Fundamentals of Pastry

Marie-Antoine Carême (1783-1833) said "The fine arts are five in number, namely: painting, sculpture, poetry, music, and architecture, the principal branch of the latter being pastry."

If Parisian pastries make your sugar senses tingle and have you feeling inspired, test out your own baking skills with SCAFA's 3-hour cooking classes focusing on pastry, baking, desserts, chocolate and more. Patisserie has always been constant topics and trends for food enthusiasts.The programme that we have designed is a programme that can be taken as a series or individual classes, focusing purely on the basics and fundamentals of baking and desserts.
