I recently toured the school's facilities with my daughter, who is interested in a career in pastry. We were recommended to this school by a well-known Chef...that we are acquainted with. Years ago...I was the "head" cake-decorator for a large grocery store...part of a chain. So...I have a little experience with pastry... all that aside. I was very impressed with the facilities, the curriculum...AND the staff of The French Pastry School. The facilities are up-to-date with ample equipment for the students to use during class. The teaching method is very hands-on. Daily, the students perform, in pairs, what was just demonstrated by the Chef(s). What is really most impressive...is the small class size...and close professional relationships between the Chefs and the students. Relationships that last far beyond the student's training. The depth of training here is excellent...question and answer times are encouraged. Professionalism and respect for the Craft are inspired through excelled teaching... Make an appointment to tour the facility . They'll answer all your questions and allow you to sit in on the classes.... Contact some of the alumni and ask more questions, I think, under even the closest scrutiny...you'll still be impressed...

Pros: ..simply the best pastry school in the midwest...

Cons: yes, you're going to pay a little more...but not too much

The first person to review this specialized trade school does not appear to have actually been enrolled in the program. Perhaps he visited campus, but one cannot accurately inform others based on touring campus or observing a class in progress. Yes, the program is expensive but you get what you pay for. As in life, there are no guarantees; but an apt pupil with a desire to succeed will certainly do better than someone who does not wish to really be there. Clearly, one needs to have a certain drive, determination, and passion to go through the program. The same could be said for both Law school or Medical school. Hope this was informative. :0)

This scholl is so expensive, their tuition is too much, while after completing the course you still would not be able to be confident that you will land in a good paying job. I have to admit, that they really have good equipment, provide expensive ingredients for the course and have some really good guest chef from time to time. However, you need to have real passion to go to this scholl otherwise, it will really be a waste of money.

In Short
This Loop school has been the culinary training ground for anyone who's ever longed to dabble in rolled fondant or create a chocolate mold. Three master pastry chefs lead groups of 16 to 18, teaching the art of…
