Thoughts on the Program

Class 29 has completed the classroom portion and is moving on to their last month in the kitchen and retail shop! The students took three tests this week in Nutrition, Supervision, and ServSafe.  It has been a busy two months and you can tell they are looking forward to the break from reading multiple chapters…

All Good Things Must Come to an End

Our class and bakery program began with January and will end in March. What started as a group of seven has dwindled down to four students that are committed to seeing the program through. We have completed reading in four ManageFirst textbooks, with just one chapter left of the fifth. Along with reading the books,…

It’s Go Time!

Welcome to week 5 at Just Bakery!  We are almost halfway through our class program and have a schedule that reflects it.  Time management is probably one of the most important and applicable skills we have discussed thus far, as we are in the full swing of class, making progress in every subject, and we…

Final Countdown..to the Kitchen!

New Year, New Additions!

The first week has been quite the transition for the new students.  With the addition of Nutrition, Cost Control, Management, and Supervision, our program covers a lot more information. The exciting part about all this extra work is that the students can now earn a potential 12 credits to a culinary degree at MATC!  This…

Final’s Week

The students have finished the classroom portion of the class!  Final’s week is hard.  Flashbacks to school days hard.  We have a math final that combines all the knowledge they’ve learned from fractions, bakery totals sheets, and converting recipe batch sizes to meet your orders.  There is also, of course, the ServSafe test, which is…

Tis the Season!

This week has been a busy one for Just Bakery.  Our baker’s and students were working overtime making sure all the orders were met on time.  In addition to the hard work in the kitchen, the student’s time in the classroom is winding down:  next week is final’s week! Science presentations are Wednesday, mock interviews…
