Said About Us
I feel that the program creates a very strong foundation to be a successful pastry chef by teaching a different range of topics. The topics cover the right range of recipes and each recipe has different techniques and different style to it. I feel like the programs have helped me create a better sense of confidence in myself and polish up my abilities and techniques.
In this Academy, we do everything from scratch to the final products and so we are able to learn everything, the techniques and the recipes. The topics are offered in this Academy covers both conventional and modern that gives us a very good basic, a strong skills in order to understand baking and pastry. Not only we will be able to see how things worked in the past, but the chef here actually opens our eyes to show us what would be the future trends coming.
I chose Academy of Pastry Arts Malaysia because I can learn a new technique in sugar arts, chocolate showpiece and modern cake. I have graduated from Academy of Pastry Arts Malaysia and now I am working in JW Marriott.
Learning at this Academy broadens my knowledge, my perspective on pastry and bakery industry. I would definitely use all the techniques and skills that I have learned here in my future undertakings and hopefully I would open up my own bakery.
Recently I was getting married and I had great difficulty finding someone to do me a fruit cake for my wedding. The cake itself is very simple to make as one would think well fruit cake yes, simple! what made this wedding cake special is not so much the fact it’s a fruit cake but the delicate sugar icing flowers that decorate the cake.
I like it here because the classes are really hands-on; we get to do a lot of things from scratch. For example, this week we are doing a wedding cake. We are actually doing roses everything from scratch, so by the end of the week we will be doing a three tier wedding cake.
This is a great place to learn Pastry & Bakery! I meet so many different people from the Pastry & Bakery industry, Chefs and students. This Academy is special as it is more professional than other schools and focuses on practical training! In every way it meets my expectations. The facilities are amazing and the teachers very experienced. My favourite part was to learn about Chocolate & Pralines!
I learn and discover new things every day. It feels very authentic, as the teacher is a Chef from France. I am so happy to study at the academy as I learn a lot in a very personal setting. The class size is small and I get the best supervision. Class is from Monday to Friday. I don’t like to be bored at home, so on Saturdays I go to the academy and practice. They are very flexible and supportive. I feel very confident in my skills already! A bonus is the big exposure I get at the academy through there visiting chefs. I learnt from two World Champions!
I really enjoyed the 3month program! The best is we get to practice a lot and there are no limits! We can be creative and bring our own ideas! The teachers are super patient with us and never shouted. It is a new place and a real eye catcher. When I came to have a look at the place, the space and facilities impressed me a lot. You can´t find anything like it anywhere else in Malaysia!
