SLM in Paris for Pastry School

$5,225 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 87 people in 18 months
It's no secret how influential of a city Paris is to me. From the culture to the pastries, it's a continual source of inspiration not only in how the world thinks about food, but how I think about desserts.

The ultimate goal of Shikha la Mode since its inception has been to open my own dessert spot one day. This has meant finding training that matches my level of kitchen experience while offering something new. I soon realized that such a class doesn't exist in the United States. So I turned to the OG city for pastry—Paris.

I applied for an advanced pastry bootcamp at Ferrandi, a well-known cooking school in Paris—and got in! I'll be going this June to deep dive into tarts, entremets, and chocolate for an entire week!

I'm super excited for this opportunity, but I need a little help; the tuition is $5,000. I'll be bringing all my own equipment (knives, apron, shoes), but I'm looking for support from the SLM community to help send me there!

Anything you donate will help towards getting me to Paris for my dream opportunity. I'm also offering two bonuses:

Donate $50 or more: I will make and send you a dessert based on what I learn in my workshop. If you are in SF, I'll deliver it myself; if you don't live here, I'll priority mail it wherever you are.

Donate $100 or more: A handmade dessert delivered to you, plus a little something extra from Paris - it'll be a surprise!

I'm super excited to be able to continue my culinary education, and I hope y'all can help make it a reality!

If I had $420 I would have donated that, but I thought $42.0 would still get the message across
