One day at The Maya’s Kitchen..

Just when I thought of taking a baking class. I’ve always been involved in arts and music, my earliest passions in life, and thought of moving to a new direction where I can explore new interests such as culinary arts. I told myself that it would serve me in the future especially when moving away from parents, getting married and having my own family. My undeniable love for desserts also drove me to learn baking. I’ve been looking for a prestigious short baking course that’s worth my experience and to my luck, end up attending basic baking courses at The Maya’s Kitchen.

It is definitely one of the best courses I’ve been to. I’m not only referring to culinary arts courses but to courses in different areas. I’ve lived my life studying several courses such as voice, guitar, piano, charcoal painting, life coaching and personality development, theater acting workshops, and now, basic baking. It is my first time studying a culinary related course and the basic baking from Maya’s already satisfied me. I learned how to bake a variety of delicacies (bread, cakes, pastries, cookies..) and a few tips to bake them more effectively as to provide good taste, texture and appearance. Here are the snapshots taken during the demo and the hands-on.

If you’re looking for a baking and other culinary-related course, the Maya’s Kitchen is definitely a must go! It is good to interact with an experienced instructor and sometimes course mates, who will guide you in giving your desserts a better flavor. Another reason for appreciating this course is I gained some friends. It is a relief knowing that other adults still explore their passions as I’ve always been doing.
