Devote more time to decoration and presentation of your cakes.
Like the Intermediate Cuisine program, Intermediate Pastry is based on practice and repetition. As you begin to master important techniques, such as making a sponge cake or a Bavarian cream cake, your proficiency will allow you to focus on the decoration and presentation of your cakes. You will also be introduced to the basics of chocolate making, such as tempering and dipping, using caramel and nougatine, and preparing restaurant-style desserts.
I realized I always wanted to be in the kitchen with my mom, but not necessarily watch her cook, but rather have her move aside and let me do the cooking. That's really when I realized that this is what I want to do, this is what I want my life to be about.
The people here are incredible! Obviously there is the learning experience, but also the ability to meet people from around the world and hear about what food means to them.
... that's the key to the Cordon Bleu experience - we have amazing Chefs who want to teach us everything they know - and we need only ask. We have the opportunity to learn that goes far beyond the demos, practicals and the workshops.
