In terms of Nepal, we don’t have any institutes that provide advanced classes in the field of Bakery and Pastry as we don’t find the required tools and equipment in the market. Its because the advanced courses require advanced tools that are expensive and require technical knowledge to handle.

Plus, we don’t have the manpower to maintain and replace if technical issues occur. Ingredients required for such programs need to be imported from foreign countries and because of taxes and the price, it will be quite impossible to conduct such kinds of classes. Therefore, it is recommended to either work for bigger companies or work abroad to gain such kind of expertise. Highly interested individuals will have to travel abroad to get advanced degrees in baking and pastry arts.
