Enough from us. Here is what chefs, alumni and food enthusiasts have to say about their experiences at The French Pastry School:

Thank you again for providing the space and atmosphere for a memorable meeting. EVERYONE LOVED IT! We got rave reviews and we are so grateful.

I'm in love with the French Pastry school. It’s such a great program. They really want to help you achieve your dreams in every possible way. So excited to get started.

Natasha Coggins | L’Art du Gâteau ‘12 | January, 2012

I am very excited about the possibility of learning from your renowned master chef instructors. After having visited several culinary schools, I am certain that your program is the right program for me. Your small class sizes, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, expert faculty, and high percentage of hands-on instruction make The French Pastry School superior to other pastry programs.

Cheryl Siegel | L'Arte de la Boulangrie '12 Applicant | November, 2011

I miss everyone at FPS. Every day I thank my lucky stars I went to FPS and learned all that I did. My foundation is much stronger than many of the other people I have worked with. Please keep doing what you are doing!

In April of 2011, I participated in the Pastry Chicago Cookie Competition, and it made me decide to pursue this education. I had always loved to bake, but I had so much fun preparing, and the competition gave me the confidence I needed to make the decision. It made me realize that I could make a career out of it because there is always something new and interesting that you can discover in pastry. It wasn't an easy decision; it's such a different industry than the one I'm in currently, but I know it will be worth the challenges because it makes me happy.

There is only one bad thing about [For the Love of Chocolate Gala]: it happens once a year. Mark this one in your calendars for 2012, as it is truly one of the best culinary events in Chicago, and they seem to outdo themselves year after year.

I cannot describe my experience of your For the Love of Chocolate fundraiser adequately. It was beyond words. I enjoyed it immensely. Kudos to you and The French Pastry School team.

Partnerships like what we have with The French Pastry School is what makes coming to work everyday (for 30 years) worth it.

Larry Binstein | Vice President | European Imports, LTD. | Chicago, IL

I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to attend in one of your classes. It was a great class, and I did learn a lot. You also made it very funny! The school is beautiful and I hope to visit again. Please keep me updated on your bread class. It was a great pleasure to meet you!

Chef Chris Hereghty | Executive Pastry Chef in New York City

Congratulations for your continual success! I have learned so much from chocolate showpiece class; I hope I can come back again in the future!
