Become a patissier to unleash creativity and add new colors to desserts
Desserts have perhaps become part of Hong Kong people’s lives. Whether happy or sad, we enjoy sitting down at a dessert store with a few of our friends to savor fine sweets, in hopes to satisfy cravings or seek spiritual comfort. Hence, a great variety of dessert stores and Tong Sui shops have emerged throughout the streets of Hong Kong, providing those who aspire to join the industry with even more work opportunities.
Don’t be mistaken—making desserts is not an easy thing to do. Patissiers require a high level of concentration and attention to details, in a bid to ensure that the amount and proportion of each ingredient is spot-on. Moreover, they must be good on their feet as they spend the majority of time standing, often taking only a brief rest when their shift is over. Therefore, those who wish to become a patissier need to have strong willpower. However, when a patissier’s creation is praised by others, the huge sense of accomplishment is unlike anything else.
Besides, one’s path is not limited to working at dessert stores once he or she completes the patissier program—bakeries, restaurants, hotels and more all provide many jobs for patissiers that allow them to give full play to their skills. Once they accumulate more experience, they may even have the opportunity to become food critics, cookbook authors, Master patissiers and more. Unleash your creativity to create endless possibilities!Interested in this industry?
