Are you looking to enroll in a hotel management course?
Do you consider a hotel management degree the ideal gateway for starting a career in baking as a professional chef or even starting your own bakery or cafe?
Well, then Stop right there, because what I am going to tell you will save you from wasting three years of your life, and lakhs of rupees in the process.
This is Chef Kirty Labra, the founder of Truffle Nation Academy, and before I talk about Who I am and what we do,
You must be wondering why I made that outrageous claim about Hotel Management?
In the next few minutes, I will explain why getting a degree in hotel management can be a massive mistake for aspiring bakers and food entrepreneurs.
Now, here are some of the statements you would have heard by institutions offering a degree in hotel management –
“We offer world-class education, with best-in-class infrastructure.”
“Get employment in leadership positions.”
“It’s more than a degree; it’s a career-maker.”
These statements sometimes prove enough to attract the best of minds to enroll into a hotel management degree.
But, when you get into the real highly competitive world, these over-hyped statements will fall flat on the ground.
In fact, in a report published in the Business Standard, “Less than 11% of hotel management graduates are employable after college”.
And because of the ongoing pandemic, the Hotel Association of India fears that about four crore jobs would be at risk in the Hospitality Industry.
Furthermore, being a management degree, for aspiring chefs or bakers, the curriculum in these institutions is frighteningly outdated.
Almost nothing worthwhile is taught when it comes to practical concepts like mastering the art of baking cakes, becoming an artisanal baker or how to start and grow a profitable bakery café.
And because of the theoretical approach, students rarely bake in a kitchen and are forced to learn how to bake on a blackboard.
To add to that, there is no focus on Eggless Baking, which in a country like India, proves to be a massive let down.
Little attention is given to students, as over 20 students are assigned to a single instructor.
Finally, students end up wasting three years of their lives, enduring long class hours and going through a mandatory internship where students oversee day to day operations of a hotel, and rarely get a chance to work inside the kitchen.
And they proudly sell this for around 4 to 5 Lac Rupees.
To quote my friend and one of the lead Chefs at the Truffle Nation Academy,
“As someone who wanted to be a professional chef, the Hotel Management degree felt like burning my hard-earned money with fire and live through it for three long years.”
Now, a degree in Hotel Management is not a scam. For people looking to work in hotels, aviation, and the larger hospitality industry, it can be beneficial.
But, for someone who wants to be a professional baker or someone who wants to set up their home bakery or cafe, getting a hotel management degree, ultimately proves to be a step in the wrong direction.
So, What is the solution?
How do you turn your passion for baking into a profession?
You have a dream of starting a bakery, but how do you learn the skills to make bakery-style desserts consistently?
In short, how do you become a successful professional baker?
Well, the journey of a successful professional baker starts with mastery of techniques.
You need to have an understanding of the science behind baking, the role of different ingredients, how to use the different tools, and finally how to combine all of that with your creativity.
For all of this, you need the right training.
You need someone who helps you through the different recipes and helps you understand the minute details and the techniques you will use to consistently bake five-star desserts.
Next, you need to get hands-on. You need to bake different recipes. You need to master different techniques like mixing the batter the right way to decorating your cake with royal icing.
While doing this, you will make mistakes, and you will struggle with some recipes or some techniques.
And here, you need the right guidance; you need a mentor who can help you, when you go wrong and give you personalized suggestions that help take your baking skills to the next level.
And finally, in this competitive world, you need the right roadmap. You need to understand the latest trends in the world of baking, you need to understand what desserts are loved by clients and you also need to understand the business side of things.
From the basics of setting up your bakery and finalizing your menu to marketing your bakery to the right audience
