"Pastry is often seen as just a carrier for savoury or sweet fillings, but it is far more than that. It is the first part of the product you see; the first part you cut; the first bite you eat. It is the first indication that will tell your customer how good your product is. It deserves to be given serious consideration. This course will do just that. It will give you the information and tools you will need to control and improve the quality of your pastry, whatever type you are making."

This course can be customised and is available in house
