Any French Pastry School (Chicago) Grads here? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
So I visited the French Pastry School a few weekends ago and LOVED IT!! Their cake program looks amazing! I was blown away by the course and the instructors. Like you said, Nicolas Lodge will be teaching 5 weeks of decorating. We will learn chocolate and sugar sculpting and seems to touch on everything and anything about cakes. I interviewed and got accepted into the program! I havent enrolled just yet, but Im 90% sure I am going to. It looks too amazing to pass up. SO EXCITED!

Hey yall! I am enrolled and attending the P.M. class at the FPS in August. I am moving with my 2 kids from Mississippi and don't know ANYONE up there so I've been trying to get in touch with classmates and just say hi! I was also wondering what area people are planning on moving to. Well just thought I'd introduce myself!

That's awesome. I'm jealous. I'm friends with one of the instructors there. You'll have a great time.

Hey All,
Just wanted to check in and see how the people from this thread who recently attended FPS liked the program. I'm thinking of starting this summer. I toured the campus 2 years ago while visiting my husband's family in Chicago and have been dreaming about it ever since.
Thanks!

Hi all,

 

Am new to the world of baking, but been very excited by it all so far. I am an Indian looking to do a course in cake decoration. So far I have checked out a few websites and found the FPS to be very promising. Can someone help me with details? Does the school deliver what it promises? 

 

For me to come down to Chicago becomes a big event, involving a lot of $$ and other things, so just want to be sure of what I am getting myself into.

 

One major question that comes into my mind is, after completion of the program, does the school help in placements? Are they easy to come along (placements)... i am sure, like any other industry, working under someone has its advantages. 

 

Plus, one does gets placed, what are the incentives that one can expect in this particular market?

 

Would be a great help if any of these questions can be answered.

 

Thanks for listening in.

 

Anu.
