After completing the programme and applying the taught methods, I have come to realize that the skills and recipes we initially found daunting are actually manageable with practice. The newfound confidence I developed has encouraged me to venture into trying other dishes that I previously dismissed as too challenging. Moreover, this experience has helped me grow in terms of self-assurance and patience, as baking requires time. I highly recommend anyone whois uncertain about joining the programme to give it a try. The instructors not only excel in their expertise but also demonstrate patience towards our queries.Additionally, the programme allows us to read and study at our own pace while still receiving valuable online resources. The online demonstrations provide an opportunity for students to learn from the lecturers and ask any questions they may have, which greatly contributes to the learning process.
