Course Description

The Certificate in Pastry Arts program is a comprehensive course that combines theory with hands-on practice, which will enable students to understand and execute basic and advanced principles in baking and confectionery. The program will begin with a teaching of fundamental techniques for classic French recipes. Students will be able to reinforce their basic skills as they advance into more complex recipes.

At the end of the program, students have the option to pursue master classes at ADF+Enderun and then eventually take further studies at the distinguished Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Pâtisserie (ENSP) in France.
