Curriculum from New York City’s Original Bread Artisan
ICE’s 200-hour professional bread baking course was developed by Chef Sim Cass, one of the founding bakers of New York City’s acclaimed Balthazar Bakery and one of the pioneers of the modern bread baking movement. Born and raised in the UK, Sim was among the first bakers to introduce New York City diners to naturally fermented, European-style breads. Today, his signature darkly toasted loaves continue to inspire our nation’s now widespread passion for handcrafted bread, and Sim serves as a consultant for some of the world’s most respected restaurants, bakeries and bread baking schools. He has also been featured in such outlets as The New York Times, Food Arts magazine and the Martha Stewart show.
