I'm a yacht chef and I've got some precious paid time off work to study in April, but it's max 6 weeks. I've been looking at short courses, but everything seems really amateur. Originally I was looking to improve my pastry skills, but I"m not finding a short enough course in pastry and am willing to look at anything as long as it's going to be worth my time/ cash.... if I don't find something soon I lose the time off and continue working as usual. I'm able to travel pretty much anywhere. Another point- on looking at all the pastry options I decided I might put the pastry training off till next year and do the 5 month program at Ferrandi in Paris. Does anyone have an opinion on the school/ program? Thanks folks.
