I am very excited about taking the course. It is not the full-fledged Professional program, but it will serve me well with what I am seeking to learn in baking.
I purchased the book,
and plan on reading it now! So, you’ll probably see posts about what I bake. It won’t include their recipes (for legal reasons). You’ll just have to buy the book! :) Why not, you’re worth it! The lessons in this book were developed under the direction of Dean of Pastry Arts, Jacques Torres.
I love the motto that Jacques Torres lives by:
LIFE IS SHORT, EAT DESSERT FIRST
Here's an exerpt from the FCI website about the book:
“THE FCI WINS BEST VOCATIONAL SCHOOL AND COOKBOOK AWARD
At the 2010 IACP Awards, The French Culinary Institute received the prestigious Award of Excellence for Best Vocational Cooking School, considered the industry most coveted acknowledgement of excellence, and the IACP Cookbook Award for The Fundamental Techniques of Classic Pastry Arts.”
My goal is to learn more about baking on a professional level. Learning how to measure ingredients by weight and learning techniques correctly will make for an excellent baker.
Peace in baking,
Baking is my Zen…sweet nibbles for the soul
