The seminar immerses participants in a week where they make and sample a variety of popular baked goods.Participants spend four afternoons in AIB’s well-equipped baking labs where they produce pan and hearth breads, flour tortillas, batter cakes, cinnamon rolls, coffee cakes, cake doughnuts, and yeast-raised doughnuts, using the same ingredients and methods common in bakeries. The seminar increases awareness of the baking industry for people who provide it service, equipment, and ingredients.
