Taking a Big Step in becoming a Pastry Chef
People with disabilities have completed training classes

The completion ceremony of the confectionery course was held at "FREUNDLIEB" café (4 Ikuta-Cho, Chuo-Ku, Kobe City). This course is intended for motivated people with mental or psychiatric disabilities in order that they may become pastry chefs by gaining advanced skills in confectionery making. 8 participants were awarded completion certificates.

The organizers include Prop Station, a social welfare organization (Higashinada-Ku, Kobe City). Starting in June of this year, the eight students awarded were from the three prefectures of Hyogo, Osaka, and Wakayama. The instructors include Mr. Jyunji Yagi, pastry chef at the confectionery shop Morozoff, and a confectionery master authorized by the Austrian government. All participants attended without absence in their quest to obtain professional skills.

Mr. Kenji Fukakusa (34) from Hannan City in Osaka was quoted saying, "I felt it tough sometimes, but all my stress dispersed when I tasted the sweets I made. I would like to further develop my skills after the experience I had here." Products created by the class were served to people whom attended the ceremony.
