I'm a culinary student from Brazil and currently going to school here. I have an idea on opening a bakery shop in my city focused on American pastry and baking. Things like bagels, cupcakes, brownies, pies( mississippi, apple and key lime), donuts etc. But I'm having a hard time were I can find a course or school that would focus on this kind of recipes. Everything is about italian or french cuisine. Do you guys know about courses focused on American pastry and baking? I have found some classes from smaller schools that offer these kinds of classes but usually they only last a day or if it is a month long but only on mondays. Since I live in Brazil it would be best if the course has everyday classes or as much as possible. I have searched for many recipes online and some of them people love it but some I'm not quite there yet. Since I'm going to start a business it is obvious that the right recipe has to be in place.
On a side note, here in Brazil there are some people that make american pastry/baking recipes but they are usually dry or very dry (muffins, donuts etc)
Thanks for the help!
