CEE culinary arts starts 4th batch of Advanced Baking and Pastry Course

A full class gathered for Advanced Baking and Pastry organized by CEE Culinary Arts at a retail Hypermarket in Shuwaikh. The class kicked off on Friday with ten mentors and two master chefs supervising the fully occupied cooking stations, making sure the students followed instructions and mixed the ingredients accordingly.

CEE Kuwait Project Manager opened the class with the introduction of mentors, masterchefs and new students who recently joined the course. In his brief introduction, he expressed gratitude for the support of the projects, bid farewell to a mentor Chef Raizza Anne Velasquez who is bound to leave for USA this coming week. A birthday song was also rendered by students and mentors to birthday celebrants with mentor Chef Bea Carvajal.

“I am deeply saddened as I leave Kuwait and the second family I have always looked forward to seeing every Friday for classes. I just hope that more people will get to know the importance of continuous learning and acquiring knowledge regardless of age and status,” said Chef Velasquez.

The Pastry and Baking classes of CEE Network offers classes that teach basic techniques to more advanced and complicated skills in baking and pastry making. Two prominent and well-experienced master chefs lead the team of Masterchef Mario Asuncion, who acquired his skills in Scotland and Masterchef Cris Ricafort, who did his education in Paris. Among the Masterchefs who provide assistance are Masterchefs Lyndon Dagsindal, Ramil de la Cruz and Aubrey Delmoro.
