About this course
Is your favorite room the kitchen, and your favorite appliance the stove? If you answered yes to both questions, then the two-year Baking and Pastry Skills Diploma offered at Delaware Tech will prepare you for employment in the hospitality industry as a pastry cook. If you are already an industry professional, you will learn additional skills to help you to advance to a supervisory position. At Delaware Tech you will gain experience in the demonstration and skills kitchen, learning the details of culinary arts including food preparation, baking, sanitation and nutrition. You will also gain knowledge about cost controls, menu planning, producing food in quantity, and purchasing the foods to meet this need.
Courses are offered on a part-time basis, and the 33 credits earned in this program may be applied to the Associate Degree in the Culinary Arts or Food Service Management Technologies. Industry professionals and students will also acquire the mandatory classes required by the American Culinary Federation to begin the certification process.
This program is offered at the Dover and Stanton campuses.
