Would I recommend the school? Thats depends... There's pros and cons. Read my blog and you can decide yourself.
Hello, I don't know if this will be helpful to anyone but I am currently looking at attending ENSP and thought I would share a bit about it. When I started looking at ENSP I found some things on the internet (including this feed) and generally they were quite mixed reviews. I have since found past students and have been emailing them, they have all spoken incredibly highly of the school and of the chefs. I went to look at the school recently before I make the decision, as it is a lot of money for someone like me. I instantly fell in love with it. The kitchens looked well equipped and the accommodation was lovely. I was taken in to a current class where the students were very friendly and let me try some of the products they had just made, they were also very happy to answer any questions I had. The woman who showed me round was also very friendly, helpful and professional and has since sent me a list of past students which I can email to ask about their past experiences. Everything I have heard so far has seemed very positive and I am fairly sure I will be applying to ENSP in the future.
I am interested in ENSP for their French Bakery Arts program. After reading through this and a few other threads, I'm extremely hesitant! Has anyone attended in 2016 who can provide some insight on their experience?
I wanted to do the French Bakery Arts program as I'm interested in a career change and wanted to test the waters before diving in. This program was 2 months, but they have just shortened it to 1 month, which seems far too short to learn everything!
Any insight on the current organisation of the program (as this seems to be the biggest issue) or the French Bakery Arts program would be appreciated!
Also - I'd love to speak with someone about the area of France it is in! I love hiking and the outdoors, and am hoping to spend weekends exploring the countryside! This was an appeal of this school not being in France, but the mixed reviews on the actual program are throwing me a bit...
