Eton Global Institute: Our Breads and Spreads Lifestyle Course (Dimasalang Sampaloc Manila)

I've heard of Eton International School.  I only know it because it offers Chinese so it's a typical choice for Chinese in the area.  But, I was surprised to find out that they established Eton Global Institute Center for Culinary & Hospitality Management.

One Saturday, me and my friends joined in on the Breads and Spreads Lifestyle Course and we had so much fun!

The texture test

First there was a demonstration and then there was a hands-on experience where we had to do everything ourselves.  Each table or team had a chef on standby to assist and inspect.

The team practiced good teamwork.  We took turns in doing different tasks.

What I liked about the class is it thought us the basic foundation (from ground up).

Prior to this, I tried baking using pre-mixes bought from grocery stores.  But, it felt purely mechanical.  I did not understand how breads work.

Here's we understood the science and art of bread-making so we  knew how to measure, tweak and substitute ingredients. 

The schedule is also very systematic.  There wasn't any idle time at all.  While some breads were being baked, we did something else.

Our Italian Foccacia

And, the lessons were wholesome.  We were even thought on how to slice our Italian Foccacia.

Caramel Cinnamon Roll
During the class, we are given a recipe card.  (Perhaps, I will share all those soon). 

It was very well-prepared.  It lists down ingredients alphabetically with quantity and unit. 

It also lists down the procedure step by step. 

Aside from the learning part, we all discovered also how fun and therapeutic doing labor and seeing the fruit of our labor is.
It made us appreciate breads more.

In fact, my team (we named ourselves the "baguettes") are very proud of our masterpiece.

Although we know we have much to learn by practice and experience.

Overall, we loved the experience!  I'd happily come back to Eton Global Institute for more classes!
