If she doesn't actually know more about home baking than any other living person, she certainly knows how to communicate and teach what she knows better than anyone I've ever encountered, and that's a lot of bakers.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 20, 2013
Carole Walter, a noted cookbook author, master baker, and acclaimed teacher with a track record impacting the lives of more than 30,000 students over the last three decades, today announced the launch of Carole Walter’s School of Baking at http://www.carolewalter.com/School.
"This baking school without walls," is an online low-cost subscription service offered to amateurs and professionals alike, at a fraction of the cost of in-person lessons without compromising the detailed instruction for which Carole is acclaimed. Designed to focus on techniques, the master baker aims to dispel common myths and fears surrounding baking.
"Carole Walter never stops astounding me," said Arthur Schwartz, an author, restaurant critic and former executive food editor of the New York Daily News. "If she doesn't actually know more about home baking than any other living person, she certainly knows how to communicate and teach what she knows better than anyone I've ever encountered, and that's a lot of bakers." While Carole brings her expertise to baking enthusiasts with this new platform, the Online School will provide a unique opportunity for baking enthusiasts to develop or hone skills in the comfort of their own kitchens, at their own pace with 3 levels of classes -- basic, intermediate, and advanced. These lessons are drawn from classes taught to thousands of students across the country. Included is detailed, interactive instruction from an acclaimed professional -- over 400 step by step photos, plus a 50 page reference companion, all at a reasonable cost.
Walter, a New Jersey native, has reported that demands for her classes remain high, but her in-person teaching schedule has become limited due to her 30 year battle with multiple sclerosis (MS). This on-line school affords Carole the chance to continue doing what she loves best: sharing her passion for baking with new generations of bakers. "I would like to be able to continue to share my knowledge," said Walter during an interview with New Jersey Monthly Magazine. "There are many students around the country and the world who don’t live near a cooking school or can’t afford the high price of cooking classes. I plan to challenge these ideas."
She is the author of 4 notable cookbooks: "Great Cakes" (1991); "Great Pies and Tarts" (1998); "Great Cookies" (2003); and "Great Coffee Cakes" (2007). She is a recipient of the James Beard and International Association of Culinary Professionals Awards for Best Baking Book of the Year. Walter, a Certified Culinary Professional, was also nominated for "Teacher of the Year" by the International Association of Culinary Professionals.
Sample recipe titles offered are: Chocolate Blizzard, Silver Cake with White Mountain Meringue, Lime Spiral filled with Lime Cream, Cinnamon Angel Cake, Vanilla Party Cake and more – all great American-style cakes.
