Before the year ends I promised myself that I will develop a new skill. I have decided to finally learn how to bake.
I have been trying to find a great school here in Davao City that offers short courses and programs for pastry making. I have been envious of my friends who knows how to bake because aside from the fact that they are earning, it is also an edge for a girl to have this kind of skill. Fun fact about me: I tried making truffles by watching youtube video and guess what....it was an epic fail. The video-tutorial didn't work for me so I will go and seek some help from the professionals -- I must lol.
One of my best friends introduced me with the Philippine Baking Institute that is located at Ecoland Drive, Matina Davao City. Of course I did my thorough research and ended up discovering the gems of the school, by gems I mean the key points on why should I enroll here. Here are my top 5 rationale:
5. It fits with my schedule. Perfect for working girls like me and even for boys.
4. Hands-on mentoring program.
3. The materials and ingredients are already provided plus the classroom and equipment is top of the line and world class.
2. They have the best chef to mentor you. Mind you we are talking both local and international chef here.
1. They are TESDA accredited -- true to their slogan "Be A Professional Baker".
This coming Friday 27th of November will be that start of the cake decorating and fondant making that will be mentored by THE chef Hannah Granado and that's until the 29th of November.
I have always dreamed of making these kinds of things. Imagine I will be decorating the cakes of my loved ones from now on haha exciting. Everything will be extra special when it's personalized, and how much more if its their birthday cakes right? Sorry I'm just too excited for this experience -- I can't wait to learn and to apply this.
Wish me luck!
Also I have been eyeing on the pastry-making but they said they don't have a schedule for it yet since the chef that will be mentoring is from Belgium the great master baker chef Peter De Cauwer (how exciting!!!) and they still have to fix the schedule. I'll just update you guys with that or better yet try calling them yourself and let me know if you already have an answer for it. Students will be taught how to make truffles, cupcakes, crout dough, etc using the european technique. I need to be in that class ---hello truffles, cupcakes and the list goes on ughhh I badly need to learn how to make those.
You can contact them at (082) 286 - 8552, (0917) 684 7538, 09229145293.
How about you what skill/s do you want to learn before the year ends? Let me know and if you can't think of anything you might want to join me and let's bond together. :)
Have a great week guys, talk to you soon. :*
