• The Baking and Pastry Excellence Video Series

    The CIA's Baking and Pastry Excellence Program is a documentary series that seeks out the world’s best bakers and pastry chefs. Through these experts we explain techniques and flavor dynamics within their cultural contexts, and add them to a growing online video library that effectively preserves these traditions for our industry and future generations of bakers, pastry chefs, cooks, food writers and culinary enthusiasts.
    Learn how you can adapt these world baking and pastry traditions for American menus, by visiting the Adapting Traditions page. Here you can watch videos and download printable recipes from our sponsor, Rich Products.
