Practice makes perfect. This age-old maxim is never truer than in the kitchen, but to many promising young pastry chefs and entrepreneurs who’d love to turn their passion into a successful venture, it presents a painful Catch 22.
Everyone knows that mastering the intricacies of pastry requires hours and hours of practice. Being considered for a position in a pastry kitchen likewise requires extensive experience; as does being a successful entrepreneur. But most culinary courses only allow students to gloss over the basics. So where, and how, is one meant to gain those elusive hours of practice?
Look no further: the CTIA Innovation in Pastry programme provides hours of hands-on training and invaluable skills to run a business, open your own deli or give you a foothold in the competitive world of patisserie.
Over the course of nine weeks, you will master the complex and crucial skills that set successful entrepreneurs apart from those who were unable to turn their culinary dreams into a reality.
Students learn the fine science of recipe development and adaptation, and are taught how to manage a kitchen operation profitably and establish an effective production line without ever compromising on quality and established best practices.
For some students, realising their sweetest dreams means being able to turn their love for food into a successful undertaking. For others, it is being appointed as a pastry chef. If either of these resonates with you, it’s time to sign up for the CTIA Innovation in Pastry Programme.
