The word pastry comes to us from the French who take their food very seriously, to the point that the word "patisserie" cannot be used legally in France unless a bakery employs a licensed maître pâtissier (or master pastry chef). Along with the skills needed to create fabulous pastries, hard work is also required to build a career in the culinary arts specializing in baking and pastry. A certificate or a degree in baking and pastry can give you the professional, hands-on training you need to create the finest of pastries and start your baking and dessert career. Then you can start getting paid to do what you love by finding employment as a master pastry chef, baker, or caterer.
