Want to meet some very promising young ladies? It seems the best place for that is the Union League Club of Chicago on a recent Thursday, April 21, when The Professional Cake Decorating and Baking Program of The French Pastry School of Kennedy-King College graduated its students, all of whom (from the photos provided by the school) are women.
Want to keep up with them?
Many of these recent graduates will work in establishments across the country, from New York to Los Angeles, while others will stay in Chicago to work in cake and pastry kitchens in well regarded establishments such as the Hilton Hotel and Take the Cake. Several graduates, who have completed this certificate program will enroll in L’Art de la Pâtisserie, the Professional Pastry and Baking Program, or in L’Art de la Boulangerie , the new eight-week artisan bread course and continue their education. Others will work toward opening their own shops, or continue with businesses they’ve already begun.
You might already be familiar with the patisserie of graduates of the school, or one of its most famous instructors, Jacquy Pfeiffer, Academic Dean for Student Affairs, who was the star of Kings of Pastry (see Kings of Pastry.
Congratulations to all.
