Pressing On

Happy Friday! Just Bakery is in production mode baking up all these holiday goodies without the extra help of the students-and they are feeling it! If you haven’t checked out our awesome holiday specials yet-what are you waiting for?! We have Gingerbread Houses and Cookie Decorating kits if you want something creative to do with […]

The Only Constant Is Change

We did not want to risk the health and safety of our staff and students, so paused our in person kitchen instruction portion and have been working on keeping the students engaged virtually until January.
