About this pro

Hi there,

My name is Eddie. I have been a pastry chef for many years. In my baking profession, besides baking for bakeries for years, I also find joys in training new trainees. I've learned a lot tips and tricks in teaching those who start in the beginning position. 

I now have a small business in catering my baked goods to restaurants and coffee shops. So my schedule is very flexible.

 

After baking personally and professionally for a long time, i have realized that in order to be a great baker (not a good baker), one have to be creative and has a good knowledge of science in baking. Therefore, my class doesn't include only recipes but also basic science of baking, how to be creative with substitutions.

Baking is a fun activity and I am certain that there are a lot of good instructors out there with a good knowledge of what they do. But in order to have an inspiration to bake even when the class is already finished is also very important. You should find a teacher that you are very comfortable with. And the only way to know that is to talk to your future on the phone and see if you both have chemistry or not.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

If you are a new beginner. You may need to know what you would like to bake and a good teacher will be able to explain to you about the class and even help you come up with a suitable course for your need.
