    Hey everyone!  I'm a student at American University in Washington, DC and I'm studying business with a focus on entrepreneurship.  My main goal is to open up a bakery.  I have a question pertaining to what culinary school/program I should enroll in.

    Located very close to my school is L'Academie de Cuisine in Maryland.  They have a 20 week program in which you learn the basics of the pastry arts.  I could complete this while still in school here in DC.

    But then Johnson and Wales has a program called garnish your degree, which will take a year to complete after I earn my bachelors.

    My question is if anyone knows what may be better (quality wise) or if you have any reviews of either school.  

    Thank you so much!

    My advice is to forget both of the aforementioned schools! Neither school is worth the exorbitant tuition that they charge!

    Check the following links for a community college which suits your needs and finances:

    ACF

    Maryland

    Virginina

    Shaw's Guide

    Maryland
    Virginia

    Anne Arundel Community College

    Baking and Pastry Program

    Baking and Pastry Arts Operations Certificate

    HCAT Staff

    HCAT Instructional Staff

    HCAT Food and Culinary Arts Instructors

    HCAT Culinary Arts and Wine Academy

    College Directory - Adjunct [Susan Notter]







    Please see my post about the two best community college Baking and Pastry programs in the USA in this thread.

    Good luck. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/chef.gif
