Baking Diploma/Certification in India

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I thought before I go outside to India to work or learn, I should get some basic training here itself. Although it is still expensive, it's much cheaper than other places (as far as I know).

I'm not sure how good India's training system would be. Any place should be alright for people who are just starting. I am anyway reading Gisslen and Figoni, so I can still get some knowledge that might be missed. Has anyone attended any baking school in India? Would you advise me to go there?

I came across these two programmes http://www.ibcablr.net/diploma-in-baking and http://www.lavonne.in/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=58&Itemid=404

The first one, though more expensive seems more comprehensive, but I'm not satisfied.

 

Can anyone tell me about a relatively inexpensive place in or around India, or should I just get any job and take it from there?

 

Thank you

Thanks for posting but unfortunately I don't think we have much of a user population from India. That being said it may be difficult to find an answer to your question here. Before you begin looking for a program I highly recommend you figure out what you really want to do? Will you be working in India after? Travelling abroad can be a rewarding experience and you can get a lot of experience with various cuisines so I might suggest before going to school travelling a bit and trying different kitchens.

Thanks,

If I was going to have any regrets in my life it would be the offers that included travel were extended and I declined because I thought there would be time later on down the road.

Don't get me wrong....my nowhere near complete "bucket list" (anyone got a better term for that?) is full of experiences that would make a few jaws drop and others green with envy.

So you have some things to think about.
Will you or won't you?

I cannot answer this for you.

I can however advise that the paths not taken ( not all but most likely more than a few) will always be there to haunt you with the what ifs you take out and examine from time to time.

Sending you good thoughts .....
