    foundations of vegan baking & pastry

    Posted by Adrienn (Hungary) on 2nd Jul 2017

    It's a good program to set you up with the foundations of baking or if you want to keep your pastry knowledge up to date, learn new techniques and kitchen hacks. We covered a big part of the pastry world, muffins, breads, danishes, macarons, raw, decorations., etc.. #vegancookingschool

    An amazing experience! Thank you.

    Posted by Houda Hassaniyeh (Lebanon) on 30th Jun 2017

    As a student, I had the unique opportunity to receive hands-on training and comprehensive instructions every step of the way. I definitely think that the Vegan Gastronomy Culinary Academy is a great stepping-stone for those who are looking for a well-rounded program in the vegan cuisine. The Vegan Advanced Pastry Course that I had taken is an ideal program for those who want to learn solid fundamentals in a short amount of time. The class was small, 16 students to 3 and sometimes 4 instructors. Personal attention had been given to students and instructors were caring and attentive, not only in the kitchen, but how each of us had been doing as a person and not just as a student. The instructors had been incredibly knowledgeable and very encouraging to their students. It is a great institute. I learnt a lot. It was an amazing experience! Thank you Manuel, Stephanie, Jessica and Sandra for all your help, care and encouragement! #vegancookingschool

    The building blocks of pastry

    Posted by Hannelore (Belgium) on 30th Jun 2017

    This course is really accessible for al levels. They start of the course with the basics so everyone can build up to the same level of knowledge. I really liked all the kitchen hacks that will make life a lot easier in my kitchen. They showed me how to make the pastries that had never worked out before at home and I got to find out a lot about the chemistry of pastry. Thanks to this course I will now be able to put together my own pastries and get creative!

    Advanced Pastry

    Posted by Francesca - Savouring Seasons (Italy) on 30th Jun 2017

    The first week of the course taught me all the basics: sauces, fillings, crusts, etc. Each day built on the techniques from the days before: by the end I had a good overall knowledge to make the perfect pastry. The second week was definitely the more advanced part of the course: we learned to assemble high-end pastries with beautiful decorations. There was less hands-on experience than the level 1 course but I learned a lot more techniques to help me design more beautiful and tasty desserts.

    Advanced Pastry Course

    Posted by Anastasia - Naked Bakery (Australia) on 30th Jun 2017

    I came here to refresh my knowledge about pastries and learn about vegan techniques to apply to my business back home. I learnt a lot of techniques and methods that I will definitely be using in my products, as well as new learnt approaches to existing products which were not working very well back home. Sandra, Jess, Steph and Manuel have a lot of knowledge in different things and all combined gave me a lot of experience to take back with me. The island was lovely too.

    Advanced Pastry Course

    Posted by Giri S (India) on 30th Jun 2017

    I was lucky to get into an advanced course though I had no real baking knowledge. The course has good topics to get insight in to and understand vegan baking techniques and quirks. I personally liked the second week of the course as It was great to learn some smart baking and decorating techniques and understand how you can create magic with your desserts and baked goodies.
