during the learning stage, but once you pass that they will expect you to be able to replicate that same product on your own, and taking notes during demos will help you. Taking notes during the demos will also give you something to look back on if you have a question about that particular product.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a basics class, meant to put the students closer to the same level. If you already have experience you don't learn much, but if you have no experience it can be a slight challenge. The teacher I had was good at seeing where the class was at and what pace was needed.

    Course highlights:

    I went in with no experience and learned quite a bit. The title is pretty self explanatory, this class is about fundamentals and basics.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I had this class first section first term, and I know they build upon what you're taught as you go along, but as long as you actually pull your weight it's not a hard class.
