I just got back from some basic training in French pastry, but I'm looking now to expand that. I've been looking for a program that offers classes in English or French, but other than food names and anime slogans, I know no Japanese or Korean, but I love the pastries that stem from these cultures. I'd love to learn more, but I think it's best to learn FROM that country. If I can't get to a school there that's able to teach me, I'm open to suggestions about pastry schools elsewhere, but I would like to focus on Asian pastries (it doesn't have to be just sweets, I'd love to learn to make Chinese buns too!). Does anyone know where I'd be able to find a school like that? Or even an internship where I'd be able to learn by doing?
I just want to make pastries all day. But not in my own kitchen because I found out this weekend while baking my grandma's birthday cake that my oven doesn't even fit a quarter sheet cake pan. Is that too much to ask?
