Those who are going to school to pursue something in the arts are traditional, painters, singers, writers, filmmakers, or sculptors. People who are going to graduate with a hollow degree and go on to starve themselves trying to make money doing a service that is adored by many but essential to few. Nothing against the arts: I’m just being realistic. Most people who graduate with one of the conventional arts degrees will not find much success in it. They may find happiness in their work, and that is quite meaningful, but their monetary results will be limited. Because the market has less demand for art than the supply offered by people passionate about it. The conventional arts anyway.
But what about the art of the pastry? I have seen plenty of beautiful paintings and sculptures throughout my life, but none have ever affected me in the way a chocolate croissant has. Or a Danish. And let’s not be pretentious enough to leave donuts out of the equation here. There’s an argument that a Boston cream-filled chocolate donut is the most important piece of art ever created.
And unlike sculptures and paintings, the market has an endless demand for pastries. For some reason though, they don’t get the same amount of respect. Pastries are a high art form, and they need to be created by those with the right amount of education You can go to the University of Cincinnati and get a degree in the culinary arts, but that would be like trying to become a heart surgeon after getting a degree in “medicine.” If you’re passionate about pastries, and I know you are, you can’t waste your time learning the proper knife methods for chopping vegetables, or how to properly roast a pig. You need to learn about pastries. If you’re not already convinced, read on to find out the many benefits of going to pastry school.
Pastries are Delicious
I already covered this a bit earlier, but it really can not be stated too many times. The pastries are so good. Get up right now, walk to the nearest grocery store or gas station food mart, and get any pastry. Take a bite.
I know, it’s amazingly delicious. And that is the lowest common denominator of the pastry world. Just imagine the type of pastries you and your classmates will be made by the time graduation rolls around.
If you graduate from pastry school, you won’t have to spend time worrying about your career path, or what you qualify for. You will be qualified for making pastries. You won’t have a broad, unspecified culinary arts degree that could land you any type of restaurant job. You will be recruited to make pastries
Like water and air, pastries are required to keep the human body functioning. You will never find yourself in a dried-up job market because people will always be begging for pastries.
