Hello, I am looking at pastry schools in/around New England, I'm thinking of doing a short term 6-9 month certificate program. I am 20 years old so to do a 2 year program and get out of college at 22 and be making 10 dollars an hour with a loan to pay back would not be ideal! I was looking at The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts in MA. http://www.cambridgeculinary.com/default.aspx
Does anyone have any info on this school or any other pastry school around NH??? I am looking to learn all aspects of pastry not just the cake end. Thanks for any and all advice I really appreciate it!!!
I wish I could help, but I am interested in the answers!
How much is tuition? Is it ACF certified? Even after this you'll only be making 10 an hour. How much more do you think you'll make in little over a year difference?
Tuition, time, paycheck, these are things im still considering...anyone else have any input?
I took Baking and Pastry Arts at George Brown College in Toronto. I graduated in 2006, and I am a bakery supervisor in a wheat and gluten free bakery. I have the education, the experience, and I only make $10 an hour. You really need to enjoy baking to do it as a profession.
I went to Newbury College in Newton MA. They had just started a pastry arts certificate program, and the instructors there were really good. Cambridge Culinary has a good reputation but I've never taken any classes there.
This is in Connecticut.
