New school year, new pastry intake!

This year, 17 young girls joined our Bayon Pastry School program.
The classes started on September 4th but some of the girls arrived earlier to follow the refresher classes.
Our 16 students began got acquainted with the school and started their first English and math lessons with Marie their teacher, assisted by Vottey. But what the students enjoyed the most was their 1st pastry class where they realized financiers! After 3 hours spent in the pastry lab, the suspicious students could finally taste this cakes with unknown flavors. The results were unanimous: it is delicious!
Mid-October a 1st group will already be on a training course in a hotel. This gives them the time to work in order to be ready to enter professional life!
We wish them a successful year!
