Nicholas Green, 18, of Pymble, is an apprentice baker at Pioik Bakery in Pyrmont. Q. What did you like about the course? A. Bread is something that I have always wanted to know how to make. I really enjoy the science behind the whole process and coming up with new ideas and new products. The course is very practical with a lot of hands-on experience. Q.
What are your plans for the future? A. I have been accepted into The Culinary Institute of America for an associate’s degree in Baking and Pastry Arts. After my time in America I hope to travel to Germany to study rye and wholegrain breads. After I have finished my study I want to open my own bakery/cafe in Sydney. Q.
What advice would you give others? A. By doing as much as you can both at TAFE and at work you will really love baking bread and you will get the full benefits from the course and the apprenticeship program.
