KUL IN profesionalni slasticar

Professional Pastry and Confections

The wide range of confectionery products making their way onto the market has created the need for studying sweets and desserts as an entity of their own within the culinary arts. Given that classic confectionary techniques have evolved with the modern technology that now shapes the gastro world, this sweet culinary branch offers extensive study material. Moreover, the demand for trained professionals is increasing in this field, as artisan pastry shops and bakeries are gaining popularity. For those who are interested in taking their baking skills to a professional level, Culinary Institute Kul IN offers a professional program in modern pastry and confections.

Daily pastry lessons are supplemented with field trips to renowned restaurants and food productions centers in Croatia as well as guest lectures from successful Croatian and international chefs. In addition, students take classes in enology and wine pairing.

Upon successful completion of the program, Kul IN awards students with a certificate for a Pastry Chef.
