Pastry Training

Life can be sweet, but it is never as sweet as when you are indulging in a beautifully made dessert. Creating something that brings so much pleasure, that is tasty and delightfully beautiful, is a work of art. Within the culinary world the role of pastry chef is one of respect and prestige, however, in order to become a celebrated pastry chef it will be required that you undergo vigorous pastry training that will enable you to truly master the art of making mouth-watering pastries.

At the Prue Leith Chefs Academy you will be taught how to skilfully manipulate ingredients such as cream, butter, flour, sugar and chocolate to create delicious treats like cakes, desserts, friandise and breads. Under the guidance of Debby van Wyk (HOD Pastry) and Stephan Els (Pastry Sous Chef), our pastry training curriculum was carefully developed to teach you, in depth, the various aspects of pastry over a five week period. At the end of your 2nd Commis Semester it will be mandatory that you write the City & Guilds exam that will accredit you with the Diploma in Patisserie (7065), a sure way to open doors for you on your way to become a celebrated pastry chef.
