The Pastry Chef Guild of Alberta
In mid 2000, a group of Calgary Pastry Chefs formed a professional organization to promote trade education and improve trade standards.
The Guild is now recognized by professional chefs, bakers and pastry chefs. The Guilds long-term objective is to get involved or offer counsel to the Government on trade matters in the Pastry trade.
The Guild holds regular monthly meetings (except July, August, and December) so members can come together to take care of Guild business, meet friends, exchange ideas and enjoy the hospitality of the host. Guest speakers whose expertise might be useful are often invited to speak about their specialties (financial, health, apprenticeship, merchandising, etc.) Frequent seminars on chocolate work, sugar artistry, marzipan, moulding, etc. are also offered. One or more of our members usually leads these seminars.
