Recognised globally as one of the most respected culinary qualifications in pastry and baking, Le Cordon Bleu Diplôme de Pâtisserie will enable you to become highly skilled and gain essential creative skills and to craft exceptional dishes and showpieces. The pastry diploma comprises three certificates: Basic, Intermediate and Superior. As you progress, the techniques taught become more advanced to develop your abilities in a structured manner.


Basic Pâtisserie is designed to give students a strong foundation on which to build their Pâtisserie skills and knowledge. Students learn to prepare a wide selection of desserts and pastries through practical sessions and demonstrations. This course lasts 3 months.
