in partnership with portland adult education, we offered a six-week intensive baking exchange program with women students from around the world.
we used baking as education, a tool to understand one another via desserts while attaining a practical skill.
every week, a different dessert was featured, as one of the students took-on the role of guest teacher. showcasing her particular country through sugar and flour, the class had an opportunity to learn about another culture different from their own.
students expanded their minds and understanding of different parts of the world, gained confidence in a professional setting, and baked lots and lots of yummy product!
