Consecutive Bread, Viennoiserie and Pastry Professional Training Programs.

See what sets us apart.

Academic Excellence
Our curriculum is based on the theory and science of baking. With a strong knowledge foundation, students learn to follow instructions, solve problems, and develop their own formulas. 

Intense Hands-on Training and Real-World Scale
Our curriculum includes an exceptionally high level of hands-on training. Nothing is just demonstrated—students actively create each formula. Students bake in high volume to develop strong production skills. For example, each student produces more than a thousand loaves of bread, hundreds of croissants and cookies, and dozens upon dozens of classic and specialty cakes, pies, tarts, quick breads, petit fours, confections, frozen desserts, plated desserts, and chocolates. 

Focused Individual Attention
We commit to small class sizes. Our 16-student limit fosters invaluable personal instruction.

Advanced Equipment and Spacious Classrooms
SFBI’s open facility provides plenty of room to practice. Our diverse and technologically-advanced equipment prepares graduates to use equipment found in any restaurant or bakery. 

Independent Access 
Professional Program students can use bakery classrooms during weekends to perfect skills and experiment. ( only available to students enrolled in all 12 series and applies after series 4. )

Prime Location 
Our campus is just south of downtown San Francisco, one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Students explore all that the Bay Area has to offer—spectacular wine country, gorgeous beaches and terrain, unique culture, and world-renowned restaurants.
