Barrie, ON — Barrie's Georgian College is now home to a baking and pastry arts program. The new program starts in September with 48 students, a full first intake.

The one-year certificate is designed to turn into a two-year diploma program, says Anthony Borgo, a culinary professor at the school. The curriculum has been designed around the set educational standards for baking and pastry arts, but what makes it different from the others will be its style of teaching and programming delivery, he says.

Borgo notes Georgian's approach seeks to address the entrepreneurial spirit he is seeing in so many of today's culinary students.

"We're adding the entrepreneurial side — how to open and run a business."

The curriculum will also feature a strong focus on local ingredients and connecting with local suppliers.
