But aside from the quality of the raw material, honing your baking and pastry-making skills is a must if you want to get into this demanding yet rewarding field. Training to be a pastry chef with a good baking and pastry arts program is an excellent passport to the world of bread and pastry at pastry shops, bakeries, hotels, and restaurants around the country and around the world. Though grounded in a strong practical emphasis, baking and pastry arts certificate and degree programs often combine theory and hands-on training to provide a complete set of knowledge and skills applicable to working in today's bakeries and pastry shops. Once thoroughly trained in your craft and working amidst the delicate aromas of a pastry shop, can you imagine a sweeter life?
