Whether it is an insatiable sweet tooth or a love of warm, home-baked bread, students in the Baking and Pastry Arts program at LaSalle College Vancouver share a passion for crafting fine pastry and desserts. The Baking and Pastry Arts Diploma curriculum explores methods for the preparation of yeast and sweet dough. Pastry curriculum introduces classic creams, custards, and other fillings, as well as methods for making mousses, tarts and cakes.
Students learn measurement, temperature, creative finishing, and how to create hearth and artisan breads. They also get the chance to make and deliver assorted baked goods to the school’s various departments on a daily basis – giving the authentic sense of working in a real bake shop. Students further put their learning into practice through practicums in the baking and pastry industry and the student-run campus restaurant.
