"The teaching of pastry and bakery is (in my opinion) based on two instruments I consider fundamental: the correct execution of the work methods and the technical knowledge of the ingredient. Thus, beyond the teaching of the execution of the single recipes or preparations chosen for a didactic aim, what I try to transmit in my courses is that type of approach to the raw material that would allow to every student to be able to face all the pastry and bakery recipes they would be passionate about. This approach cannot no pass though the study of the most common bases and the relative "key" ingredients, all connected in a inter-twined way: that is why each single lesson is voted to a theme that never remains an "isolated" topic, but "one step" of a more articulated and complex journey".
