Learn Pastry Arts for Less


Enrollment is reportedly up at the French Culinary Institute, but as further incentive to career changers and the hesitant unemployed, the school will take $4,000 off the price of pastry-arts seminars, starting in March. The ten-month program (available at different times) will still set you back $32,750, but that pays for a curriculum designed by Jacques Torres and teachers like cake master Ron Ben-Israel. [FCI]
