At Pastry Boot Camp, you will learn the fundamentals of pastry and the techniques used in creating basic preparations such as laminated dough, pastry creams, crème anglaise, pâte à choux (éclairs and profiteroles), mousses and Bavarians, sponge cakes, buttercreams, and tarts.

When you enlist in CIA Pastry Boot Camp, you will receive two chef’s uniforms, each with a jacket, pants, and a neckerchief. Paper chef’s hats, side towels, and aprons will be provided in class.
