Petaling Jaya – The Academy of Pastry Arts Malaysia is set to open its doors to the public on the 16th of December, hosting Malaysia’s first Academy Pastry Festival Malaysia 2017. The Festival will feature world class pastries for sale, intricate hand-crafted sugar and chocolate sculptures, trial classes and Academy Alumni booths. All proceeds will go towards the Academy of Pastry Arts Scholarship Fund.
A premier professional school, The Academy of Pastry Arts Malaysia houses a number of International Award-Winning Chefs. They teach, and continue to hone their skills while churning out world class pastries on a weekly basis, unbeknownst to the residents of Petaling Jaya.
“Many of the pastries created at The Academy are competition worthy and generally served only at fine-dining establishments”, says Chef Niklesh Sharma, Founder and Managing Director of the Academy of Pastry Arts.
“Our students are passionate, and cannot wait to showcase their learnings to all Malaysians. There is so much skill involved in creating these works of edible art.
“All students will be involved, part-time as well as full timers who are at various stages of our signature 9-month Professional Advanced Diploma programme. We are also inviting some of our alumni to join us, in effort to support their businesses, and continue sharing our knowledge with them,” added Chef Sharma.
Sale booths will be set up inside the Academy’s kitchens allowing for guests to explore and experience a professionally equipped kitchen environment whilst shopping for pastries. Delectables available for purchase at the event will range from Chocolates, Cookies, French Pastries, Travel Cakes, Viennoiseries, Breads, Savoury Items and more.
Interested students and parents can participate in a trial class run by the Academy’s own award-winning chefs. Classes are limited, but those who secure a space, will be indulged with a unique experience featuring the Academy’s teachings, and philosophy that emphasises hands on training.
The Festival will also feature Academy Alumni booths manned by Xiaoly Koh, the owner of Xiao by Crustz, Frennee Sin, the owner of Le Clairé and Aaron Quay, the co-founder of Pretty On Plate.
Funds raised from the Festival will be channeled towards the Academy of Pastry Arts Scholarship Fund, which works closely with the “Shelter Home for Children”, based in Petaling Jaya.
“We truly hope to share our passion with all Malaysians, and to not only develop further appreciation and understanding of Pastry Arts as a whole, but also as a rewarding career choice,”expresses Chef Sharma in closing.
