Program Information

School:Nova Scotia Community College
Degree:Certificate
Field of Study:Baking and Pastry Arts/Baker/Pastry Chef
Description:Nova Scotia's demand for experts who understand, respect and can create traditional breads of many cultures continues to grow. In this program you will go from France to Scandinavia, Sweden, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, several countries of the Middle East and even San Francisco through bread. You will learn the delicate balance of chemistry, history, love and art that goes into each loaf. Additionally, we will look at baking for those with health issues, for example gluten-free breads for Celiac and Colitis sufferers. You will get to know the traditions behind each style and why it must be prepared, baked and served just so.

We emphasize traditional by-hand methods before teaching today's mechanized approach. Then we move on to cakes, cookies, pies, tortes and flans of all styles - even wedding cakes. Baking is an art and a lifestyle that demands attention, respect and dedication. It is also a business - so we will prepare you by teaching you the art of writing a business plan and being an entrepreneur. This program smells good, tastes better and could lead you to a very satisfying career.
