A comprehensive introduction into the Art of Baking and Pastry. Developing a firm foundation in 7 key areas, you will be exposed to a wide array of techniques and products that form the building blocks of classical and contemporary desserts. You will cover technical handling skills, honed with practice as well explore the scientific aspects that contribute to the success in baking.

The Foundations level is ideal for people who have none or some prior experience to baking. Comfortably paced, we aim to teach you technical skills rather than just recipes.
