San Francisco Baking Institute

Since 1996, the San Francisco Baking Institute (SFBI) has trained thousands of professional and aspiring bakers from all over the world. We have acted as the unofficial training site for several award-winning Baking USA Teams and hosted a variety of international groups from countries including Russia, China, and Japan, interested in bringing artisan baking back to their homelands.

SFBI is recognized within the baking industry as a place where artisan baking is respected, appreciated and celebrated. We are passionate about sharing our knowledge and enthusiasm with students and clients in an effort to raise the level of the craft.

SFBI Mission

The San Francisco Baking Institute creates an environment where students discover and appreciate the textures, flavors, and aromas of freshly baked bread and pastry.

We build a foundation of technical skills while encouraging creative expression.

We promote the professionalism of baking and pastry arts by contributing to the pool of skilled, dedicated bakers and pastry chefs.

SFBI Staff

Our talented staff is dedicated to providing a comprehensive learning experience that combines the value of hands-on training with the equally important experience of individual baking creativity. Our class sizes are deliberately smaller than most other culinary schools, so that we can provide you with better opportunities for interaction with your instructor and fellow students.


Gain Knowledge, Skills and Inspiration.

Fulfill your dream of becoming a professional baker or strengthen and refine your current baking skills in our continuing education classes. As the only school in the U.S. dedicated exclusively to artisan bread and pastry, SFBI is proud to offer you a comprehensive series of Five-day Bread and Pastry Workshops and our signature Bread & Pastry Professional Training Program. Our talented instructors are committed to providing you with the knowledge and inspiration you need to master the art of bread and pastry.

Class sizes are deliberately small to allow for personal, hands-on instruction and experimentation. Our spacious facility, just a short drive from downtown San Francisco, offers large classrooms and technologically advanced equipment, giving students the rare opportunity to train in an environment very similar to most modern baking facilities.
