French brand de Buyer, manufacturer of pastry utensils and cookware, is a sponsor of the new Claire Clark Academy, a dedicated pastry school that opened last month at Milton Keynes College.
De Buyer equipped all the cooking stations with a selection of pastry equipment from silicone moulds, perforated pastry rings, whisks, pastry mats and trays to some of its best cookware.
Signature FSE, which supports de Buyer in the UK and is also a sponsor of the Claire Clark Academy, was involved from the start and is glad to see the first results of this partnership.
“The Claire Clark Academy will certainly inspire and train the future great British pastry chefs, that’s why we are thrilled that de Buyer and ourselves are involved in this initiative,” said Paula Sherlock, managing director of Signature FSE.
“Students, professional chefs and home bakers all deserve to learn and improve their skills using the best pastry and cooking equipment available on the market.”
De Buyer partnered with renowned pastry chef Claire Clark at last year’s Hotelmypia, creating a selection of patisserie creations using de Buyer’s perforated pastry rings to be displayed at the show daily.
The brand is also a corporate sponsor of the Association of Pastry Chefs, whose 200 members include some of the best pastry chefs in the country.
The Claire Clark Academy is open now for part-day, one-day, evening and weekend courses for home bakers and professionals and will start its full-time programme for Milton Keynes College students in September 2017.
